3 Simple Family Room Design Tips

Modern Suburban Single Family Home

Learn how to design a family room in your home.

Whether you are building your home from the ground up or renovating your living space, you need a room that is designated specifically for your family.  You and your family have busy, hectic lives, so you need a space where everyone can relax and spend time with one another.  You need to take time designing a comfortable family room that you loved ones will enjoy on a daily basis.  Luckily, there are a few simple tips to designing your dream family room.

Keep It Open

When it comes to designing a family room, you want to create one open space.  An open floor plan is easy to navigate and allows for large furniture pieces. You can put in a large sectional without trying to fight for square-footage in a sectioned off living area.  An open floor plan allows you and your family to hang in one space without feeling isolated from one an another.

Select Your Flooring Wisley

One of the most important aspects of any family room design is the flooring.  You want flooring that is both durable and comfortable. There are several carpeting options that are simple to clean and withstand everyday wear and tear.  If you a more low maintenance option, then you can install hardwood flooring and place a rug over top. Hardwood is a good choice for large families and lasts longer than carpeting.

Create A Focal Point

When planning your family room design, you need to have a focal point to engage your family and friends.  In many households, a television or entertainment system is the focal point in a family room. You can also use artwork or a fireplace as a focal point in your family room.  A fireplace is a wise feature to invest in especially since the winter season is arriving shortly.
