Family room is a comfortable place where everyone can put their feet up. Check out these design ideas to maximize the comfort and relaxing style of your living room. A cozy family room needs comfortable things. You may start with the floor. An area rug will provide warmth and comfort and a design focal point for the space. Next, check out a selection of the perfect chairs, ottomans and recliners, just what you need to put your feet up, read, watch, or do nothing but enjoy your favorite drink. For the crowd, add a sofa or two. Next, the entertainment center or wall unit, perhaps is matching the palette of the other furniture.
A roaring fireplace or wood stove can also be a entertainment center, while making things toasty. And don't forget a bookcase. Not just for books, stow laptops and tablets, and use them to display your treasures. It is important to conceal and organize it. You need to keep board games, cards, gaming accessories, and electronic components for music and movies out of sight but organized and easily accessible. Freestanding storage pieces, such as an armoire, cupboard, or console, work beautifully for this purpose.
You could also create a built-in, such as this handsomely rustic recessed cabinet with two doors and four drawers for hidden storage and an upper open shelf or cubby for display. You should think "no fuss". Don't overlook easy maintenance surfaces throughout your game room. This is a space where beverages and snacks abound, so look for stain-resistant upholstery (leather, microfiber, and fabrics treated for outdoor use) and select flooring that stands up to spills and dirt, such as this slate flagstone.
It is better to socialize in the round. Do include in your furnishings plan a table and chairs for playing cards, putting together puzzles, and engaging in multi-player computer gaming. A round table is best for these activities because players can see one another and chat more easily than when seated at a rectangular table. Do not forget to control the light. Don't neglect lighting and room darkening needs. Every game room benefits from a layered lighting plan that includes fixtures for overall lighting as well as task lights directed onto play areas, such as the pool table, card table, and bar top.
Use accent lights to show off artwork or architecture, such as these sconces, which highlight the rustic support beams and textured stone wall. Put all fixtures on dimmers so you can adjust light levels to set a mood. When you want to watch movies while it's still daylight, windows outfitted with blackout shades help eliminate glare on the screen. The last but not the least is Getting comfortable. Do provide comfortable places to sit. This sectional sofa pairs with a leather club chair and poufs to seat a good-size group for movie viewing or video games. Chairs from the nearby gaming table can easily be pulled into the nearby arrangement for additional seating.
