Every room in the house has its own distinct character. There is the stately elegance of the living room. The workhorse persona of the kitchen. The calmness of the bedroom. Just as the décor of each room provides its character, so does the décor of the family room provide its character: fun!
The best family rooms are designed around the age of the kids. For younger kids, it’s a great idea to have smaller tables and chairs in the family room this way they don’t feel the need to climb all over the room, but as the kids grow more intellectual items can be arranged such as bookshelves. A great family room uses bright colors keeping with the house’s overall theme. Why bright colors? It promotes the idea of excitement, and that’s critical to the family room being the place everyone hangs out in.
