How to Decorate a Family Room

 

A large number of homes these days enjoy the benefits of both a living room and a family room. Both serve similar functions but have a slightly different look and feel to them. A family room does what it says on the tin. It is essentially space for the family to come together, relax and spend some quality time with each other, whereas a living room tends to be slightly more formal and used more by adults and for special occasions.

As a result, the décor of a family room tends to be more relaxed, with comfortable furniture for lounging, plenty of storage and places for kids to play. Below we’ve pulled together some top tips on how to decorate a family room which can be enjoyed by all!

 

Corner Sofa and Sofa Bed Ideas

The key to decorating your family room is to utilise furniture which is comfortable, practical and durable and also injects some real personality into your living space. A corner sofa can be a good choice – offering plenty of space for everyone to snuggle up, watch the television and play video games. When it comes to fabric, a leather corner sofa can be a sensible option, it’s easy to clean, comfortable and still brings a stylish aesthetic to any living space.

Alternatively, a small corner sofa and a children’s armchair can sit nicely alongside one another, with the option of the kids’ armchair providing a contrast to its counterpart. If there’s enough room for more than one sofa, a kid’s sofa bed could be a good alternative, doubling up as the perfect location for a sleepover!

For those whose family room doubles up as a living room, it’s about finding furniture that is multi-purpose – offering comfort, durability and style. A fabric corner sofa in a darker shade could fit the bill or a sofa with storage, ideal for quickly storing the inevitable plethora of toys which tend to make a daily appearance!

 

Family Room Ideas

Decorating a family room is a chance to inject some real colour into your home – whether it’s through your furniture, your wall colour (washable paint could come in handy here) or the artwork you place on them. Don’t be afraid to be adventurous, with brightly coloured sofas (but it’s definitely worth considering the darker shades to cover any potential spills!) and your children’s artwork on the walls. If you do decide to go for a lighter coloured sofa, a textured throw would be well worth investing in and some bright cushions would add a colourful pop to your room.

If you have the space for a den or a children’s play area, why not add some flair to your room with a mini tepee? Guaranteed to keep the kids entertained for hours and the perfect place to put the toys at the end of the day. A tepee is a stylish, creative way of providing a space that’s just for them.

 

Storage Solutions

Where there are children, there tend to be toys. Lots of them. And for those who like to see a tidy room at the end of the day, storage is an absolute must. Luckily, these days there are plenty of options which don’t detract from the look and feel of a room – from a sofa with storage to grey felt storage boxes and wicker baskets, storage solutions can actually enhance the aesthetics of your room.
