Family rooms can be a breeding ground for clutter and chaos. Take charge and redesign your family room using these ideas to create a practical and design-savvy room.
The Work Area: A well-lit area is the perfect place for children to do homework or work on a project.
Chalkboard Wall: Better than artwork, a chalkboard wall is constantly changing and can be used for ideas for outings and friendly reminders to children and parents.
Creative Use of Space: Shelving under a TV provides easy access to games, toys, and books.
Versatile Ottoman: Ottomans provide storage, serving areas, and extra seating. In this case, the four units pull apart and can be placed where needed.
Play With Fabrics: With so many fabrics to choose from, you no longer have to sacrifice style when selecting a durable fabric. Mixing textures and patterns that complement each other will create an interesting and fun family room.
Hooks on The Wall: Organize coats and backpacks. Place a storage bench/seat underneath for easy access to seasonal items.
Hang It Up: Create a gallery wall using family memorabilia. Hang Mom’s frames, paintings or mirrors that used to hang in the family home for a personalized gallery wall.
Double Duty: Upholstered ottomans are great to use in a family room as they are soft to the touch and create additional seating when watching TV.
