Family Room Design Ideas

March 16, 2017

Is the design and mood of your family room one that invites you to put your feet up, settle in for a night of relaxing and hanging out with your family and friends?  The family room is the heart of the home. It is where everyone gathers to spend time together whether it is in front of a warm fireplace, in front of your favorite television show or to celebrate family milestones. If you are looking to take your family room from a more traditional feel to one that encourages family fun and activities then here are some tips for you.


  • Choose the Right Color Palette – If you are going for a hue that encourages family members to relax and feel comfortable, consider warm neutral shades that can not only coordinate with adjoining rooms but also allows for a wide variety of furnishings and artwork. Warm shades tend to be inviting and cozy while hues with cool undertones have a chic, modern vibe. Choose the color that sets the right mood and the tone you want to set for your family room.


  • Furnishings and Seating – If you are hoping to transform your family room into one that is inviting and where visitors will stay a while, choose furniture and seating that is comfortable and encourages people to relax. Arrange seating so that you are around a focal point like a large sofa or fireplace. Place ottomans near seating so that you are sending the message to kick up your feet and stay a while. Mix up shapes and sizes of seating but bring the design together with accent colors and fabric choices.


  • Display Your Personality – Once you have freshened up the walls with a color palette that you love, display your favorite artwork, keepsakes or family photos on the walls to make it feel homey. If you have a unique hobby or collection, showing it off in a family room will not only be a great discussion piece but will bring your hobby into the main living area.


  • Add Accent Colors – The color choice on your walls is not the only choice you will need to make in the room.  What color would you like to “pop” around the room?  Red for more a more eye catching statement, blues or soothing tones, or yellow for a splash of cheer? The choices are endless. Before you begin talk to our color consultant here at Jerry Enos Painting. We can help you make the choice that best sets the mood you are looking for in your family room.
