Sectionals are great for a family room

There is something magical about a family room. The room that brings family and friends together, it is a place where everyone feels comfortable and welcomed. It is also the room where you will be in entertaining guests for most of their visit; thus, it is vital that you create the perfect look for your family room. But where do you start? 

With our tips.

Follow our simple-yet-effective tips below, and create a family room that you will be complimented on for years to come.

Find the focal point of the room

This cabinet raise snd lowers your television. Great way to save space.

Creating the perfect family room begins with finding the focal point of the room. If you have a television in the room, it is almost a certainty that this is the room’s focal point. Alternatively, you may solely have a fireplace or even an aquarium in the room with the television in the living room.

Whatever your case may be, place your largest piece of furniture opposite the room’s focal point (about 8-12 feet away). This will allow you to appropriately entertain guests while in the room. If you have smaller furniture (i.e. a recliner, smaller chairs) that have always acted as ‘extensions’ to your largest piece of furniture, consider facing those opposite of the focal point as well (more on those in a moment).

Make conversations happen

This fireplace is a full entertainment unit. It is a bar and bluetooth compatible for all your music needs.

Great conversations occur in family rooms as well. When you decide to turn off the television or you want to get lost in a conversation with the glow of your fireplace and/or aquarium lighting the room, your room will need an area designed solely for maximizing conversation. If you already have smaller furniture that acts as extensions to your sofa as mentioned in the above, simply arrange the smaller furniture in a horseshoe shape near the sofa. It’s a perfect addition for those that want to have a separate conversation in the family room.

If you don’t have enough furniture to work with, consider purchasing 2-3 smaller chairs; just be sure the upholstery allows the furniture to blend in with the rest the family room.  

Bookshelves are a must

Nothing says ‘family room’ quite like bookshelves. Consider placing a few bookshelves along one of the walls of the room. If you do not have enough books to fill up more than one bookshelf – that’s okay! Bookshelves are perfect for storing games, family heirlooms and photos, films, or anything else that is decorative and offers entertainment. Bookshelves are a funny thing: they can make a house feel like ‘home,’ and allow your guests to feel comfortable and welcomed. 

With these tips, we guarantee you will also make your family room feel like ‘home.’ Follow our tips to bring out the best in your family room, and ensure that you create moments with your friends and family that will last a lifetime.
