It seems cliché to state that the heart is located in our home. Whether you believe it or not many people consider their home as the safest and coziest place. It is filled with a lot of love, memories and life. Whether you live alone or with family, the house should be the source of cheer and joy. If you are looking for family room decorating ideas which can increase the homey ambiance, focus more on the pictures, comfortable seating, and accessories.
The wall is a blank space that you can decorate with the personal pictures and photos. You can create a sense of nostalgic by having the family’s mementos and personal memories. If you keep the family room wall in a plain white color without any pictures, it will remind the people with the hospital or sterile rental room. Pick a theme for the wall pictures. If you want to enjoy modern family room design, set several black and white family pictures.
The comfortable seating makes all members in the family stay any longer in the room. You can purchase the fluffy and comfortable couch, recliners and armchairs. It is okay to put a heavy couch if you have a very large family room decoration. The family room will be more inviting if you can place enough seats for all people. You can put a flexible sectional sofa set which can be configured based on the available space and number of people. Then you can spread some toss pillows on the sofa. If the sofa is upholstered in neutral color, choose the printed or bold colored throw pillows which can add a burst of style.
The last thing to consider is the lighting system. During the day, you can save the electricity bill by having the family room illuminated from the sunlight. Open the windows and maintain the privacy by having a neutral colored floral sheer curtain. When the dark hours come, turn on the lamp. There are several types of lighting fixtures for family room. The functional and ambient ones should be available. The modern recessed lighting can illuminate the entire family room, while a track lighting and a sleek floor lamp is perfect to set the mood.
