Your Comfort Zone

by Jennifer Staggs-Manley, Interior Decorator, Decorating Den Interiors

Family rooms, by their very name are for the family!  And when most of us think of family, we think of relaxation and fun, as well as informal settings for carefree entertaining.  This is a room in which we can truly “let our hair down”.  It demands space for our hobbies, be they reading, watching TV or game playing.  It also calls for some imaginative planning, so all members of the family feel that this is truly “their” room.

Here are some tips you might consider in furnishing your family room.

1.    Look for large or small tables, perhaps folded or stacked to allow you the opportunity to increase table space.
2.    Ping Pong, pool, and air hockey games are a welcomed addition to this room.  Of course, having the proper space is a requirement of the type of game you select.
3.    An entertainment center to house your TV, DVD and music system is a must.  Entertainment centers offer you a place for everything.
4.    Comfort is KEY in the selection of your upholstered furniture pieces – cushy deep seats – large and oversized are a most welcome retreat.
5.    A game table may also be an important addition to this room – be sure to allow for adequate lighting when you select its place in your room.
6.    Keep the colors bright, inspiring and fun. You can take more risks when it comes to paint colors. Be adventurous, go bold!

Careful planning of your family room is a must.  Be sure to make a list of all the activities and functions that the room will encompass.  This is a great opportunity to get the kids involved. They will most likely be using the room most, so let them make some of the decisions.
