Creating a homely vibe to your abode is absolutely imperative! When you finally settle down in the family room with your husband, siblings, children, relatives…you need to feel that sense of comfort, ease, relief and most of all that feeling of belonging somewhere. A home is supposed to feel like that to everyone. There are of course memories and moments that trigger this feeling but above all the decoration and placement of furniture in a home helps provide this sense of comfort too.
There are numerous family room design ideas with fireplace you can take inspiration from like these:
Sectional Sofas with Many Cushions
Nothing screams comfort more than multiple cushions and pillows on your couch. But a couch is too small and a sofa is smaller! Opt for a sectional sofa or even two to fill up the empty space in your family room. Add a few more plush chairs and sofas to fill up the empty spaces and go crazy with the cushions.
Sliding Glass Doors
A family room is incomplete without an outside view to your garden or whatever your house overlooks. Sunlight and warmth can also creep into the room during lazy Sunday mornings. You can also choose tinted windows or horizontal blinds on your glass doors.
Fireplace w/ TV Screen
When installing a fireplace in your family room you of course want it to be the top attraction and focus of attention but installing a TV as well in the room and keeping it adjacent to the fireplace creates a very homey and cozy look. Nothing beats a horror movie in the month of October with the fireplace blazing and you’re nestled on the couch with your family members.
