Family Rooms can be classy and comfortable at the same time.
Want to cozy up your space with more than a paint color? Choose a neat area rug to anchor your seating. Consider some of these trendy, plush shags, great for a contemporary setting. Rugs are a smart way to introduce color, texture and pattern into your Family Rooms space.
Depending on the size of your family rooms, pick furniture that fits both scale and comfort.
If you have a large family rooms space, choose sectionals that are curved, or L-shaped for a more modern look. Consider modular sectionals that can be moved around to create various seating arrangements and include pieces that function as additional seating, such as large, square ottomans. These pieces can also play duty as a coffee table.
Consider pieces with hollow interiors that can be used for storage of extra pillows, throws, blankets or even your DVD collection. Think of how multi-functional your pieces can be for this multi-functional room.
Choose seating with a comfortable finish and a casual style. Micro-fiber and micro-suedes have been popular choices for Family Rooms but leather is my preference. Consider ultra-soft, smooth leather finishes that you can sink into. They wear well, get better with age and always look presentable for company with a few, straightened-up pillows.
