Modern Family Room Design
Many of my clients are families looking to create more functional spaces for everyone to enjoy. One of these rooms is the Family Room! Striking the right balance between function and a space looking good can be difficult, especially for a family room. In this Shop the Look feature I’m sharing my top tips on how you can create a modern family room design that doesn’t compromise on functionality!
How to Recognize a Modern Family Room
Typically, a modern family room will have furniture that features simple and linear silhouettes. Coupled with textiles and accessories to emphasize comfort. These family rooms are likely to have large sectional sofas upholstered in leather or a durable fabric. Soft lighting, or s flexible lighting scheme will also be installed here.
A modern family room design doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have a large sectional sofa if this doesn’t suit your needs or space. You can create a modern family room with standard sofas and armchairs if you have one main living area of the home. However, you should choose a style that features a deeper seat and consider whether a chaise would be beneficial for you. Use upholstered poufs or ottomans to supplement the room with more seating.
Family rooms have become more and more popular over the last 10-20 years as an in-between living room and cinema room. It is typically a space where all the family can gather comfortably and enjoy watching movies, TV shows, or playing in a comfortable space that isn’t the main or formal living room. The design of family rooms tends to be more relaxed than a living room as the focus gets put on comfort and functionality more so than looks.
This style often includes:
- Large and deep sectional sofas
- Accessories that bring texture and warmth
- Soft and flexible lighting
- Television for watching TV shows and movies
