As the days get shorter and the nights get longer and while we all spend more time at home, having an inviting family room has become integral. Creating a space to decompress at the end of the day and enjoy time with your loved ones has never been more important. Below are the key pieces we feel will help to create the ultimate hibernation station:
-The hub of the home! Whether your space can house a large sectional or just a single sofa, take your time and invest in a quality piece. Take measurements of your space, pictures, and browse the style options that are available. Allow one of your design consultants to assist you with your floor plan and optimize seating with the best configuration. Next choose a durable and comfortable fabric in a colour that will set the tone for the space.
-Table Talk. Next you will need to select a coffee table. Do you want to add a bit of gilded brass? Warm wood? Is storage a priority? Or would you prefer to have a large upholstered ottoman? There are endless options and it can become a bit overwhelming. Enlist the help of a design professional, think about your lifestyle and finally choose a piece you love!
-A perfect accent. If your space allows room for an accent chair, this is a great opportunity to add a pop of colour, pattern or a fun silhouette.
-Layers of warmth. A family room is not complete without a cozy area rug. A common design mistake is choosing a rug that is too small. Ideally, all main furniture pieces should be on the area rug. This helps anchor the space and helps tie the whole room together.
-Set your room apart with art. Wall decor will help inject the space with colour, personality and a fun focal point.
-Light it up! Add table and floor lamps to create a cozy ambiance.
-The finishing touches. Bar carts, poufs, and etageres are all great additions to a family room. Focus on your families hobbies and what will be the most functional for your lifestyle.
