Updating The Family Room

One of the most important spaces in your home is the family room. It is here where you welcome guests and relax with family. A functional, well-designed family room is an essential component of any home, and an interior designer can transform your outdated room into something comfortable, welcoming and uniquely you.

When you first meet with a member of the design team, you will want to share your vision for the room. This includes providing a few examples of the types of rooms that you love. Be sure to include information about how you will be using this room. Do you love to entertain? Do you have children or pets or both? All of this is crucial information for the designer.

One of the reasons why hiring a designer can be a great option is because they can help make sure that your new family room still complements the rest of your home’s interior. Creating a flow from room to room truly gives your house a more polished look.

Your designer will discuss many aspects of design during the course of the project. You will be discussing possible choices for wall colors, window treatments, furnishings and flooring. In addition, lighting, storage needs and accents will be discussed to come up with a complete design plan.

Generally, when designing the family room, the emphasis tends to be on comfort, but that doesn’t mean that your family room can’t have a bit of elegance, as well. While you want to be able to relax in this room, a comfortable couch and chairs can be covered with elegant, sophisticated fabrics for that upscale look you crave.

At Interior Affairs, our experienced design team begins the design process by visiting you and getting to know you, your needs and the scope of the project. From there, we will present you with a detailed preliminary plan for your personal design. After discussing the project further, a final design will be created and we can begin transforming your house into your dream home.
