Is your family room feeling a bit cramped and disorganized? The key to designing a functional and comfortable living space includes durable materials, thoughtful details, and custom cabinets to keep clutter at bay. With that said, let’s delve a little deeper. Here are the three must-haves for a more functional family room.
A family room sees a lot of traffic. From active kids and their toys, to spilled drinks and pet messes, a truly family-friendly space requires family-friendly flooring. While hardwood floors are beautiful and wall to wall carpeting is cozy, neither are exactly practical. Instead, opt for easy to clean, durable tile or luxury vinyl flooring. These strong materials are resistant to water damage, dents and scratches, and will stand up to the everyday wear and tear your family can dish out. Some styles even realistically mimic the look of hardwood! To browse the beautiful flooring options from Willow lane Cabinetry, click here.
Speaking of durable materials, a family room needs to have comfortable furniture that can resist stains and tears. For sofas and chairs, opt for upholstery fabric that is easy to keep nice and clean. That delicate silk or linen may look lovely in the showroom, but give it a few weeks at home with Fido and the kids, and you may be regretting your decision. Instead, solid choices for a family room include faux suede, microfiber, distressed leather, indoor-outdoor fabrics, or washable cotton slipcovers, according to Architectural Digest. Other thoughtful details for a more functional family room include lighting, soft area rugs, throw pillows and blankets, window treatments, ottomans, end tables, and a sturdy coffee table.
