Since togetherness is the focus of a family room, a media center shouldn’t have to be the focus of the room. It’s suggested to eliminate the existence of media center and replace it with a creativity center. Consider going unplugged instead and providing ample play space for games and puppet shows.

Idea Two: Transform Unused Space At Home

If you have an unused space at home, rather than making it as a garage or warehouse, you can use it as a fun family room. For example is idea from the picture. Once this small building was, literally, for the birds. It was a pigeon coop, abandoned long ago, and it was falling to the ground. But it sat at the end of the lawn and screened a view of the neighbors’ yards. The family wanted a play area for the kids, so it made sense to save it. Now there’s room to relax on a daybed with a book, draw on a chalkboard, or play at a kid size table.

Family room ideas aren’t always be indoor, creating outdoor family space is also a nice option. From the picture, you can get idea by turning a sloped plot into a modern play den. You can place concrete planters along the sidewalk, and filled them with ‘Firebird’ phormiums to create friendly screening without totally blocking off the yard. The raised patio is edged with concrete to help level the area and create a flat lawn and distinct spots for the family to dine, entertain, and play.

To get a comfortable family room, avoid to design an usual room; make it as the most special and unique room in the house. For example all-white walls and moldings form a neutral backdrop for contemporary furnishings, finishes, and fixtures. The contrast enlivens this comfortable family space.

Whatever family room ideas are placed both outdoor and indoors, the room should be able to encourage and tighten the togetherness between all family members.
