A family room is a unique part of a household, one that sets the tone for the entire house. Unlike a bedroom, the family room is both a general room for the entire family and the primary point of contact with house guests. This demands attractive and modern furniture, in order to produce an environment conducive to enjoyment of the family and guests alike.
Fortunately, with a variety of well designed and attractive furniture designs, Viesso can ensure that the family room is a well-designed and attractive house location, whether it is set in a new home or is part of an older house. In addition, with a number of custom options available, Viesso can assist the purchaser in devising a family room that is not simply a variation of other designs, but something that allows him or her to put a personal touch on the room’s design.
Family Room Furniture: Setting the Mood
When creating a family room, the first question that should be asked is what type of mood or impression is desired. Is the desired impression best given by a minimalist design, with understated furniture setting off a largely open floor? Alternatively, is the intent to create a more comfortable, intimate setting with a number of couches and chairs set close to each other, perhaps by the fireplace, if the room boasts one. These will help define the look and feel of the furniture to be placed in the room.
In addition, the primary purpose of the room should be considered. In many cases, the family room is the center of the house’s social life, and this will impact the style of furniture that best contributes to the desired impression. A family room designed around a home entertainment system, for example, will make use of couches and chairs oriented to provide comfortable and long-term viewing pleasure for family members and guests alike.
An equally important question is the age and composition of the family. For example, A retired couple will have radically different needs than a single professional will. In addition, a family with children will have to take their desires into account, as well as their age and friends. Younger children may require furniture that is both child-friendly and easy to clean when the unavoidable mishaps and spills occur. Older children will of course desire to have their own friends over, and this may require some adjustment to the family room layout, or the inclusion of extra chairs or couches to accommodate them.
No matter the intended effect, an effective setting requires a theme. Simply scattering furniture of different designs around the room will leave the family room without any distinguishing character, which is why it is important to select furniture that will fit in not simply with the room, but complement the rest of the furniture.
Placing Family Room Furniture
When setting up the family room, the placement of the furniture is a vital decision. The placement of the furniture helps control the flow of people through the room, which in turn helps reinforce the desired theme of the room.
For example by placing couches and chairs along the perimeter of the family room, facing inward, the attention of both guests and family members is directed inward and towards each other. This helps create a conversational mood, where guests and family can easily see and talk to each other. Adding small tables makes family room ideal for an informal get together over drinks and snacks.
On the other hand, a room oriented around a home entertainment system will have a different focus. Here, the chairs and couches should be oriented so that all guests and family members have an unobstructed and comfortable view of the screen. In other cases, especially for homes that make use of interactive entertainment and computer games, the furniture should be placed to maximize the ability of guests to participate. This is especially important for homes with teenaged children, who often have a large circle of friends.
Custom Furniture with Viesso
Not all family rooms are equal and especially in older houses, a room may be oddly shaped or sized, making it difficult to place or effectively match stock furniture with the room’s decor. Fortunately, Viesso has a wide range of customized furniture that can be used to effectively compensate for unusual family room designs.
