As it gets more chilly, even frigid, up here, are you looking for ways to make a room cozier?
Looking to revamp your family room, for example, into a place that exudes style and ultimate comfort? Here are a few of our tried and true tips.
1. Take a rustic and minimalist approach to design and decor
Rustic accents and decorations have a way of making a living space feel warm and inviting. Wood, stone and similar textiles can create the ideal atmosphere for the family room — keep this in mind when choosing furniture and smaller details. When it comes to decor, a minimalist approach will keep this room from feeling cluttered and make it easier for guests to settle in and relax.
2. Make seating your top priority
The family room should be exactly what its name implies — a room where family and friends can gather together and embrace each other’s presence. Optimal seating is great for giving everyone a place to get comfortable and wind down. Consider a cozy sectional with additional seating for large gatherings.
If you’re looking for non-traditional seating options, try a conversation circle
3. Emphasize the fireplace
A fireplace and large mantel are two home features that any homeowner can feel lucky to have. If you happen to have this set up in your family room, make use of it. I have different mantel decorations for just about every month of the year. And this feature isn’t only aesthetically pleasing — it can also be a great source of heat on a chilly fall day.
4. Consider mood lighting
Lighting can make or break the vibe in any living space. When you think about the kitchen or office area, you want ample lighting to get work done. In cozier spaces, like the bedroom or family room, lighting should be softer. Consider dimming features in your tableside lamps and sconces to create a cozy fall feel with ease.
