10 Family Room Design and Decor Ideas

1) A homey theatre-inspired family room

Movie night with the family is what is it all about? Here is a great example of a dream family room for all cinephiles. The room’s design is centred around a flat-screen television and a large couch on which the entire family can sit comfortably.

Featured on the back wall is a storage area for records and DVDs that could easily be converted into a bookcase when these mediums are no longer available. Although the room features a dim ambiance and is less versatile than most of the other designs featured in this article, it is nonetheless a standout!

A theatre-inspired family room sparked a little joy in you? Run with it!

2) A well-light room with plenty of seating space!

Make a radical change with a well-light family room that is perfectly suited for a big family considering the number of people it can accommodate. The cold colour scheme aside, the room is welcoming due to its decorative aspects like the curtains, the throw pillows, and the large windows showcasing the beautiful landscape. 

Overall, the room is tranquil and the ideal space in which you will want to get together at the end of the week for some much-needed family time. 

3) A contemporary family room

Are you a fan of contemporary styles and designs with hints of mid-century modern? Although this style is not as kid-friendly, if sophisticated chic is what you are looking for, why not?

The far wall console is custom-made for the space, as for the rest of the room, it is mainly taken up by the large plush sectional couch. This room can easily be recreated in any space with similar dimensions. 

4) A cozy basement family room

If the ideal space for your family room is in the basement, but you worry the space might be a bit too dark, here is a great example of a bright and inviting room. As shown, the family room has been set up in the basement, but blending the colours, the light fixtures and the decorative accessories, allows for an enjoyable space.

5) A family living room at the heart of the house

This family room is at the heart of the house, easily becoming the focal point for everyone. And, with 3 separate couches, to each their own. Incorporating different materials is always compelling, especially by contrasting contemporary and classic styles.

And lastly, the large windows open up on the exterior terrace adding another exciting spot to get together with the whole family!

6) A room with a unique colour scheme for the whole family

Here is another basement family room. This room is large and the epicentre of comfort! With multiple couches, wall-to-wall carpet, and plush throw pillows, there is everything you need for some quality rest and relaxation. 

Seeing a mounted television is just not doing it for you? No worries! You can shield it from view behind sliding barn-house doors. This large space is kid-friendly, and an ideal space for them to play and run, worry-free. 

7) A small, atypically-decorated family room

By now, you have seen numerous large-scale family rooms, but we are highly aware that not everyone has a room of that scale available to them. Here is an example of a smaller-scale family room. 

The layout of this space is very cozy and has been optimized. As shown, the owners have opted for a sectional couch, which is ideal when wanting to draw every family member to one specific area. 

8) A colourful family room perfect for art lovers

Here is one of the most striking family rooms for those who have an eye for pretty things! Even if you have kids, you can still adorn the room with quality vases on higher shelves, thus ensuring they will not be broken. The built-in bookcases are rather nice and useful, and the other furniture pieces make for a well-balanced space. 

9) A TV-less family room with a fireplace and lush greenery!

Here is another example of a smaller-scale family room. This room embraces its space with lots of furniture, accessories of all kinds, and a large carpet. If you are more of a minimalist, this room might not be your cup of tea, however, for those who are rather charmed with welcoming and cozy layouts, this one is for you!

10) A well-lit contemporary TV room

Lastly, yet another custom-made console that can be fitting with your preferences and decor ideas. The shelves can also be filled with toys, records, or books!

Although the room is on the smaller side, the wood-accented decor rectifies this shortcoming allowing for a timeless decor that is easily redesigned based on individual needs and preferences.
