Amanda Forrest provides tips on how to dress up your family room.
Create Inviting Furniture Arrangements: Family rooms are about bringing people together, when planning seating consider how many people there are in your family.
Think safety: Round corners, upholstered ottomans and furniture anchors all help to keep the space safe for young family members to enjoy.
Use durable materials: Let your furniture work for you! Choose durable fabrics and forgiving table tops and area rugs so you don't have to stress about the pieces.
Invest in built in cabinetry: This will allow you to customize storage and add an architectural element.
Personalize the space: Have family photos blown up to poster size, use children drawings as art, display family heirlooms on bookshelves.
