Add a Family Room to Extend the Functionality of Your Home


Every family gathering entails people spread out between your kitchen, living room, and dining area, because there just isn’t enough space for you all to be in one room. Does this sound familiar? How about the fact that you cannot enjoy your living room whenever you want to, because your children are in there with their friends all the time?

Custom Whole Home Remodel
If you have experienced something like this, then it might be time for you to add a family room to extend the functionality of your home. After all, the new space would add square footage to your home, which will increase your home’s value and give you the room to entertain family and friends.

Our experienced designer and contractor will be able to work with you to find the best place to put your new addition. We will also be able to construct it so that it matches the exterior as well. The only limitations that you will have are space for the new addition and your budget.

As you are designing your new family room addition, you will be able to turn it into the space of your dreams. You will need to determine if you want one large room or if you want to divide the room into sections, so that multiple people can enjoy it at once.

Here are 5 options for your family room:

  1. Every family room needs a focal point, so you will want to choose one that matches your dream space. Most people will choose a fireplace; however, others will choose a bar that people can congregate around.
  2. Most family rooms have a television, so that everyone can watch a show or movies together. You can have this as a main focal point of the room as well and place chairs and couches nearby. Request that this particular room have its own breaker in the electrical box so you don’t have to worry about stressing the electrical system or popping breakers when you turn on the mixer in the kitchen while the home theater system is in use.
  3. If you have smaller children, you may want to spend time in the family room with them as they are playing. A small sitting area in the corner would work well for this and it can be a place where you can sit and relax while reading or doing another small project.
  4. Many family rooms are also the play room and you may want to place this space off to one side and away from other areas.
  5. Your children will love to use this space if their video game systems are set up and ready to use and then you can reclaim your living room.

As soon as your family room is completed, you will wonder how you lived so long without the additional space inside your home. You will finally have the room to entertain like you want and everyone in your family will have a place to go. However, you may find that you love this new space so much that you may not want to share it with your children. You may want them to stay in the living room, so that you can spend some alone time in your new family room.
