Check out Brody Hutzler’s five decorating ideas for small family rooms that will help them seem larger, and help them function more effectively.

1. Go Vertical.

Living Room Tips

While you may not have a lot of floor space in your family room, if you’re fortunate enough to have high ceilings, there’s a lot of design potential!

2. Create Storage Space.

Living Room Tips

Custom built-in millwork can create functional storage spaces out of the most awkward or underused nooks.

3. Add a Sofa Table.

Living Room Tips

Pulling your sofa out from the wall just a few inches will allow for a slender console table (around 6-8″ deep) to slide in. A traditional console table.

4. Introduce a Small Desk.

Living Room Tips

A family room often has to double as an office or homework zone. If you’re able to float your sofa in the middle of the room (or at the very least, around 60″ out from the wall) you can carve out a small workspace behind it with a slender desk and chair. Just try not to get too distracted while working since you’ll likely be facing the TV!

5. Go Monochromatic.

Living Room Tips

Keeping your furniture, flooring, and wall color in the same color family helps the eye to move continuously around the space without visual interruptions, creating the illusion of a larger room.
