Create a Relaxing Retreat within Your Home

Posted by admin in Furniture and Fixture, House and Home, House Tips on 13-11-2017

The kitchen may be the heart of the home, but the family room is where everyone goes at the end of the day to relax and recover from the trials of the day. Unfortunately this can lead to a room that is almost always cluttered and overcrowded. That’s not exactly a relaxing environment. Return your family room to an indoor retreat by following the tips below.


Every member of the family uses this room. Toys are left scattered about, video games have the TV buried, and magazines, books, blankets, and pillows are thrown everywhere. Walking into this mess is anything but relaxing. Gather up the toys and place them in bins that are easy enough for the smallest children to handle. Gaming consoles can be kept in a designated area, and the game cartridges can be stacked in a basket. Baskets also make nice magazine racks. Get everyone in the habit of putting throws and pillows back in place when done using them.

Add Personality

Once the clutter is gone, you may still find the room to feel uncomfortable. Family photos are an excellent way to add warmth to a room as well as a touch of personality. Be creative in how they are displayed. Use matching frames in various places or paint mismatched frames all in the same color for a more unifying effect. Printing all of the pictures in a sepia tone is another way to make them uniquely stand out.

New Furniture

If all else fails, you may want to consider adding some new furniture pieces. An entertainment center will help with the clutter as well as bring a fresh new look to the space. When replacing a sofa, chairs, or other large pieces, check out collections such as Donny Osmond Home from retailers like Kerby’s Furniture. Even one new item can transform the look a room.

A little de-cluttering, a touch of personality, and possibly some new furniture will bring your family room back to its original glory. It may take a little time and hard work, but the reward is an inviting room where every member of the family can go at the end of the day to relax and unwind.
