9 Decorations for the Family Room

The family room is a place where everyone can get together and talk and play games. It’s a room that deserves some decoration because you’ll probably spend a lot of time there.

Vinyl

Vinyl is a great way to decorate. You could put up a favorite quote, a decorative script of your last name, or just a fun design. Vinyl is a great an inexpensive option to decorate with. It even works well for smaller rooms because it can go on the wall and take up no extra space.

Wooden Letters

Wooden letters and shapes can be a fun way to add personality to the room. You can get holiday-themed blocks or a fun wooden block calendar. The calendars are fun because you or your kids get to update it each day. You can make your own wooden letters and shapes or you could order some off of thoughtsinvinyl.com.

Mirrors

Mirrors are very classy decorations. They are simple but make a statement. A mirror hung on the wall is fun because it reflects the beautiful room it’s in, and that adds to the beauty of the room by doing so. They also work well to reflect and light and brighten a room. They can also help a room appear larger.

Pictures

Pictures are a classic family room decoration. It’s the family room so it’s the perfect spot to showcase your family. A scenic painting also looks great. Or even abstract and modern paintings can add some personality and fun decor.

Throw Pillows

Throw pillows can help a boring couch look classier or more fun. They can be used to add a pop of color to the room. Throw pillows can be mixed and matched to create lots of different looks. It’s even fun to add a throw blanket draped over the couch to really establish the color scheme.

Instruments

A more unique decoration would be decorating with instruments. I love music and play the piano and cello. I see the piano as one of the major decorations of my family room. I also display my cello and wooden music stand as decorations that show my love of music. It’s great when you can use decorations that demonstrate your personality and interest.

Lamps

Lamps are very useful decorations. They add an element of light while making a fun statement. You could use floor lamps or desk lamps. Personally, I love how a solid desk lamp looks. I think it adds elegance and charm to a room.

Metal Artwork

Metal artwork is beautiful. Place one on a wall and it adds instant class. I like metal artwork because of its solid look. It makes a bold statement and can become the focal point of the room.

Curtains

There are windows with blinds and then there are windows with curtains. Curtained windows really pull together a room. There are so many different looks you can achieve with a curtain. You could do sheer, heavy, window length, floor length, anything could work to create your perfect look.
