Your DDD Guide: Family Room Design

After the kitchen, the family room is one of the most popular and frequented rooms in the house. All the more reason to make your family room cozy for everyone!

But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style for comfort. Here's your Dallas Design District guide to making your family room just as visually pleasing as it is homey.


Variety is the spice of life, which can also be said for all the seating options out there to choose from. Give yourself, your family and your visitors plenty of choices when it comes to where (and how) they want to sit. With everything from a big comfy couch to a pouf, an armchair or even something fun like a living room hammock, you'll be sure to please everyone. Get the best sofa for you with a customized piece from Monarch Sofas.


Choosing the right fabrics for your living room can make the difference between a room that looks good for years and a room that looks good for weeks. If you have little ones and pets running around, be sure to choose fabrics with patterns to mask spills and matches fur. Also, don’t be afraid to go the slipcover route. If you’ve always dreamed of an all-white couch, a slipcover is easy to pull off and wash. Explore your fabric options at the Pindler showroom.


Family rooms are a little more casual than living rooms, so it’s a great space to have fun with colors. Bright, vibrant hue make a fun room for kids and kids at heart. Center the color palette around a colorful area rug or a collection of your children’s paintings. Adding plenty of color can also offset a space without much natural light. Find the perfect rug for your family room at The Rug Company.

Multi-purpose pieces

The family room is the perfect place to make use of multi-tasking furnishings. An ottoman can serve as a table and a seat as well as an ottoman. Bookshelves can display books, knick-knacks, family pictures or even toys. The room itself can also be a place for visiting, watching movies, listening to music or function as a play room for the kids.

With a little planning, you can create a stylish and comfortable family room for all to enjoy. And the shops and showrooms at the Dallas Design District are, as always, here to help you do just that.
