Depending upon the age of the occupants these rooms are becoming the hub of the home where the family meet to talk, argue and relax …
Living and rumpus rooms usually contains a comfy lounge, a TV and stereo system and a place for kids to play their playstations/x box or current computer game. It is often part of the kitchen or just off to the side but with easy access to food and refreshments.
This room is usually the space where everyone feels comfortable and not scared to touch and feel the elements that make up the room. It generally is fitted out with easy care finishes such as tile or timber floors.
This is where you are most likely to find your kids and their friends.
Clients with young children are trending towards dedicated toy rooms especially if the home is open plan. They want a room to be able to close the mess off to visitors, yet not disturb the latest creation of their child.
To this purpose the dining room is often converted as the formal dinner is generally a thing of the past for most families and the kids still feel close enough to the action.
Furniture can be challenging
The irony of these rooms is that furniture layouts are often difficult as they are the hub and as such are the conduit to other rooms in the home. To make these spaces effective, adequate storage, power points and lighting are key aspects to consider, along with furniture placement and floor treatments.
