Design ideas for living areas, family, rumpus and toy rooms
These rooms are the hub of the home. Depending upon their age, family members assemble here to meet, talk, relax, debate, play games and much more.
Living and rumpus rooms usually contains a comfy lounge, a TV and stereo system and a place for kids to play their PlayStation/x box or current computer game. These rooms are 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 and where you are most likely to find your kids and their friends. Furthermore, it is generally is fitted out with easy care finishes such as tile or timber floors.
Families with young children are trending towards dedicated toy rooms, especially if the home is an open plan. They want a space to close off the mess to visitors and yet not disturb their child’s latest creation.
Furniture can be challenging
The irony of these rooms is that furniture layouts are often tricky as they are the hub and are the conduit to other rooms in the home. For this reason, it is essential to consider adequate storage, power points and lighting, along with furniture placement and floor treatments.
