When you have a family, thereís many different needs and personalities at play within your home. Trying to please all of those different ways of life can cause some confusion. There are many ways that you can create an all-in-one space without creating a major construction zone. You need to think in terms of spaces that accommodate large groups of people from entertaining to gathering around the television for a movie or sporting event. Combine Several Rooms Into One When rooms arenít connected, sometimes bringing the rooms together can bring more flow into the home. Consider knocking down walls or bringing aspects of one room into another room, like a countertop or island through parts of kitchen and living spaces. Get creative! In some spaces, simply knocking down just one wall can make the entire floor of the home feel bigger. Make The Use Of The Square Footage You Have One wall can cause you to miss out on the full use of the space your home provides. Clearing away walls between rooms not only allows your home to feel more open and airy, but it gives you as a homeowner more use of your space. You donít always need to add on to your home in order to make the home feel bigger. Tuck Things Away Keeping stools under countertops, for example, is a great way to have a multi-use and multipurpose area. A television will be perfect in a cabinet. The cabinet can be used for both storage and TV viewing. Make sure you position it in a place where the TV can be seen from all corners of the room. This way everyone will have a space for their DVDs and thereís not a bad seat in the room to watch TV from. Use Furniture As Room Dividers Your furniture can multi-task by serving as a room divider. If you need to have a study in your living room, use a bookshelf to separate the area. Itís easy to do and will keep the flow of a room without disturbing your established setup. Use Rugs For Unity Nothing unifies a room quite like an area rug. Everything on or near the rug signifies a space. If you need to separate areas within the room, try an area rug for one purpose and hardwood, bare floor for the other use. Rugs are always cozy in reading rooms, for example. Hardwood floors may work better for a computer desk and rolling office chair. The position of everything in a room helps to identify what that part of the room will be used for. Marry The Rooms That Are Used Together If your family tends to hang out and use the kitchen and living room the most, make sure they have open space between them. You should consider adding a study for the students of the house in either room to make it easier to call everyone for dinner and provide homework help. As a bonus, itís a great idea that you can keep an eye on the kidsí computer activity while youíre cooking! Most of all, no matter what room youíre working with, you want to make sure thereís a space for everything and everyone. Thatís how you please an entire family with home design!

Bedrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You bedroom is more than a place for sleeping. They have become multi-purpose rooms over the years. Depending on your circumstances, bedrooms may need to house a home office, a playroom, or a tv and movie hub in addition to a bed. The most important role your bedroom plays is providing you with a good nightís rest. We have a bunch of different ideas here to help you maximize your space and style in the most comfortable way possible. Consider What The Space Will Be Used For Will your bedroom be used as a reading room? If so, you need to add a comfy chair to the space. If your bedroom has a multi-purpose as a home office, youíll need to add a comfy desk and chair to the room for your working hours. Plan the room around the pieces that must be in there. Many pieces of furniture can also be double purposed like a table that can also be used as a desk. Itís All In Where You Place Things The biggest decision that youíll need to make is where to put the furniture. If you place things strategically, youíll be able to fit everything you need in the room without sacrificing charm and style. Placing the bed near the windows is a great way to save space and let light in, since a bed wonít completely block the window. Add Your Character To The Space If your bedroom represents the things that you love, you canít go wrong in the space. While itís usually not recommended that we work and sleep in the same space, sometimes itís unavoidable. There are ways that you can separate the two worlds with a room screen, for example. Whatever your bedroom space is being used for, be sure to provide balance to the room. As long as an object is pleasing to you, you canít go wrong placing it in the bedroom. Think outside of the box with objects like benches, love seats and even antique radios. If you can use it and it makes you happy, thereís a way to make the object fit within the purpose of your bedroom. Lighting No matter what your bedroom will be used for, lighting is extremely important. Make sure that thereís lights near each side of the bed. These will be useful for many different things from early morning risers to reading in bed to night owls. Planning Makes The Process Smoother Remember that the most important thing that you can do for your bedroom furniture arrangement- or any room for that matter- is to plan. With careful measurements of the pieces that must go into the room and careful thought of what youíd like to go into the room, you can create the perfect bedroom.
