What Houzz contributors are saying:
Don’t go wild with the television. Keep the television size under control. “Too large, and it can throw off the scale of everything in the room,” says O’Donovan. “I wouldn’t go much larger than a 32-inch."
A family room. If you have a more traditional home that consists of a formal living room, dining room and kitchen on the first floor, you may be longing for a casual family room. The attic may be the answer. Bring up comfortable furnishings and a television for movies, and say hello to lots of relaxing weekend afternoons.
The attic. The attic is not just for storage. It can be transformed into a snug living space (even more snug if you're lucky enough to have sloped ceilings). It may be a bit of a project, but it's worth it. Outfit it with a fireplace (consider a fake one if a real one isn't possible), a shag rug and comfy furniture, and voila — it's chic, cozy and more room for living!
Don’t forget the attic! These spaces are no longer for storage: by adding skylights and brightening it with white paint, this room becomes both cozy and sophisticated. By outfitting it with a sink and mini fridge, it becomes perfect for game time.
