A welcoming family room is one of the most sought after renovations and designs that homeowners are seeking. An open, welcoming space that is inviting, warm and equally ideal for family movie night or your next big party is the goal. What does it take to make this area a relaxing and comfortable space? Start To Finish Construction in Kelowna has some inspiring ideas to help you create your new favourite room.
Enjoy Your Okanagan View
We are lucky to thrive in the gorgeous Okanagan Valley. Sweeping hills, expansive orchards and of course, the variety of lakes in our region offer world-class viewing potential. How efficient and expansive are your current windows? Would a new patio door and deck off your family room help you take in more nature and natural light? Windows and patio doors are a huge component of your family room design. Bring the outdoors in and let us help you celebrate your view.
Home Theatre Inspiration
If you enjoy watching movies, home videos and playing video games, what better place to come together with family and friends then in your new home theatre inspired family room? Recessed lighting, dimmer switches and comfy seating go a long way to creating the escape everyone craves. Create more floor space by opting for a sectional couch and maximize your comfort with some reclining pieces to ensure maximum viewing potential.
If sitting around a crackling fire is on your list of things to do this winter, we can help! Start To Finish Construction can ensure that your new or existing wood-burning or gas fireplace is correctly installed and up to code. Roast hotdogs and marshmallows from the comfort of your own hearth if you desire. Perhaps, you can opt for a 2-way fireplace that can be enjoyed from the kitchen and the family room or the family room and the Master Bedroom. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination!
Open Flow Concept
Many older homes are stricken with separated rooms and unnecessary walls. If your family room feels tight or closed off from the kitchen, we can look at the possibility of removing some drywall and adding some beams to help you achieve the open-concept vibe you are seeking. This is a great way to allow family and friends to enjoy food in the kitchen while still being able to participate in the family room conversations, games and shows.
Games, Reading, Relaxing
Ample and adequate seating and lighting are essential in your new family room. Having the flexibility to study, read or play board games is vital. Washable fabrics, durable flooring and easy-to-clean rugs are great options to consider. Built-in desks and library shelving offer usable, functional multi-purpose areas within your redesign. We understand that not everyone wants to have their family room evolve around the TV. If you prefer to have this item strategically hidden away…we can do that! In fact, we can do pretty much anything! Call Start To Finish Construction today and let’s get down to determining the features that will help you create the perfect family room that everyone in your family will enjoy flocking to.
