A great room can accommodate guests in a group or small seating areas for one-on-one conversations.

For homes in which families entertain frequently, the addition of a great room is an ideal space where guests can move about and socialize easily.

But while large furnishings can be chosen to fill a great room, care needs to be taken to provide clusters of seating that will allow one-on-one conversations and room for a larger groups as well. Sofas, a dining area with a table and combinations of soft seating with end tables all will achieve this goal.

According to the Boston Globe magazine, several furniture pieces in the same style can be spread throughout the room, while rugs in different areas can be the same color but in varied patterns to provide a pulled-together look across the expanse of a great room.

Bringing in enough natural light to such a space can be a challenge, and window treatments should be chosen to fit different functions in the room. With colors chosen to tie in areas intended for activities and quieter corners that are meant for relaxation, the choice of window blinds or shades can address lighting issues and unify the space. Buying custom blinds online provides homeowners with a wide selection of colors and finishes.
