Comfort is key when updating your family room
Revamping your living room to create a space that is both comfortable and fashionable is a hard thing to do. You'll need to make sure there is enough seating for your family and guests as well as keep things simple and easy to organize.

House Beautiful compiled a list of their favorite styles for family rooms to give you examples of fabulous spaces that are kid-friendly and grown-up approved. One of the most popular trends throughout each design is the use of oversized furniture. If your walls are neutral colored, choose fun patterns or a bright design for your couch as a way to spruce up the room. Find a unique coffee table - an old chest, or one made from refurbished barn wood, for example - as a way to bring a bit of shabby-chic to your home. This will help further foster a laid-back vibe, which is a must in a family room setting.

Updating your window treatments is another easy fix that can transform your look in no time. Roller up blinds or roller shades may work best as you can choose from numerous styles and fabrics that will easily match your overall style.

Finish up by adding personal touches and trinkets to create a room that is both functional and inviting.
