Great Family Room Potential - Design + Kid Friendly Sofas?

6 years ago

Hi there,

My family and I are moving into a home and it has a great family room with tons of potential. I think with a little paint and the right decor, this room could look cozy and much more modern.

These are the changes I'm considering:

1. Painting the bookcases white + new hardware for bottom row


2. whitewashing the fireplace.

3, Walls and trim painted white

4. I'll need new window treatments

5. furniture (maybe a sectional and two arm chairs or two sofas?, large round storage ottoman (as coffee table)

I imagine our family will spend a lot of time in this room and we'll have a TV and play area for our son. I'd gladly take any design suggestions and I'd especially love to know your suggestions for kid friendly but good looking sofas (features like leather bc it's wipeable and more resistant to spills or slip covers that can be thrown into the wash easily etc).

The pictures below are from when the previous homeowners lived there.

I'd love to hear your ideas, thanks in advance!
