This bright and cheery family room is covered in high-energy hues, packed with pet-friendly materials and outfitted with clever storage solutions. From washable paint sheen on the walls to lightweight rustic table lamps, the space was designed to be durable, comfy and almost indestructible.
The homeowners wanted stylish, kid and pet friendly spaces in which guests wouldn't be afraid to put their feet up, so designers merged natural textures with durable fabrics to create a great living room to fit the family's needs.
Below the newly painted ceiling, a comfy sectional anchors the family room alongside an oversized ottoman. Durable upholstery and a soft area rug withstand the general wear and tear of a pet-friendly home.
If you can't keep the pets off the furniture, opt for durable and neutral upholstery that hides pet hair. Here, a golden retriever enjoys a nap on the London sofa from R. Jones. An orange and green quilt adds a touch of country charm to the farmhouse living room.
Bright-colored chairs and accessories liven up this kid-friendly living space. An area rug defines the sitting area, complete with a wall-mounted TV, while a nearby bookcase offers easily accessible storage and display space.
Bright White Living Room With Kid-Friendly Furniture
As the wall art suggests, this stylish space was designed for a young family living in a beachside community in Southern California. Because the room gets so much use, especially by kiddos who love to eat and play on the white sofas, Anthology Interiors outfitted the space with durable and washable materials.
There's no reason a kid friendly play space can't be stylish.
Bright, Kid-Friendly Living Room Perfect for Every Age
A play area on one half of this family room is perfect for keeping children entertained while adults can relax in the other half. A navy couch and brown leather chair contrast against the light yellow and white walls. A built-in fireplace with gray tile surrounds adds a great masculine detail to the design. Throw pillows, a blanket and fun wall art keep the space colorful.
This cozy living room is perfect for a family to settle in and enjoy. A large navy blue sectional provides plenty of room to stretch out. To keep things kid-friendly, designer Bailey Austin Bird used crypton fabrics throughout the room.
A wood coffee table from Restoration Hardware and a couple of orange poufs complete the relaxed look.
Geometric multicolor patterns and bold hues complete this contemporary kid-friendly family room by Kandrac & Kole Interior Design. A wood storage cabinet holds a media system on one side of the fireplace, while the other side serves as a reading corner with furry white stools. The room also has a sectional and white desks. Above the cabinet is a mirror made out of recycled paint cans.
Piles of toys often create clutter in family and media rooms, so control the chaos by using a storage system that addresses both toy and media storage. Go for a unit that combines drawers with open shelves, so you can use baskets for smaller toys and still have room for media equipment. Colorful soft hampers on each side create a home for stuffed animals.
This family room is covered in a rich citrus palette, durable upholstery and dark wood accents. The neutral color palette brings out the natural texture of the bamboo blinds, branches and woven ottoman.
