When you move out of your apartment and buy a house in the suburbs for the family, it’s time to rethink decorating. The formal love seat and wooden chairs in the living room aren’t going to cut it anymore. For the home, you must start thinking about durable furniture with stain-proof fabrics that will bring everyone together. Outside of the kitchen, where does the family congregate the most? The living room first and bedrooms second. Fill those rooms with furniture that is fun for the kids and comfortable for everyone. The best family-friendly furniture for your home will draw everyone in and bring them closer together.
Kids love bunk beds; it’s basically a universal fact. Bunk beds are fun for children and very practical for parents. If you are short on rooms and long on kids, then start expanding up. Think of bunk beds as high-rise beds; when you can’t expand out, expand up. Even if you don’t need the space, bunk beds are good to have on hand for sleepovers and slumber parties.
Nothing says family time like movie night. Enjoy big bowls of popcorn, getting cozy with blankets, and a great movie for the whole family. Sectional sofas are big enough to fit everyone in comfort. There’s space enough for the teenagers to sprawl out and mom and dad can snuggle close. Sectionals are versatile enough that you can move the pieces around to fit just about any configuration in your house.
Comfy Couches With Big Pillows
Maybe you don’t have enough room in your house for a big sectional. No problem. A standard couch that has oversized pillows for the backrest is just as good and doesn’t take up as much space. Add an oversized ottoman to the couch and everyone can put their feet up like they have their own recliner. Movie night will get a little closer this way.
Bean Bag Chairs
Make the family-friendly furniture for you home retro with bean bag chairs. It’s always fun for the kids to sprawl out on the floor and set up an indoor picnic. Bean bag chairs will never go out of fashion with the kids. As an adult, you probably still have a love for bean bags. The only issue is that you physically outgrew them. After all, the older you get, the harder it is to get off the floor.
