How to Create a Cozy Feeling Den or Family Room
  • Opening Intro -

    Home renovations are one of those things that seem to be an ongoing project with homeowners.

    As soon as you finish one room and get the look right, it seems there's another room just waiting to get your attention.


If you’re gearing up to tackle your den or family room and want the end result to be something that is inviting and cozy, then you’ll appreciate these simple and easy to follow tips that will help ensure the final look is what you had in mind.

Begin with Flooring

When it comes to that cozy feel, homeowners are often quick to jump on changing the paint color or furniture, but here’s the thing, without the right flooring you just won’t be able to create the look you’re going for. One of the most inviting and cozy types of flooring out there is hardwood or laminate. Wood has that lived in feel and look that works well in so many different styles of home.

For something truly unique, why not choose end grain flooring from Maomin Resawn Timbers. This end-grain wood tiles have been reclaimed from roads and factories that date back to the turn of century.

You’ll have an actual piece of history in your home, and it will be completely unique. You can find all kinds of species and patterns available allowing you to really customize the space.

If you like the idea of a rug, you can always pair a great looking area rug with wood floors. It will add more warmth to the space and because it’s an area rug, you can easily change it out at any time.

Mix Patterns and Colors

Another tip is to throw your fear of mixing patterns and colors and just go all out. You want to stick to the same color family in order for it to flow, but outside of that there really are no rules. This variety of colors of patterns will create an eclectic feel, which is always cozy and welcoming.

Paint a Bold Wall

People often assume that cozy means neutral colors on the wall, but this isn’t necessarily the case. Sure you can pick a soft neutral color, but why not pick one wall as an accent and go bold. A rich deep color can do wonders to really warm up a space and give it personality. It also adds dimension and interest to a room.

Keep Things Casual

The final tip is to be sure you keep the feel and the design of the room casual. Casual is what welcomes people to come in and relax. This means lots of great soft pillows, plush throws, a selection of magazines, and let’s not forget board games laid out. All of this shows signs of life, which is exactly what you want in your new den or family room.

Nothing Left to Do but Enjoy the Space

Now that you’ve put together this cozy and comfortable den or family room, all that is left to do is enjoy the space with family and friends.
