Once, some generations ago, a typical home had a living room and a separate room that functioned as the family room where the family lived out daily routines. Kids never took their toys and games in the living room, and, before TV, families never ate there. Family rooms are most desired by home buyers, and a more formal, smaller room functions as a sitting room, where nobody sits. Today, people want great rooms, where just about everything happens within sight of the kitchen. These large highly utilized rooms make for happy families and are great for entertaining.
Since great rooms are ... great, the furniture options are many. There is often room for distinct sitting areas, incorporating a couple of couches and chair conversation zones. This space is usually centered around an equally large entertainment center and a big screen TV. There are furniture options that combine storage with function, so that the space acts as a place for the kids during the day and can be easily cleaned up and be "grown-up" in the evening. Expect to find a large table which acts as a homework desk, a game center, and for serving the family meals. These multi-use rooms are popular with families, large and small.
The great room furniture can take on as many looks. Some families opt for sleek modern lines, and other families will choose large overstuffed, comfy pieces for lounging or even a nap after the big game. Another great great room idea is upholstered pieces that can be slip covered. Slip covers can be removed for laundering and easily changed for the seasons.
As the tables in the great room serve many roles, look to your local furniture store to see what works for your great room needs. Coffee tables and end tables are a must unless you use the area for building forts and practicing gymnastics. Buffet tables make good room dividers and serving stations for large gatherings, entertainment centers store all the videos and games for a family, and couches can double as a spare bed.
