5 Inspirational Design Ideas for a Family Room Expansion or Addition

Your family deserves a space in your home to spend time together doing the things you enjoy. A family room expansion or addition creates the opportunity to focus on features based on your family’s interests. We’ve compiled our top 5 expansion and addition ideas for your inspiration. If one strikes your fancy, you can discuss the possibilities with an architect. 

Family Room Expansion Ideas

1. See-through Gas Fireplace

A double-sided fireplace does more than just divide a space. It creates a stunning architectural configuration in your family room. You can use a see-through fireplace to section off a sitting area or den while keeping an open feeling in the space. We only recommend it for gas, not woodburning fireplaces. 

2. Built-in Entertainment Center

Have a family movie night in style. When you renovate or expand your family room, add a custom entertainment center. Include a niche for your flat screen and shelves for books and nicknacks. Complete the home theater experience with wired-in surround sound. 

3. Bay Windows

Let natural light into your home with custom bay windows. Bay Windows are an area surrounded by windows that you can walk into. They create a beautiful niche for extra seating in your family room expansion.  

5. Skylights

Let the sunshine in. Modern skylights are versatile and beautiful. They allow natural light to diffuse through the room. Motorized models open for ventilation with a wall switch or remote. Plus, built-in shades are ideal for hot sunny days. Skylights can also increase your homes resale value.

4. Game Room

Create your perfect space for the family game night. Design shelves and cabinets to hold tabletop games. Add a wet bar for entertaining. And don’t forget to leave room for the pool table or pinball machine.
