Cozy & Hectic Family Rooms

Design Ideas from Alcher with Sale Products

Distressed wood tileLove the look of wood but have active kids and animals running wild? Maybe you’re concerned about using wood in a family space because of all the activity? We have a solution!

Attic by Grazzini is a porcelain tile that simulates the wood look. I swear, it fooled me the first time I saw it! Now you can have that wood look with tile’s easy cleaning. So lay down the Black Rett Grazzini tile and consider a decorative border using stone and/or glass tile accents by Jeffrey Court or mosaics by Stone & Pewter Accents.

Jeffrey Court serves up two glass and stone choices– a Pietra Opal 1 ½  X 1 ½  square Fire & Ice in Quartz and glass a random 1 ½ ” x 1 ½  ” and 1 ½ ” x 5 ½ ” mix of Brick shapes Fire & Ice in Quartz. Both of these offerings come on mesh-backed sheets approximately 11” square. Stone & Pewter Accents gives you 3 different choices of glass mosaics. Check out the marbleized 1” x 1” squares in ivory silk, the Hasen 1” x 3” glass in argent or the Sumie Hida 1” x 2” in silk.

For that extra warmth in your cozy family room, consider a heated floor under a sisal area rug from Fiberworks Studio Key Rug Collection in silvered gray!

Add an interesting texture to your walls using Candice Olson’s Collective I grass cloth-look with just a slight hint of metallic in a beautiful neutral greige (gray/taupe mix).

For upholstery options, Perennials’ Pygmy Stripe in basalt and Old World Weavers’ Interlochen in Chocolate Chip tie everything together for a polished, comfortable family room that can stand up to the traffic.
