While most think of a family living area decorating theme as you with board games, and fluffy carpet, it can be much more. Family oriented living room decorating themes are common home based decorating circles, and quite often are similar in looks. In order to accommodate a family you must have a spot for everyone to sit. For this theme, you should focus on making the sofa as large as possible, with as much room for your loved ones as needed. Using the sofa as a design anchor, the rest of this living area decorating theme should fall into place.
