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