Episode No. 101

Family Room Makeover

Design a Family Room with Form and Function

In Episode 101 of the Home Tour Series, the Squad helps a New Jersey mother and daughter transform their back room into an organized, comfortable family room while the rest of the family is away. The family’s backroom had become a magnet for clutter. With no clear space for work or homework, the family was having a hard time getting anything done. The Squad focused on creating a beautiful, comfortable family room with more storage and plenty of workspace. They replaced the cluttered shelves and tabletops with a printer cabinet for filing, hidden storage and shelves with doors. The Squad created a place to display cherished firefighter memorabilia in the updated entertainment center. A mix of general, task and mood lighting makes the room pop and creates a cozy and productive atmosphere. Including a pull-out sofa bed made the room a cozy guest bedroom for visiting family and friends. The family was thrilled with their new family room with form and function created by the IKEA Home Tour Squad.
