familyroomWhen the holidays arrive, family and friends come together to celebrate. A family room addition is a wonderful idea to create more space them to gather. The family room will be the addition you wonder how you lived without, because it will completely transform the way you use your home. Northern Virginia remodeling contractor Daniels Design & Remodeling is ready to help you plan the perfect room for the holiday get togethers.

Pick The Spot

Placing the family room next to the kitchen allows you to create the living space of your dreams. Northern Virginia remodeling contractor Daniels Design & Remodeling recommends also locating the family room at the back of the house, creating the opportunity to have the space open out onto the backyard. Taking out the entire wall between the kitchen and the family room creates a multi-use space for entertaining, cooking, dining, watching movies and hanging out.

Add The Extra’s

There’s no limit to what you can add to your family room to make it your own personal paradise. Including a fireplace gives the room a special ambiance, and creates a festive glow at the holidays. A wet bar is a perfect addition if you do a lot of entertaining, and is the star of the show when the holidays come around.  Plan for a home theater in the design stages, so the room can be pre-wired during construction while the walls and ceilings are open.

Plan Your Exit

It’s an excellent idea to put in an exterior door for easy access to your outdoor space. Glass doors opening onto a deck will create more outdoor living space, and plenty of room for your holiday guests to socialize. Large exterior doors will allow light to flood into your room, making the whole house seem more open and airy.

The holidays are all about family and friends, and planning a family room addition will give you all the space you need to entertain in style.
