Need help to redo a little room!!

joarukaDecember 9, 2012
There is a little room 9' by 19' which is at times used as the family room more so as a living room. Please help me redo it.

Pictures would help a lot! Doors, windows, style and color preference? Existing furniture?

You have a long, narrow room, and I've found the best way to deal with this kind of room is to divide it into sections. Create a section for tv watching, and perhaps another section for the 'fun' stuff. In the fun section you could put a table and chairs for board games, homework, casual meals, etc. In the tv area I would want a comfortable sofa, perhaps a sectional would be best. I love the color you've chosen for your curtains and one wall, but it doesn't go well with the floor color. And because your floor is so busy, I would want area rugs to break up the pattern a bit.

For the tv section: [houzz=

Target Home Annandale Area Rug, Safari · More Info
For the fun section:

Wall color: [houzz=

Can you suggest an idea to cover the floors other than rugs? Just another option..

If you want to completely cover them permanently, on a budget, I would get the 12" x 12" peel and stick vinyl tiles. They are super easy to install, and if your current floor is flat there's no issue at all. They are permanent, however!

If you can actually remove the tiles, and replace with hardwood or new tiles. It will increase the value if you own the space. You could put carpeting over them easily too if you want a softer surface and then you probably would not have to remove them.
