Home Addition Specialist, Proudly Serving San Diego County Since 1965
Just think to when you were growing up. Your home probably had a “living room,” the room that you used only when company came over and that you were absolutely forbidden to play in. Times have changed and now the family room reigns supreme. This is where we gather in the evening to watch television, surf the internet, or listen to music.
Ritz Design Build can transform the family room into the crossroads of your house. We can tear down walls to create a great room—a single large space incorporating the kitchen, dining room and family room—truly a new heart for your home. This makes it easy for family members to spend time together while pursuing different activities. A parent might be making dinner while younger children play and older children study. In the evening, someone might hop on a computer to check email while the rest of the family is watching TV. If you like entertaining, open flowing spaces accommodate larger crowds with ease. Kitchen islands with barstool seating allow people to sit and chat while dinner is being prepared, transforming the kitchen into a social center. With proper foresight and planning from our architectural staff, your new “great room” will become an industrious center, bringing in essential amenities to provide an organized, entertaining, and workable environment for everyone.
Be honest with yourself, how does your family really spend their time? While you may like to fantasize about playing board games with your family in front of the fireplace, the reality might be that you have a pack of manic gamers. So go ahead, get the big screen and a huge sectional. That way your teens are more likely to invite their friends over. Ritz Design Build can hook you up with the latest home entertainment systems or set up a computer niche off the kitchen.
For the family room in particular, it’s important that you consider the layout of the furniture in the design of the room. Just think about. Perhaps your family room has a large bay window that overlooks your backyard. Large windows mean fewer walls. Just where are you going to put that large flat screen? Or for the matter, do you want the television to be the focal point of the room? Perhaps you want a fireplace to be the heart of the room. Either way, in the design phase we can incorporate your existing furniture or suggested furniture into the 3D renderings so you really get an idea of the flow of the room. We also work closely with several interior designers if you want help in selecting furniture and finishes for your amazing new family room.
