Our bonus room or family room is one of my favorite spaces in the new house. It is cozy and comfortable and it's great that it's basically soundproof and has a door to close out the rest of the house. I love the color of the walls.....very calm. (the same color as the dining room) We have Maddie's kitchen up there and a book corner where all of our kids books are shelved. The little brown couch is a full size pull out bed so we can house extra guests. The family room is where the girls go when they get up in the morning to drink their milk and watch cartoons. It's really convenient to lock the baby gate at the top of the stairs and let the girls play around upstairs between their bedroom, the guest room and the family room. It gives them a little independence and options of where they want to be and what they want to do and often times I can be downstairs making dinner, or cleaning and know that they are totally safe. I can see the girls having slumber parties in this room as they get older. ahhhh.
