Hi, I'm new to these forums but I'm sure to be around a lot in the coming months. We are purchasing our first home. Our plan is to buy mostly new furniture since most of what we have has been handed down to us over the years. We have 2 young kids but will have a finished basement which will act as a family room so we would like the main floor of our home to be modern & sophisticated. The problem I am having is choosing the layout and what size furniture (and how much) we should be putting in the living area. We will not be putting a table in the livingroom/dining room - we only want one in the kitchen.Here is a link to the picture of the plans for the main floor. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c73/mangoflavorpunk/House/Also, should we be painting the kitchen & living room all the same colour or should we be going with different colours? An accent wall? Thanks!
