Q. How do you feel about track lighting over pictures in the home?
A. I assume you are referring to lighting on the ceiling that focuses light on art work. I am all for it in most situations.
If you have a period home that is restored and track lighting was not used originally, that would be a problem for me.
There are lights that attach to the frame that also work well.
Q. How can I make a family room functional but still not look like a storage room or just a bunch of chairs around a television?
A. The only way to be confident that furniture will fit and function is to create a floor plan in 1/4" scale and use templates to represent the furniture.
You can also try re-arranging if you have a good eye for balance. TV's do limit arrangements; however the new thin screens are more friendly.
Without more specific information I can't really help you in your room. You may need the advice of a professional. Most designers are happy to spend time with you at an hourly rate to help you get the most of what you already have.
