ORGANIZATION IDEAS FOR THE LIVING ROOM…

There’s a reason why we call it the “living room”…we “live” here, enjoy with family and friends or just simply relax with a cup of coffee and a good book! We all have our own way to get the most out of this space. So making it look beautiful is very important. And let’s not forget, we usually have so much stuff that we need to figure out smart ways to design storage that pleases the eyes. The living room is a great place to go creative and come up with such solutions.

The first thing that comes to mind are shelves…simple floor to ceiling shelves can house tons of items, books, artifacts, stationery, photographs what not! Depending on the kind of things you want to display and the furniture in the room , you can choose a simple, new age look or a rough, rustic look or a plush, ornate look.

If you don’t want dust to get at your things or maybe want to store items which you don’t want your guests to see, closed cabinets are the best option…floor to ceiling and wall to wall cabinets are ideal for storing endless stuff. You can also go for a combination of shelves and closed cabinets or where only the TV shows (there is in built space to accommodate that)! Check out the images below for a clearer idea…

Other clever ideas are keeping pretty, matching bins (http://tinyurl.com/opytp64under the coffee table or designing a stylish table around the sofa where you can arrange things both on top and underneath. Cushioned seating benches with box storage below is a great multi-functional piece of furniture. A narrow console or entryway table with bins or baskets in the space under, can help a lot too! See below for a closer look…

And here’s a real off the beaten track way of storing things in the living room without looking shabby…a staircase which leads to the loft and offers adequate storage simultaneously!

So, think different and make your living room unique 🙂

  1. Hello, I’ve been looking for a shelving unit that wasn’t the run of the mill, and most of the merchants on the web seem to offer the same old same old. I was really amazed at see the “Fold-Out Mural Cleverly Combines Wall Art With Functional Shelves”, which is something that I thought would be eye-catching, and functional! I sadly found out that the unit was not for sale but was being considered, so I guess that I will hurry up and wait for it’s development and release.
