A busy family home can be a nightmare to organise if there isn’t enough storage available. Often, when we think about reorganising a living space, what we’re actually thinking about is decluttering, tidying and organising. When a room is well organised, there always seems to be so much more space available. A good start is to invest in some storage, such as shelves, wall mounted units and cabinets. However, there are other less obvious ways to get organised around your home that are functional and still stylish.
- Coffee Table Chests:
The humble coffee table is rarely used to its full potential by the vast majority of us. A regular coffee table with a wooden or glass top and a shelf underneath offers little beyond holding a drink or a magazine. A better alternative is to purchase a coffee table chest; this will give you a functional focal point with the added bonus of additional storage. Keeping items, such as family board games, throws, blankets and of course magazines, organised and hidden away will make your room less cluttered.
- Get an Ottoman:
Who doesn’t like to put their feet up at the end of a long day to relax? I’m guessing the answer is all of us, but a standard foot stool doesn’t contribute anything else to a living room. In fact, most footstools simply take up floor space most of the time when they are not in use. An ottoman, on the other hand, is a luxurious footstool, with the added bonus of bags of hidden storage space. They are available in a wide variety of colours, styles, and sizes, so there will be one to suit your living room.
- Consider Lamp Tables:
Having lamps is a great way to light your living room with ambient light for relaxing. However, in recent decades we have seen the growth in popularity of freestanding lamps. From an organisation point of view, these kinds of lamps offer little in the way of functionality. A better option, for the cluttered home, would be to use a lamp table with a table lamp on it. A well designed lamp table will have storage located underneath: such as drawers or a perhaps a cabinet. In this way, you will be maximising the amount of storage by not wasting floor space. Lamp tables are available in a variety of styles and colours to suit your chosen table lamp.
