Hey, hey! It’s almost Friday!! :)
In my last post, I talked about ways to organize your kitchen with style, and today we are going to take about organizing our family rooms with style.
The truth is that many of the ways you can store items in the kitchen can be used in the family room as well. Let’s look at a few pictures for examples.
The picture below uses a galvanized tub to store blankets and a wooden tray on the coffee table to hold items as well. I spy another metal bucket in the wooden tray to hold candles, but I think it would be great to hold remote controls as well.
If you have a media table, baskets are a great way to store movies or toys. It is also smart to keep one basket empty so you can quickly clean up for company by dumping miscellaneous items in it and then sort it out later. :) Wire baskets can be used to store prettier items that you do not mind to be seen, like books or magazines. And as you see below, a media table is a great place to store extra pillows and throws.
Now, I have been wanting to create a media cabinet for our den like the one below, except white, for over two years now, but we haven’t had time. But a media cabinet like this is perfect for creating extra storage in your family room. Notice the use of many pretty baskets to store (or hide) items in this space. I love it!
You can never have too many pillows in your family room, so I love storing extra pillows in baskets like the picture below. They are functional but make beautiful decor as well!
Do you have space beneath your coffee table for extra storage? Why not use an old wooden crate to store items? When I saw this, my first thought was, “This would be perfect for someone who has small children!” I would definitely store all of the little toys that are usually laying around in the family room floor in this crate for easy access.
And throw blankets….my family LOVES them! And right now, I have a blue plastic tub hiding behind my couch that holds all of our blankets. #gottaworkonthat So maybe I need to get a pretty ladder like the one below to hold some of our throw blankets. It would be so much prettier than my blue plastic tub! :)
Lastly, I think storage ottomans are BRILLIANT in the family room! They could be used to store blankets, pillows, board games, movies, etc. It could be used for so many things and yet it absolutely beautiful. I need me one of these.
Do you have any more ideas that you want to share? What is your favorite way to store items in your family room?
