Living Room Organization
- Tame your media clutter
- Create relaxing user-friendly comfort zones
We sorted and purged the clutter and decided what items needed to live in this living room and which could be stored elsewhere in the home. We organized audio-visual equipment on shelves and stored the family’s games in the closed chest. Now the focus in the room is on the beautiful stone fireplace not the clutter, and the family can relax and enjoy each other’s company.
“I came home from work at 7:30 am this morning, with a plan to spend the day picking up the house because we are having company this weekend. 30 minutes later and I realized that I am pretty much ready. The kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, bathrooms and hallway areas are almost ready to go. I am putting off the vacuuming and mopping until later. Aside from that, all that’s left are the things I only need to do when we have guests.. converting the craft
room back into a guest room and setting up my daughter’s schoolroom (former basement playroom.. did that one myself) with air mattresses. It’s been at least 2 years since we’ve worked together, and I am still impressed with the results!” —M.A. Princeton, NJ
This family room needed defined spaces where kids toys were separate from the family relaxation area.
By creating more storage for toys, the kids have a defined toy area: Sister’s toys on the right and Brother’s toys on the left. Arts and Crafts are grouped together and put away in a closed cabinet. Toys with pieces are placed in individual bins that can be taken out when needed and put away easily when finished.
