Family Room Organization Ideas

Next in our series on home organization, we focus on the family room, den or living room – whatever you call that room where your family congregates to spend time together, read, play board games, watch TV, or sit by a roaring fire. Because we spend so much time there, the family room tends to get filled up with clutter.

Coffee Tables & Ottomans

In your family room, the most obvious storage potential comes from your coffee table or ottomans. Choices of material abound. From leather, to wood, to wicker… you can pack heavy storage without sacrificing style. You can even give beautiful purpose to that vintage suitcase!

Bin There? Done That!

Bins are among your more versatile options when it comes to family room storage. They’re great for tossing in children’s toys, and can add a splash of color to your decor.

If your family room is small (or even if it isn’t!) building storage into your seating is a space-efficient way to keep clutter out of sight.

Bookshelves aren’t just for books anymore! Find yourselves a stylish unit like this one, and you can house books, knick knacks, vases, your sound system, and much more!

Re-Purposed Filing Systems

A little elbow grease and some imagination can transform a vintage filing system into a valuable and unique storage solution.

Log Storage

Curling up by a toasty fire in the winter can be delightful, but where to stowe those logs? We favor recessed storage to save space and keep your fireplace neat and tidy.
