Good living room storage is almost as important as a good living room layout. Clutter can build up quickly in a space that’s used by the whole household every day, so it’s important that everything has its right place. A coffee table with drawers or a hidden shelf is perfect for keeping remote controls within reach but out of sight. Footstools that open up to reveal a secret storage compartment are another neat tidying trick, especially in small living rooms. Open shelving is great for books and ornaments, but it’s useful to have some kind of drawer or cupboard storage in your living room as well, where you can tuck away things like laptops and other items that you don’t want on display. Remember to leave plenty of room for any furniture with doors or drawers to open properly.
For small spaces, consider nesting tables that can expand when in use and fold up when they are not needed. Storage cabinets and case goods are placed against the wall, wherever the space allows. Media consoles and TV stands go under the television, and credenzas are usually placed on the longest wall. Etageres are high, open cabinets that display souvenirs, books, accessories and family photographs, and look best on a larger, empty wall so it doesn’t get crowded. Bar cabinets and bar carts are pieces that add an aura of glamour to the living room.
The sofa can be an integral part of your living room. It is the place where people are drawn to sit, as well as the piece of furniture that you are likely to point toward your main focus. Whether that focus is a television or a fireplace, your sofa will likely face it. There are a number of sofa options to choose from. The most traditional of which is the classic sofa. This is a standard in most living rooms and typically offers seating for three persons comfortably. This kind of sofa comes in a wide variety of styles, materials, and designs and is often very easy to reupholster.
