There are plenty of shelving options available in all kinds of materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. There are shelves that hang, shelves that are built into your walls, or shelves that stand free so that they can be placed anywhere. With the right shelves, you not only clear up storage issues, but you can compose a great design. You can expect to spend $20-$25 per linear foot on shelves made from basic wood materials. If you do the labor yourself, you can save some money. Professional labor could you be between $30 to $60 per hour of their work.
If you have no free walls and a centered fireplace, float seating in the center of a room filled with doors and windows. Face chairs and sofa toward each other to encourage conversation. Anchor the conversation grouping with a rug and large coffee table. Frame the space with additional seating and cabinets for storage, positioned around the perimeter of the room along the walls. Arranging furniture around a fireplace, especially in the winter, makes your living room feel inviting and cozy.
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.
