If your living room feels like a playroom, or a sport depot, maybe it’s time to reclaim your space.
Even if your room must be a multifunctional space there are plenty of ways to add decorative storage to hide away items that are used in the space until you need them. Some sofas now have built-in storage compartments.
First, define your space.
What do I want for my space?
Relaxation, Crafts, Reading Nook?
Do I have the appropriate lighting?
Are there any items that really do not belong?
Is there a more appropriate space somewhere else in the house items can be relocated?
Create zones: Watching TV, Games Table, Reading Nook
Does your coffee table have space for baskets?
Could you add an ottoman with a lid?
Or a bench with a place for baskets?
The living room should be a relaxing space. Too many items or clutter is not conducive for relaxation.
