10 Ways to Use Living Room Furniture for Storage
Keep the clutter down by concealing and organizing your living room necessities. These 10 pieces of furniture will help you do the trick.
1. Tiered Coffee Table
While the surface of a coffee table offers plenty of function, get even more from this living room staple by choosing a tiered model. Stack books and magazines on the shelf below, and use baskets both on and underneath the tabletop to corral other items.
2. Console Cabinet
In an open living room floor plan, consider a console cabinet an essential piece. Position one behind a sofa that “floats” in the middle of a room and you’ll have a spot for lamps to illuminate the seating space, a surface for placing drinks, plus plenty of storage.
Invest in built-ins to give your living room architectural presence as well as an organized appearance. Frame a doorway with shelves, or consider cabinetry around a fireplace.
