We all know it can be hard to get a handle on your family room storage, especially because so many people share the space. That's why smart storage solutions and clever organizational products are so key. The place where media streaming occurs is also the place where groups gather to sink into the couch for a comfy spell. This leaves all of us asking, "Where exactly do I put all the stuff to keep me sane?"
Here are 10 family room storage ideas we like a lot that can work in pretty much any sized space.
1. Group it all together.
Pick a wall in your room that can store all of your essentials like in this space from Bless' Er House. From shelving for photo displays to matching bins where toys and games can be hidden, this coastal family room look can be incorporated anywhere for playtime and screen time.
2. Make things roll.
3. Do a basket and bench combo.
Grab a corner in your family room and install a bench for both seating and storage, because who doesn't love a double-duty design feature? This idea from Jen Samson keeps things chic by adding some oversized baskets below a space to sit and chat. But you can also add drawers or open shelves too.
4. Float the furniture.
We love a minimalist look, and this idea from Loughlin Furniture is everything. The floating console is the perfect place to store stuff, the open shelves add some flare and the TV looks like a piece of pop art.
5. Deck out the credenza.
6. Use the sofa for storage.
7. Go from floor to ceiling.
The Hunker House has the right idea with this built-in plywood shelving situation. It takes up an entire wall. Play with angles and heights in your floor-to-ceiling bookcase for an unexpected style statement, and you've got storage galore (and gorgeous decor) in your family room.
8. Outsource items to the ottoman.
A small-space ottoman like this one from West Elm can double as a family room storage bin to hide throw blankets, gaming consoles, books, remotes, and more. They look especially great in transitional spaces.
9. Don't settle for a regular coffee table.
If you're adding a coffee table to your family room, consider an option that works in more ways than one. Take this wood table from CB2. It has two levels of storage and spins for when you need to share your snack plate but are too cozy to move anything more than your arm.
