Make every inch of wall space count in a small family room by adding furniture pieces that offer storage.
Placing bookshelves across an entire wall or against either corner with a mirrored wall between provides display area without taking up space inside the room’s living area.
Replace a conventional cocktail table with a storage ottoman. It provides all of the great uses of an upholstered ottoman – additional seating & tabletop functionality – with the added benefits of a hiding place and easy access to blankets and games. Some storage tables include serving trays tucked inside.
If you have an open floor plan and at least 14” behind your sofa, a console table is a finishing touch that adds storage space. The table top surface allows for displaying framed photos, books and lamps. Whether the bottom includes a shelf or not, decorative storage boxes or baskets can be placed underneath.
