“The living room is where we come to think, to slow down the world for a second.” A Mr. Jason Winston says your living room is indeed a special place in your home. It is also one of the busiest and thus, a bit difficult to keep tidy. Messes can range from obstacle cords, cables, books, and magazines out of place.

Bins, cubes, and baskets don’t work only for storage, they can also add flare and detail to your home’s decoration. Depending on how you would like your home to look like, if you want it to be a bit more relaxed you can opt for wicker baskets and perhaps fabrics that suit the theme. On the other hand, if you have decided to go for creating a more modern space, you can go for metal bins and wired baskets. Make your items easily accessible and simple to put back away.
As we have mentioned before, creating a clutter-free space is important. Thus, it is not difficult to infer that it is easier to keep things in their place if they have a specific area or spot where they belong. Give everything a place by labeling storage bins, boxes, and even baskets. There are many methods to add labels in creative and innovative ways, so you do not have to use the obsolete label maker. You can choose chalkboard, vinyl, wooden tags, bookplates, fabric, etc.
Storage under Furniture
If you are organizing and decorating a small living room, the important thing is to make good use of the space you have, including the room under your furniture. For this, you can look for low storage bins and baskets that can slide right below your couch. Just as well, consider using woven baskets beneath your end tables or coffee table to keep perhaps your board games, magazines, or extra throws for movie nights.
In small apartments or when your space is limited on the floor, you can go for maximizing the space you have by hanging cabinets and shelves. Picture how you want them to go and then hang as many as you feel is necessary. You can use them to display your boos, your family photos, candles, and any other trinkets. If you have things, you do not want to display, you can put them behind a closed door in a cabinet. Shelves also can be aligned in a corner which is often unused space.
If you do not have much space, you should consider choosing your living room furniture carefully by having pieces that include much more storage than others. You should especially consider this for your coffee table. If you buy a double-decker coffee table, you can use storage baskets or store books. You can even have one with big drawers to store magazines, books, and even your always-lost remote controls.
Woven baskets are extremely useful. They can fit into any style from traditional to modern. They are also perfect for keeping things organized. You can add one by the front door to neatly stash shoes and another one next to the fireplace, if you have one, for wood. Also, if you don’t have much space near your coffee table, you can keep a big woven basket next to the sofa to store your throws and extra pillows.
Magazines can tend to accumulate on flat surfaces like your coffee table. Give your magazines a specific place to live. Whether wicker basket on the floor or a shelf on the wall, they will stay more organized if you keep them in a good spot.
Now this is our favorite and we have saved it for last. Rather than having laptops, tablets and cell phones strewn around the room on their chargers, you can use a magazine rack and turn it into a charging station for all of your electronics. Important to keep a charging strip near your rack in order to keep the cords neat and not entwined.
