the living room is often overlooked when it comes to storage solutions, but when utilised well, this space can act as a serious storage hub!
If you’re looking to add additional storage to your home, a great place to consider is your living room. Although the living room is arguably one of the most used areas of the home, where family members gather at night to watch a movie, or during the day to play games, space can often be tight. Incorporating savvy storage solutions is a great way to make use of the space you have, and make it work hard. Let’s explore a few different ways you can incorporate practical and stylish storage into your living room!
Featuring a run of cabinetry in the living room adds serious design flair to the space, not to mention plenty of hidden storage! Our wall cabinets have been used here instead of base cabinets, as they have a more shallow depth, allowing for more usable space in the living room.
Creating an entertainment unit that has lots of concealed storage is a no brainier! You’ll be able to hide away any ugly cords as well as entertainment equipment, throws, games, books – you name it. Adding additional storage in the form of a buffet is not only functional but stylish, and can be created using our base cabinets. For more information around how to get the look, you can visit our dedicated kaboodle kitchen x Interiors Addict blog.
Another way you can incorporate storage into your living room is by creating a window seat. You can opt to leave your shelves open to be used for more decorative storage, or you can choose to add drawers for more of a concealed solution. This window seat has been created using our hevea benchtops and coconut milk end panels. Recreate your own window seat following our how to: create a window seat blog.
Finally, if space permits, you can utilise a hallway or even one of the walls in your living room to create a stylish run of pantry cabinets. If you’re in need of additional storage, this is definitely the way to go! You can even opt to use our paint your own doors, which allow you to match your cabinetry to the interior palette of your living room – genius!
