Put the “Fun” in Functional with Shared Living Spaces

By | October 1, 2014

For many of us, space is at a premium in the home. Often, kids and grown-ups share living spaces; and the sophisticated living room is pushed aside to make room for the kids’ toys, books, and games. It’s a tug-of-war many families experience. But there are some creative options out there to help you create the sophisticated living room you want, while still making it a room perfect for the kids’ play time.

Radical Reading Nook. Give the kids a special spot to read and relax that’s just the right size for them. Install shelving for easy-to-reach book storage and kid-sized seating – even a built-in storage bench – for comfortable reading with hidden storage inside! Books will have a proper spot to make clean-up time easier and you’ll have an adorably attractive kid-friendly area they’ll love.

Super Sleepovers. Sleepovers are a rite of childhood. But sometimes there’s not enough room to host your guests! Consider installing two twin wall beds (also known as Murphy Beds) in your family room. It’s a comfortable sleeping solution for guests of all ages; and when the beds are stowed away, they look like beautiful cabinetry that lends itself to the style and sophistication you want in that room.

Wonderful Wall Units. Custom wall units are a great storage and organization solution when you’re sharing living spaces with the kids. They can be specially designed to hide the TV and toys when they’re not in use, and feature books and collectibles on shelving that you want to display proudly all the time.

Custom storage and organization solutions can help you maximize the space in your home, beautifully and affordably.
