Come On In And…Relax…

In many homes, the family room is the primary place where everyone gathers for quality time. It’s where you watch TV together, play together, or just curl up with a good book on a rainy day. For some people, the family room might even be a place where they gather to eat the occasional meal. It also tends to be the place where your family receives guests.

The versatility and popularity of a family room mean that the needs of everyone in the household need to be represented. This can pose quite a challenge, especially if multiple members of your family have widely different interests.

A family room that lacks effective organization and storage is prone to constant mess and chaos. Not only does this make it harder for you to find what you want, but it can also lead to conflict between family members, in the room where you come together to connect and bond.

Design A Family Room With Trendy Organization Systems

Making sure that the needs of each family are met in the family room can be a major challenge that you don’t see in most other rooms of the house. It can be especially challenging if you have a larger family with diverse interests.

Closettec’s designers have years of experience helping families to develop a family room that meets their needs, with innovative storage options. In some situations, it might help to define what absolutely needs to be in the family room, and what might be stored in a nearby location like a hall closet.

The first step in the process usually calls for assessing the available space. Existing closets and shelves in the room might benefit from one of our versatile organization systems. If there isn’t an existing closet or storage space in the room, our designers can help you explore other options like built-in furniture storage, a secondary wall closet, shelving units, or perhaps a discreet wardrobe closet.

A Family Room Storage With Style

In most homes, the family room is a gathering place for the people who live there, as well as the guests who visit. While functional storage is certainly important, you also want the room to emanate with your own style, with clean looking comfort. There are several ways to do this depending on the characteristics of the room.

There is a wide range of styles to consider. Most of which can be adapted to match your existing décor. At the same time, upgrading your family room’s storage space can also be the perfect opportunity to refresh your current concept.

Closettec’s designers have access to a truly staggering number of closet organization systems.

This includes:

  • Adjustable shelf and hanging space systems
  • Versatile cubby systems
  • Basket systems
  • Built-in drawers
  • Built-in cabinets

Built-In Furniture Storage With Style

There are some family rooms that simply don’t have any existing closet and shelving space. Depending on the room’s styling cues, our designers might recommend adding some built-in furniture with discrete, yet stylish storage options. Even something as simple as a comfortable window bench with pull out drawers and cabinets can significantly increase a family room’s storage space.

Some of the more popular built-in furniture storage options include:

  • A built-in writing desk

  • A wardrobe with doors that match the room’s décor

  • A bookshelf

  • Corner storage racks

  • A built-in entertainment center with discrete storage

  • A window bench with lift top storage bins, cabinets or drawers

Entertainment Center Storage

Watch The Big Game In Luxury

A well-designed family room entertainment center can become the beating heart of a home. It’s the sort of thing that brings kids down from their rooms to watch a show or enjoy family moving night. It’s also the kind of place that entices close friends to come over to “Watch the Big Game.”

Freestanding and built-in entertainment centers offer their own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to available storage as well as the impact on the budget.

A freestanding entertainment center is just like any other piece of furniture in your home. Some are available at the retail level for a very reasonable price. However, they tend to be a little short on storage space, and many still leave some cords and other components in visible places.

Also, many freestanding units on the retail level tend to be made from inferior materials that don’t always stand the test of time. In some cases, you might find one that meets all your needs but doesn’t fit the basic style of your family room. Then you might find one that meets the basic style you want, except it doesn’t have much in the way of storage space.

In a scenario like this, our designers can help concept a freestanding custom entertainment center that both matches the style of your family room while maximizing the storage capacity.
