Living room furniture needs to be comfortable, practical for everyday life, and look welcoming for guests. Good living room storage is key to keeping the area clutter-free and organised so that it’s a space your family and your visitors will enjoy using. When you’re planning living room storage, consider elements such as the TV and media units to keep all your tech in order, plus bookcases and cupboards, but also the other ways to include storage, such as with your choice of coffee table and side tables. There are extra ways to boost it, too: we offer footstools with storage inside, upholstered cubes that have stash room, and designs such as bench and window seats which will all help keep the space ordered and elegant. The seating you choose for the living room is also crucial. Gone are the days when a three-piece suite was a living room must-have. A range of seating options including sofas, armchairs, occasional chairs and even benches and cubes can create an easy and stylish mix that suits the whole family and every gathering, and you’ll find all these types of seating in our collection.
Shopping for modular living room furniture
One of the keys to effective storage is being able to include pieces that fit both your room and what you need to tidy away to a T. That’s why we have a large range of modular furniture for living rooms. Our modular living room furniture designs can be built up using individual units to create exactly the piece of furniture you need. This doesn’t mean constructing it yourself, of course – we’ll do that! But what our modular designs do allow is combining the elements of your piece of furniture to make what you need. Our modular designs can be big pieces of furniture that occupy the space from floor to ceiling and along one wall, if that’s what you’re after. But you can equally opt for more scaled-down pieces. Think about the mixture of open storage – that is cubbyholes and shelves – as well as cupboards and drawers. Our modular living room furniture offers different units, depending on the piece, so that you can get bespoke style.
Combining living room storage units
Your living room storage units will likely consist of a mixture of freestanding pieces of furniture, and modular designs. Our freestanding living room storage units take in cupboards – including specialised designs like our New Hampshire 4-way wine cupboard, dressers, and bookcases. Each of these designs can be customised so it’s right for your decorating scheme with a choice of paint colours and knobs and handles. You can combine these freestanding living room storage units with modular living room furniture that’s individualised in terms of the units you use in your piece and the dimensions of the piece of modular furniture you make. These modular designs, like our freestanding furniture, can also have the paint finish and handles or knobs you like the best.
Planning living room storage furniture
When you’re planning living room storage furniture, it can help to make a list of exactly what you need to store. From books, CDs, vinyl and films, through set-top boxes, consoles, controllers, and leads, to items like wine, paperwork, kids’ toys or magazines, there’s plenty to fit in a living room and storage needs are highly individual. Think, too, about whether any collections are likely to expand, and therefore storage needs to allow room for this to happen, or if you operate more of a one-in, one-out policy with any of your collections. Your list of what you need to store will also help you consider what you want on display, and what definitely shouldn’t be seen. This will influence the balance between freestanding pieces like open shelving, closed cupboards, furniture with doors and drawers, and all-in-one designs that combine cupboards, shelves and perhaps drawers. Don’t forget the storage opportunities offered by occasional tables, footstools, benches, cubes and more, too, though, as these can add to the mix with both open and hidden storage.
