Family Room Storage Tips from the Calgary Furniture Experts

Once everyone’s eaten and it’s time to relax, there’s only one room in the home where everyone wants to go and take a load off: the family room! It’s one of the places in the home where you and your family spend the most time, so it’s important that you feel comfortable there. However, over time even the largest family rooms can seem cluttered, which is why having some storage space is essential.

As one of the leading furniture stores in Calgary, Furniture Extreme has helped many homeowners find the right family room storage solutions for them. Here are some tips to make shopping for family room furniture a breeze.


Do Some Decluttering First

One of the first things you can do to free up some space in your family room is to spend some time getting rid of the clutter. It’s often easiest to start in one corner of the room and work through the whole area, getting rid of those old magazines and newspapers you’ve already read, recycling the old family board games your kids have grown out of and passing along those old movies and video games gathering dust on the shelves.

To clear more space, you can also keep craft supplies and other items you don’t use every day in a nearby closet. When cleaning up your family room, a good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t used something in more than a few months, consider passing it along to someone else who will.


Invest in Functional Furniture

These days, there are a host of pieces of furniture out there that are designed to serve as storage, in addition to its original purpose. Some of the leading pieces of functional furniture from Furniture Extreme include our Borlofield Coffee Table Ottoman and our Clara Lift-Top Coffee Table. We also carry shelving units and bookshelves to increase your storage space, as well as buffets, credenzas, and baskets to hide things like books and remotes.
