Having enough storage is essential for a mess-free living room. Built-ins on either side of the fireplace offer both open and closed options. The bookcase shelves make for easy organization of books, while toys and smaller items can be stowed in baskets. Cabinets with doors offer hidden storage for things like DVDs and kid ' art supplies.
A rocker is a must-have piece of furniture for kiddos. Not only is it great for lulling little ones to sleep, but it's also the quintessential reading spot. Luckily, rockers come in all shapes, sizes and styles, so find one that fits right in to your design. Also, with kids, you spend a lot of time on the floor, so consider having comfortable throw pillows around to sit or lay on.
If floor space is an issue, consider switching out a traditional swinging door for a sliding barn door. Not only does a barn door save space, its rustic look also adds a fun architectural element to even the most builder-basic living rooms.
If a piece of furniture, like a coffee or end table, has seen better days, transform it with a fresh coat of paint or stain. A high-gloss paint treatment is a great choice for a contemporary space, or try a distressed treatment, like the one designer Joanna Gaines used in this cottage-style living room.
