1. Create Zones
The first step in organizing a living room is designating specific areas for each activity, such as a seating area, play area, reading area, and so on. Determine each 'zone' by thinking about how your family and friends use the space. Are you always entertaining? Do you have game nights? Do your children craft or play in the space? Once you have your answers, you can give each activity its own spot in your living room.
Sometimes toys and board games can overstay their welcome by crowding bookshelves, floors, or table tops. To corral them, give the toys and games a home in an unused corner in your living room. Plus, the kids now have a permanent play area. Include storage options, like bins, a small game table, or shelving, to allow for more play room and to control clutter.
