Living Room Storage Ideas to Inspire

The living room is often considered the heart and soul of the home. As well as being somewhere to relax as a family or entertain with friends, it’s a room that also needs to be functional for everyday life. This includes providing a space to store belongings, whether that’s your much-loved book collection or spare blankets to keep you cosy during those chilly winter months.

No matter your lounge size, it couldn’t be simpler to give this all-important room a makeover with a few simple yet very achievable tips for harmonious living. Whether you like the idea of fitted storage cabinets or you’d prefer to make the most of your existing furnishings, let us inspire you with the following living room storage ideas.

Living room storage units

There’s far more to living room furniture than just sofas and coffee tables! There are plenty of ways to incorporate living room storage units that not only look effortlessly stylish but also provide you with plenty of cupboards, drawers and shelves.

An exemplary storage cabinet helps hide various things that commonly clutter up the lounge, from books and board games to electronics and candles. There’s also the option of a fitted living room storage cabinet with doors or even a whole wall of units.

Our range of bespoke fitted living room units are handcrafted in the UK and can be configured to fit your exact space. Some of the most functional designs include practical extras such as desk spaces. We’re also able to build beautiful storage units to suit uniquely-shaped rooms or even to fit around certain features like your TV.

Living room storage furniture

Before you even consider trying out our small living room storage ideas, it’s well-worth decluttering your space first. Donate, sell or store anything you no longer use.

Next, you can focus on what furniture works best for your small living space. Many homes have alcoves on either side of a fireplace or chimney breast. These are brilliant places for bookcases or fitted shelving units, including those with doors that effortlessly hide any clutter you don’t want to see.

A modular shelving unit is a brilliant option, too. Not only will it provide you with ample space to store your belongings, but you’ll be able to display ornaments, books and decorative items stylishly. Floating shelves are attractive, too, and can be installed almost anywhere in a room.

Choosing practical seating is another superb storage idea for a living room. Many modular sofas come with chaises that have hidden storage spaces. Love an ottoman? Select a hollow one, so you can use the interior to stow away things like blankets, bedding or spare cushions. A bay window is also a prime space to fit a practical yet pretty window seat with an in-built storage cupboard.

“I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone”

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.

I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.

Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham

“Effortless from start to finish”

From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
