      Wrap the couch in bookcases instead of using end tables. - I've always thought this was a good idea. Might free up space to add more seating places or entertainment venues in your main living area

      Wrap the couch in bookshelves rather than have end tables. Our Living room isn't big enough to -wrap- them around, but I really like the idea of doing this against the back of the cough instead of trying to find a cheap sofa table, which has less storage. The only concern would be kids trying to climb them...

    DesignHome - Storage Solutions / Sometimes, natural niches are created where walls bump in or out. Here, open shelves serve as the base to a bedroom window seat, keeping books close by. To visually enlarge a window, where space allows, extend the seat at least 8 to 12 inches on either side. Lengthening it to about 5 feet will invite people to stretch out.

    Good idea :)
