This is a great idea for adding storage in your living room and in the place of end tables! Just add book shelves around the sofa!

Bookshelves wrapped around couch Forget end tables. These bookshelves fulfill your need for end tables next to the couch, while also elegantly storing books and knickknacks. #livingroom #shelves
Wrap the couch in bookshelves rather than have end tables---how come all of my home ideas are about books?!!
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...
Wrap-around bookshelves! Cool idea - I'll have to remember if I ever have a living room like this

Thank you!** Many Little Houses were built without a dedicated office space, but smart Little House dwellers have found a solution to that problem: The Cloffice. Unfortunately for me, my house lacks decent sized closets, so a cloffice is out of the question, but I can see how this would work in many Little Houses! Source: homestoriesatoz.com via Katie on Pinterest Source: apartmenttherapy.com via Katie on Pinterest Even without a closet to spare, some creative space planning can help you carve out a corner of a room to use as an office, too. See how seemlessly this office is integrated into the living room? Source: southernliving.com via Katie on Pinterest This built-in, under-the-stairs office is genius! Even if you aren’t handy enough to build this yourself, hiring someone to do it is a heckuvalot cheaper than adding a room on to your house! Source: houzz.com via Katie on Pinterest The other type of space that seems to be missing in Little Houses is a playroom. And a quick google search of “kid friendly family rooms” really doesn’t bring many results. But some have incorporated a play space into their living room. Behind the sofa is a great place to use for toys and toy storage. These bookshelves could easily be filled with toys instead of books, leaving a sophisticated space for adults on one side of the room, and plenty of space to store toys when they’re not in use. Source: google.com via Katie on Pinterest But if you don’t have space to divide your room into two zones, a play table can easily serve as a coffee table. Check out these two rooms! Source: wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com via Katie on Pinterest Source: houzz.com via Katie on Pinterest I’ve loved hearing your ideas on purging, decluttering and clothes organization, and I’d love to hear what you have to say about multipurpose rooms, too.

Laundry Room Ideas Laundry Room Ideas Laundry Room Ideas. "You had me front loading washer and dryer - and a counter top for folding laundry"
DIY folding table and laundry room furniture you can take with you when you move. Combine a pair of matching bookshelves with a tabletop or slab of laminate countertop to create a full-service laundry center in minutes. If necessary, screw decorative feet into the bookcase to ensure that they're approximately half an inch taller than your appliances. BHG
Great idea for a laundry room that doesn't have built-ins: a countertop on top of the machines, extended over the edges to have shelves for cleaning products.
Build a Folding Table for the laundry room! We are going to be adding a countertop in ours for folding and I thought this was worth sharing!

Built in Window Seat/Book Shelves
Bay Window, Built In, Builtin, Living Room, Windowseat, Master Bedroom, House Idea
Built-in cabinet and windowseat is exactly what I want to do in the India apartment's guest room. Instead of open shelves, closed wardrobe cabinets on the sides. The ceiling is 10 feet so with a ladder we could extend storage across the top too. The window seat will be deep and "lounge-able."
love this- who cares if you don't have a bay window, make a window seat anyway! This one looks nice enough to be in a living room, etc... But I think it would be fun to do this idea in a play room - a fun spot to read books, and a nice added feature that doesn't look so childish :)
love this- who cares if you don't have a bay window, make a window seat anyway! @sandy bingaman this would be awesome in your living room.
