Loose Change, Corralled

This Atlanta great room is packed with simple solutions to keep almost every tabletop surface clutter free and neatly organized. In addition to looking great, this small stone box keeps spare change hidden from view.

Magazines on Display

Need easy access to magazines or favorite coffee table books, but worried you'll clutter up end tables and coffee tables? Clear acrylic magazine racks keep everything easily identifiable and within arms reach.

Remote Control Round Up

Between digital video recorders, DVD players and cable boxes, most homeowners have more remote controls than they know what to do with. Keep all remotes on the coffee table, but hidden inside of decorative boxes.

Decoy Books

An excellent way to keep wallets, jewelry and valuables stored neatly but hidden from view is with decoy books. When grouped together with real books, the decoys look like part of a collection, helping keep important items and documents safe.

Taming Open Storage

Open storage console tables often have large bottom shelves that can easily collect clutter. Consider grouping decorative storage boxes along these shelves for easy access to things you need on a daily basis, but don't necessarily want to display.

Sticky Storage

TV remote controls are one of the easiest things to lose due to their size. Keep your remote tucked away yet close to seating areas by securing it to the side of an end table with Velcro.

Compartments for Tech

Maximize space inside of your drawers with drop-in compartments. These are excellent for organizing tech accessories such as chargers, cords and batteries, and they also offer the perfect little niche for storing car keys.

A Place for Playing Cards

Keep playing cards nearby yet neatly tucked away by storing them in decorative tabletop boxes. Should guests arrive unexpectedly, you'll have an easy conversation starter ready to go.

Wire Management

With the amount of gadgets we use daily, our living spaces can become overrun with unsightly wires. Cord concealers help you hide laptop or smartphone cords by keeping them flat and fastened to nearby furniture.
