While re-designing your family or living room, you should consider your storage needs. Be it your furniture or your cabinets, you have to consider the space they occupy and how much storage they provide. Its all about figuring out a theme which depicts your personality and is, as welcoming as you are to your guests. Add a personal touch to your room, by painting a special accent wall, let your kids handprint it as it becomes your own memorabilia. Hang a collage of your family photos, put a series of your joyful moments and make it your special wall. The idea is to make it more personalized not just with accessories but with your own creativity.
