How to Create a Family Command Center

One way to simplify your home is to create a family command center. This is a place where you can conveniently store everyday items. Family command center walls can not only be a way to keep your family organized, but it can also be a stylish statement wall in your home. A place for you to show off your style while being organized at the same time!

When designing our families command center, I wanted a place where I could hang our keys, school lunch boxes and book bags, as well as a place to put all of the important papers that come home from school. In addition, with juggling 5 schedules, I wanted a place to keep track of all of our family activities. The calendar keeps us all on the same page and allows each family member to see the months scheduled appointments and commitments.

However, I did not want the space to look cluttered or in other words a “hot mess!” So by creating a command center wall you get the opportunity to design a functional, but also stylish place.

Here is a 4 step guide to creating a stylish and functional family command center.

Creating a Family Command Center

Step 1: Decide on the Purpose of the Space

The 1st step to creating a family command center is to decide what you want the space to hold. For example, are you looking for a place to store bags or coats? Do you need a calendar for appointments? How about a place to hold your keys or more importantly now all the masks we have! Once you decide on what you want to store in the space you have, then you can begin the design process.

Step 2: Begin Designing the Space

Now that you now what you want to store in your family command center, you can begin to pick out the functional pieces. I started with the “stay awhile” sign (shown above) and began to choose decor and organizational pieces that matched the sign. I find that the best place to begin when designing a place in your home, is to choose 1 piece. Possibly a picture or sign or piece of furniture that you love and then search for coordinating pieces to match. In other words, you need your “inspiration” piece. Once you find that piece you can’t live without, then you have your inspiration and you can begin to pull together your whole design look or theme.

Step 3: Choose your Layout

Now that you have chosen all of your pictures and organizational wall pieces, then lay them all out on the floor and choose your wall layout. It helps to move the pieces around to see a few looks before deciding on the final product. Tip: I find that laying all of the pieces together on a flat surface, helps you to see how it will look on your wall, without messing up your walls!

Step 4: Build the Command Center Wall

It is now time to hang up all of your items and pictures. Once you have all of the pieces hung up on the wall then you can begin to decorate and organize. Have fun with your design style!
