It's a snowy and very windy winter here in the Northeast and many of us are nesting in our warm homes taking on home projects that keep us busy and bring calm to our living environments. What better time than this to create a command center in your home?
You may wonder, "What is a command center?"
A command center is a designated space/location in your home to keep all of your family's important information. It's usually located in the kitchen where family most often gathers together but can be in any shared spaces including hallways and mudrooms.
Command centers come in all kinds of sizes and shapes to fit your needs and spaces. Some command centers are elaborate with desks, chalkboards, cork boards, hanging files, clipboards, a clock, bookshelves, chore charts, homework bins, white board calendars, hanging baskets, shelving, message centers, magnetic boards, key hooks, and more.
Other command centers are more simple in design and include a small table, sorting trays, hanging file container, baskets and pen/pencil cup.
Elaborate or simple, command centers serve the purpose of creating and maintaining calm from the chaos of every day living for you and your loved ones.
A picture is worth a thousand words and these command center images were found doing a quick Internet search.
