As you all know by now, we’re making over Chez Gallagher one room at a time. When the time comes for my kitchen to get an overhaul, I plan to also totally revamp our command center. Since this week’s assignment in the Organize and Refine Your Home Challenge is to create a (or tweak your existing) household command center, I thought it might be useful to share some awesome household command center products that I came across while researching ideas for my own command center redesign.

HOUSEHOLD COMMAND CENTER PRODUCTS
Since one of the basic functions of your command center is to store a variety of household papers, wall bins are an important product category to start with. Lucky for us, there’s such a variety of great wall bins to choose from! With the selection of choices below, it’s easy to match your design aesthetic and achieve the functionality you need for your household.
Message Boards & Calendars
The command center serves as the central communication hub for your household. So it makes sense to include some form of family calendar (weekly or monthly), as well as a tool for sharing information among family members.
Products that support these functions include: dry erase calendars, bulletin boards, dry erase boards, magnetic boards, and chalk boards. I came across some really cool and unique product options for this category:
The command center is a great place to store and charge everyone’s devices too. Including a charging station in your command center helps to hide the cord mess and keep the flat surfaces clear. If your household has as many devices as mine does, you may need to incorporate more than one of these into your command center design!
Modular Wall Systems
I’ve been drooling over several of the modular wall systems that are on the market since I first laid eyes on them several years ago (I’m thinking there will be a Pottery Barn Daily System configuration in my future!) The beauty of modular wall systems is that you can pick and choose among all of the matching component parts to customize a system that works specifically for your family.
In my search for products, I also came across wall organizers that combine several of the storage/functionality elements into one gorgeous piece (e.g. message board & wall bin combo) that would look great no matter where your command center lives in your home.
For those of you participating in the Organize and Refine Your Home Challenge, I can’t wait to see how you incorporate these elements into your command center designs!
