Are you a fan of family command centers? I know I am. As a lover of everything organization, I often find myself ogling at pictures of beautiful family command centers on Pinterest. Aren’t they super neat? They make you feel like you’ve got all your family affairs under control.

As I much I loved them in the pictures, I myself hadn’t jumped on the bandwagon yet. After a couple of missed appointments, delayed school projects, and the endless search for keys, pens, and scissors (we have 6 pairs of scissors, but can never find one when we need it!), I decided that my family desperately needed a family command center.

So, I went hunting on the internet for inspiration and rounded up a bunch of family command centers that are not just amazing, but super inspiring! Oh, by the way, if you don’t already know what a family command center is (highly unlikely, I know!), let me tell you.

WHAT IS A FAMILY COMMAND CENTER?

A family command center is a space you create in your home, where the entire family can see and access it. It can be useful in simplifying your family’s day to day, helping you keep track of:

  • Schedules
  • Papers (Bills, Receipts, Mail etc.,)
  • Schoolwork
  • Keys
  • Stationery
  • Glasses

The list is not limited to the above. You pick what works best for your family.

Now that you know what a family command center is, let me share the gems I found. If you are looking to set one up in your own home, I am sure you will find something that inspires you in the below list. Some of them are a few years old I think, but still applicable and functional in 2020.
