Simple Remote Control Storage Ideas that are Actually Beautiful


Chic and practical solutions for hiding remote controls on your coffee table and where to find them. Plus hand-picked store options.

Hello!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter.  It was rainy and chilly here in Okinawa, Japan but we had a great church service and egg hunt.  

I decided to change up the living room side tables and coffee table now that the Easter decor is put away.  My first mission was to find a couple of boxes that the remotes could fit in.  Is that a pet peeve for you too?

I arranged the coffee table decor around two wooden boxes that were the perfect size.  No more ugly remotes!  When looking for the perfect size container for your remotes or game controllers, make sure to check discount stores like TJMax and thrift or antique stores.

But first, shop your house! You might surprise yourself with a discovery that’s perfect for remotes.

Search for jewelry boxes, decorative storage containers, and antique cigar boxes. Boxes with textures like wood or woven material and pretty patterns are also options.

Update: Here’s how it looked in our next two homes!

More Spring Updates in Our New Rental!

I placed a pencil box on a sofa side table and potted a grocery store plant in a beautiful used candle holder. A couple of “dollar” store trinkets update the vignette for Spring.

Our curtains in the living room are another pet peeve.   We have Japanese rods on all of our windows and doors so I wasn’t able to use my American style curtains and rods that I brought halfway around the world.  Ha! (The movers laughed too!)

We needed twelve curtains for our living area so I found inexpensive sheers at a local store.  I decided to knot them at the bottom because the length was too short and I wanted to let in all of the glorious sunlight that comes with living in Okinawa! 

I like the casualness of this look and think it says that we’re not too serious around here. 😉

The room is feeling very tropical which is totally appropriate for our Okinawan rental.  Now if only we had sub-tropical temperatures this island is known for!
