Thanksgiving is just around the corner, which means many homes will soon be brimming with visiting family and friends. It’s a wonderful thing to have a house full of loved ones, but sometimes a packed home can make it difficult to use certain spaces.

If you’re looking for ways to keep your full house functional, check out these helpful furniture additions that offer some easy solutions:

Entryway Furniture

Organizational additions to your entryway can keep things tidier and help you make a good first impression. Some combination of a coat rack and a spot to set non-hanging items can usually provide just the right amount of entryway storage.

For most entries an entryway table and a classic coat tree can accomplish this, easily keeping coats and bags tidy; however, for a larger foyer a hall tree can offer even more functionality with hooks, shelving and other storage.

Dining Tables

Most holiday celebrations include a meal with family or friends, so upgrading this central furniture piece can make a big difference.

If you need lots of table space for holidays, but usually prefer something more compact, consider choosing a table with the option to add extra leaves. Or, for an extra-convenient configuration, take a look at butterfly-leaf or drop-leaf tables that keep additional leaves close for easy access.

Additional Seating

Once you have adequate table space, the next concern is seating. It generally isn’t practical to have enough dining chairs on hand to seat the whole extended family – so where should everyone sit?

Dining benches are a great flexible seating solution that can accommodate varying numbers of people as needed. Many dining sets come with these for regular use, but they can also be bought separately and brought out for large gatherings.

If you prefer individual chairs, folding chairs can be life-savers that provide lots of extra seats without taking up too much space when stored. And folding chairs don’t mean that your dining style has to suffer; there are a range of designs other than the typical industrial styles, including many that perfectly mimic the look of traditional dining chairs.

Extra Sleeping Space

If guests are joining you from out of town, they’ll need somewhere to sleep – and once the guest bed is occupied, inflatable mattresses can only go so far.

A sofa bed (or hide-a-bed as they are frequently called) offers a more substantial extra bed that doesn’t take up a whole room when it isn’t needed, keeping guests comfortable and your home simplified.

Alternately, a folding guest bed or a trundle bed can be compactly stored and pulled out when needed.

Whether you choose just one of these or opt to bring new additions to multiple spaces of your home, these helpful furniture pieces can assist you in creating a more flexible space. And, a holiday-ready home makes it that much easier to fully enjoy time with friends and family!

This modern Craftsman hall tree from Home Styles makes it easy to keep shoes, jackets and bags convenient and organized by the door. 

With a broad surface and room for multiple leaf additions, this dining table from Steve Silver Company offers plenty of space for large family meals.
