Cover the couch with a bed spread or thick fabric. Spreads are more substantial than sheets and you can find them in textured fabrics. Then you don't have to worry about spills.Bean bag chairs and stools work well and save space. They are the right side for children to use as seating and games or craft supplies can be stored out of sight. Use a trunk or wood boxes with lids for a combination storage and coffee table. Top with cushions for seating.
Good storage is a key to making space saving work in kids' rooms. Choose a tall dresser with lots of deep drawers, suitable to store all your children's clothes and other items - perhaps with shelves above for books to be stacked on. Shelving doesn't have to be expensive, solid wood: wire shelving works just as well, as does melamine. Melamine furniture may often get a bad press, but when it comes to kid-proof furniture, melamine does take quite a few kicks and knocks, is cheap to purchase and cheap to replace. For other storage options, try hanging baskets from the ceiling and make use of under-bed storage for out-of-season clothes or bedding.
