20 Best Family Command Center Layouts for Busy Families

How to make a command center

Have you been trying to find a way to keep up with everything going on at both work and home? 

I totally understand

You think you have everything under control until you mix up pajama day with show and tell day. 

Wait! That’s never happened to you?

It’s the absolute worse! The teacher laughs at you and explains pajama day was on the previous month’s calendar and assures you your child won’t look out of place. Even though you both know she will. Facepalm!

After that day we started using a family organization station AKA a family command center, and haven’t looked back. 

What I’ve learned along the way is that your command center design is just as important as using it consistently. 

Today is all about choosing the best command center layout for your family. Grab a cup of coffee, put your feet up, and let’s get started!

Family Command Center Ideas

Have you ever heard the saying “There is more than one way to skin a cat”? The same can be true for designing a family command center. It’s amazing the creative things people are able to come up with. 

Everyone’s space is different and so are the problems that we are trying to solve with our family command centers. I want you to have different options to consider when choosing your command center layout. So, I turned to the most gifted people I know, the moms of Instagram. 

You may not find the exact blueprint of your house but you can use some of the elements you come across to help customize your command center. 

Best Command Center Design  

The family command centers are organized based on location and size. If you already know where you want yours to go, see what other moms have done in that same room. Use these ideas to create a layout that’s attractive and functional for your family.

Entryway Command Center

A large entryway or mudroom is the perfect place for a family command center. Everyone has to pass through it at some point. This drastically increases the likelihood that they’ll also pay attention to the stuff you write and post there.

Command Center Wall Organizer 

If you have a lot of space, another option is to use the entire wall as a family organization board. It takes up of room, but it also gives you a lot of space to use to your advantage.
