Store Controllers On (Or Under!) the Coffee Table

We spend so much time trying to hide all of our home gaming peripherals. What would happen if we embraced XBox controllers and Wii-motes as part of our lives once and for all?

Embrace your inner geek and stop trying to hide all of your video game peripherals.

These two homes we spotted on Flicr don't try to hide their XBox controllers or Wiimotes—they're proudly displayed on or near under the coffee table in the center of their media room.

Think about it—you're not worried about a remote control citting front and center on the table, so why would you stress about finding a dedicated home for the video game controllers? It's silly!

Instead, leave them out! Take a cue from these rooms and keep your remotes tidy on the table. Or, you could invest in a Wii-coozie: It keeps your Wiimotes in line without hiding them away from easy access.
