8 Small-Space Spots You’re Forgetting to Decorate
You often go all out in decorating different parts of your home. Your main objective is to maximize available spaces as much as possible and leave no blank areas. What we don’t know is that we also forget to notice small spaces in between walls or furniture and they could look boring over time.
If ever you’re asking how you can design these free parts without overcrowding your home, read on for tips!
1. UNDER THE STAIRS
If you have a staircase at home, you would have wondered how you’re going to fill that potential empty space. Place a curved sofa on the corner, preferably one with eye-catching embellishments. Add multi-coloured pillows and a glass center table, as well as a medium-sized painting to complete the look.
2. FOOT OF YOUR BED
You could convert your bed’s edge into something useful by placing a small desk which could serve as a mini-office. Just remember to keep it free of objects that can be kicked off of it when you’re sleeping. You could also put an upholstered backless chair instead of a desk or perhaps a wooden ‘treasure chest’ where you can store belongings.
3. FRONT OF BOOKSHELVES
For a more comfortable reading experience, you may put plush couches and chairs right in front of the shelves, all while seeing to it that you leave enough space for walking. You could also place a ladder if you have shelves that extend from the floor to the ceiling, or book trolleys that can be used for multiple book selections.
Decorate blank wall spaces in an entryway by hanging paintings or photo frames. You can also mount an intricately-detailed vanity mirror or install cup lights for equal lighting. Push a high slim rectangular table against the wall, preferably one that matches its color. Put a vase on top of it or any other furniture that you fancy.
5. FRONT OF A WINDOW
Claim your own territory when reading or meditating by placing a chair or a small comfortable couch in front of your window. Give it a relaxing look by adding greenery or flowers on the window pane; be creative and use colourful mugs instead of pots. If there are no panes, hang sheer curtains.
You can make your hallway look more spacious by using narrow furniture in solid colours. It depends on your choice whether you want a minimalistic or printed design,but the key objective is to keep a clean and well-spaced look for your hallway. Put strategic furnishings like medium-sized chairs or tables, or antique paintings on the walls. If you want a more classic design, you may opt to cover the corridor with a carpet and pick a chandelier that would complement its theme.
7. ABOVE CABINETS
This applies to all hanging cabinets in your home. Start by dusting off dust from the surface and cleaning the surrounding wall since these parts are not cleaned frequently. Put vases, fine china or other collection that you wish to put on display on top of the cabinets. Arrange them by size, color or any way you want it.
8. FRONT PANELS OF DOORS
Doors are the first ones to be seen before entering a room so it’s important that you also play them up a little. You can hang wind chimes, dream catchers or anything that can amplify your door’s appearance. For bedroom doors, you can put decorative stickers. If you want a more sophisticated look, ask a handyman to cut out a portion of your door and fill the space with a stained-glass window with the pattern of your choice.
SETTING UP SPECIAL SPACES
Don’t ignore small spaces because they can turn out to be highlights of your home! Sometimes all you have to do is rearrange furniture so it will be evenly distributed around your house. Remember to keep everything balanced so the designing plans would turn out good. Better look around you now, you might find a space worth decorating!
