Decorating ideas for the awkward, empty spaces in your home
Transform an unused or awkward space in your home into something special
Every home has that awkward spot – corners, under the stairs, in a corner, end of the hallway, entrances – that one doesn’t quite know what to do with. Leave it bare and it looks like something’s missing or fill it with whatever spare furniture you have lying around and run the risk of a decorating disaster.
These tricky spaces require careful consideration or, in some cases, an expert’s opinion, in order to make the most out of this unused area and transform it into either a practical or decorative feature – or both, if you’re lucky!
From bar carts to bench seats and smart study nooks, here are some clever ways to fill the void in your unfinished home.
First, what are these usual spaces?
- UNDER THE STAIRS
- HIGH CEILINGS
- BAY WINDOWS
- END OF A HALLWAY
Here are some fun ideas that can not only give your home a beautiful feel, but also create more utility space for your family to enjoy.
When stuck for ideas don’t forget a good built in but open bookcase can do wonders – under the staircase or in a corner. Creating a dynamic range of colourful spines and at the same time working extremely well as a sound absorber. A book-laden home always looks very appealing.
