Every house has its fair share of empty corners and neglected spaces, particularly if you decide on a decorating style which is very much focused on the centre of the room. Sometimes, these empty spaces can look perfectly fine as they are, but there may be times where you find the emptiness just too unbalanced in line with the rest of the room.
There are many ways that you can fill blank spaces in your home, whether you build in corner shelves for some extra storage or utilise indoor plants to add some life and colour, so there is no reason for you to be worried if you do have empty spaces in your home. There are some great ways that you can make the most of this blank space and solve a lot of your decor problems, whilst also making the area much more useful.
Use Statement Objects To Their Potential
We all have a room in our home which we just love. No matter if it is a comfortable and relaxing space or the hub of your home, there is bound to be one area which you just don’t know what to do with. If you leave it bare, then it seems as though something is missing and if you fill it with furniture pieces which you already have then it may pose a decorating disaster.
These kinds of tricky spaces in our home need careful consideration, so take a look at the rest of the room and try to evaluate just what is missing. Often, it may just need a statement piece to make this underutilised area of the room come back to life, so consider adding a statement chair, stylish lamp and lighting or a nice evergreen plant.
Add Some Love To Your Home Office
When people work from home, they tend to work in a space which is just there to serve a purpose and quickly becomes unloved and unappreciated. Home offices are often bland and used as dumping ground for stuff from around the rest of the house. This not only has an affect on your productivity levels but your mood also.
It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint and some new furniture can do to a home office, but make the most out of dead space within the room and create a haven which is both relaxing and motivating. Get rid of the clutter and install a smart shelving unit which also doubles as a desk. This gives you plenty of storage and space to work with, whilst also making the most of blank wall space.
Fill The Empty Space Above Your Bed
Whilst you may have the perfect headboard and bedding, you may find that your bedroom still feels as though it is lacking something. Many of us have an empty area of wall above our beds and it is quite a tricky space to know exactly what to do with it, but there are plenty of ways in which you can fill this often unused space. Horizontal mirrors or artwork is a popular choice, but if you want something with a little more wow factor, then consider vertical panels or a wall mural instead. You could even use a bold colour or intricately designed wallpaper for the wall which your bed is on.
Enjoy Your Garden Again
Now that summer is here, many of us want to spend our evenings and weekends relaxing in our gardens whilst making the most of the good weather. But, a common issue that most of us find with our gardens is that they’re just a little… bland. Knowing how to make the most out of blank space in your home is one thing, but when it comes to our garden spaces, many of us soon become overwhelmed.
One of the best ways you can make the most out of underused space in your garden is by separating it into zones, or by creating an extension of your home onto your patio or decking area. Add patio garden furniture, stylish outdoor accessories, eye-catching plants and you’ll find you have a relaxing space to enjoy. You could also use border plants, gravel and wood chippings to create natural paths and zones within your garden.
Create A Functional Area
Having plenty of room and space is all well and good to have in your home, providing you know what to do with it. If you struggle to find a use or function for a blank space in your home, then why not transform it into a functional area? A bare corner of your dining room can soon be overhauled by simply adding in a bar or drinks trolley, complete with stylish accessories or antique drinking glasses.
If the middle of your living room looks a bit empty, then the first thing we tend to choose is a coffee table. Whilst these are great and do provide a useful function, why not add in an ottoman footstool instead? These can be accessorised with stylish throws and other soft furnishings and is likely to get more use than a coffee table when you want to lounge or need extra seating.
