Do you have some large, lengthy rooms that feel a bit echoey? It’s more of a common problem then you’d think! Maybe you’re getting tired of looking at ‘negative’ space, and feel embarrassed when guests come over? Then this is the post for you. Of course, we’re usually after a bit more space in our homes – all that clutter takes over sometimes!
But when you’ve got a lot of blank walls and not much furniture other than the staples like a sofa, a bed, and a coffee table, you might be after ideas right now. Thankfully, we’ve got a few below that’ll help make your home look more like domestic paradise and far less like an empty warehouse.
Stretch Out Your Seating
If you’ve got a large living room on your hands, it might just take another sofa to make things look more in perspective. Fitting another couch into the space means more seating room, more areas to nap during the day, and more seats for crashing party guests to sleep on when everyone’s drunk at the end of the night – what could be better? If that’s not an option, you could always add in a couple more armchairs or beanbags, and just make the floor less noticeable overall.
Fit a Wardrobe
If there’s a big wall of space in your bedroom, that’s otherwise completely plain and colourless, why not look into built in wardrobes and how they can transform your space? A good, fitted wardrobe can mean endless storage space in your home, and when you’ve got little storage elsewhere that’s invaluable! Measure up the space first, make sure there’s good walking room, and you’re all done.
Decorate a Bookshelf or Sideboard
It’s always nice to have a fully decorated bookshelf or surface of some kind in one corner of the room – and bonus points if you have a matching one on the other side! After all, this is a good space to put all your trinkets and knick knacks, your books and notepads, and all of your semi precious and precious jewels and vases. Give them some space to show them off and they’ll do the rest of the heavy lifting for you.
Split Up the Space
Finally, if there’s too much space on one side and not enough on the other, just split the space into two. No, you don’t need to get another wall built in there, but you can set up a divider to make the room seem like it’s multi-functional. Plus, if you’ve always wanted your own office to work from home in, this is your chance to make one! And a split room gives your home more dimension, and makes it feel more valuable; you could finally have a dining room after all!
If you’ve got a lot of empty space in your home, fill it up with just a few neat furniture tricks. All you need is another sofa, maybe a room divider, and even just a desk.
