Fun fun Storage!
Homes can be a nightmare to decorate – you have to juggle your budget with your needs and your choice of style, color, and theme. It can be even more of a nightmare if you have small rooms with more than the usual number of corners or walls, or if you have large open plan rooms, such as a living room, dining room, and kitchen all in one space. How do you even start to furnish somewhere that isn’t a straightforward rectangular shape? Well, there are several different ways you can approach the awkward spaces in your home. The first thing you’ll need to do is measure everything meticulously. It may sound obvious, but getting the dimensions of all your rooms – and the odd spaces inside them – will help you out greatly when you come to do your furniture shopping. If you’re trying to kit out a living area, it may be worth looking at the idea of a modular sofa. With their contemporary look and ease of moving around the pieces, these sofas are perfect for any home that has space issues or strangely shaped rooms. Think about individual or ‘accent’ armchairs as well – these can either add on to existing sitting areas or create a whole new area by themselves. Match them with a lamp, table, and other small items of furniture to create a little chill-out area. Large open plan areas can benefit from a room divider screen – these come in a wide range of sizes and styles, so you can fit it in with the rest of the décor – and make sure to keep your rooms clutter-free by using storage units and a bookcase here and there. Whatever type of odd spaces you may have in your home, there are always ways to get around them; all you need to do is be creative and think outside the box.
Wooden boxes are also an excellent idea for storage and full of personality.
Vintage Suitciases are a fun way to store your blankets and magazines in your living room.
