Sometimes when decorating our space we need to think outside the box. At times a room may be too small, or even too big. One good way to overcome decorating/storage obstacles is to find ways to use unused space.
The extra space beneath this window is utilized by attaching a small bookcase to the wall for extra storage. It also doubles as a console table.
Many of us have attics that are filled with old boxes and junk we don’t really need. Clear out the space and transform it into something useful, like the walk-in closet you’ve always wanted.
I’ve been seeing so many creative ways people have been using the space underneath their stairwells. I like how David Nosella added a built-in bookcase under this staircase, using the unused space for a decorative element in the living room.
This extra closet space is turned into a small home office. Simply attach a couple of shelves to the walls, and you’re set. You can even add a chair, like a smaller stool, that can easily slide under the desk to completely hide the office when the doors are closed.
Here is another use of an extra closet (I’m jealous of anyone who has an extra closet): Turn it into a makeshift laundry room.
The vertical space of a tiny nook is utilized with tall, narrow shelving.
