But is this the only possible solution? And is it always possible to build a house. Many times we have either a rented house or a house build by someone else without some bits matching our taste and others completing standing out.
This section is explicitly about these small hindrances that come
in our way. If you are stuck with odd nooks and corners in your
home then these decorating tips is just the answer you require.
Whether it is the empty space below a staircase or that unnecessary
and protruding pillar in the living
room, the solutions are right here. Read on and make the best
use of these unused places in your home.
Decorating corridors is more or less the problem of every household. The long empty passage way always seems to give us a boring feeling. But just on the contrary, corridors are a very useful space in your house. So letís see how to transform these corridors to something attractive and fun.
The first thing one needs to remember when working on corridors is; this is one place of your house that is alive and active. People are always moving in and out of your corridors. So give your corridors a picture gallery look. You can put paintings, family photographs and murals as wall decor. Add lamps at little distances to give a soft and dramatic look to your corridors.
If you find this decorating tip not so appealing then how about adding some artifacts and flower arrangements complete with soft yellow lighting. If your corridor is wide enough, one can even go for a bookshelf. To complete the feel, put some heavy drapes at the end of the corridor. This is give depth to your decoration.
Staircases are always a problem. Most of the times, the space below the staircases are turned into a storage area giving a shabby appearance to your decor. If you really require a storage space, build a sliding cabinet with racks to store your brooms and shoes. This will give your space a neater look and at the same time give you adequate space to keep your stuff.
If space is not a problem, then do something more creative with that empty space. You can put a wallpaper of scenery to give a feeling of depth. Go for some dim lighting, according to the theme of your wallpaper.
One can also create a recreation corner below the staircase. Throw in some cushions, proper lighting and a potted plant or two and build a world of its own. If there is space, then put a small coffee table and chair and snuggle up with a book. Beanbags are also a great way to go for making a trend statement.
