A small sofa could go under that awkward outcropping. That corner behind the chair could be home to a floor lamp.Unused floor space under the stairs? Get creative! We've seen everything from chairs and reading lights. customized bookshelves. foldout desks. and TVs added to this space. Of course. a much more common (but much less fun) use for this space is basic storage.
The designer of this modern family room broke up the space into different sections. including a sitting and TV area. a cocktail area by the fireplace. and a small home library. Although this room is designed in white and light colors. all the materials are low-maintenance and easy to clean. A chalkboard is mounted behind the large sectional for messages and scribbles.
One of the best ways to organize a small space is to utilize shelving that doesn't take up floor space. That's where floating shelving comes in.With floating shelving. you can add a makeshift bookcase without taking up flooring space. You can display your valuables on floating shelves without having to add a space-consuming curio. You can even use them to hold file boxes. making them a great tool for organization.
