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.
This cozy family room with curvy seating looks—and feels—very relaxing. The ottoman does double duty. serving as a foot stool or coffee table. This cozy den features a rotating bubble chair. plush rug and plenty of oversized floor cushions. which can be placed in front of the fire for lounging.Although the large chaise sectional is cozy. the most popular seats in the house are the two ceiling-mounted swings.
Another benefit of floating shelves: they fit almost anywhere. Place them in nooks. over bookcases. under stairs. over the sofa or even over doorways.Take stock of everything you ownLarge corner sofas like this one work well in small spaces.Take a look around your house and decide what you don't need. For instance. do you really need that huge decorative lamp.
Don't limit yourself to the walls of your home. If you have outdoor space. use it. Setting out a few chairs where you can relax and enjoy the balmy spring evenings expands your living space to the outdoors. where you'll find an abundance of brightness. You get extra points if you can set up your outdoor living area near an indoor one. Leaving the door open between the spaces connects the two. bringing that fresh feeling of the outdoors in.
