Decorating your living space, especially with so much more downtime than you’re used to, can be one of the most thrilling ways to spend your days. Whether you want to completely renovate the bedroom or simply add a few new accessories to the kitchen, there are so many simple opportunities to bring new life to your home via interior decoration.
Perhaps the space you want to redecorate is one you’ve never tackled before, however. Maybe it’s the area in the home you’ve generally considered an empty space without meaning, one that never seemed to need any attention in the past but now is screaming for consideration. We’re talking about the nooks and crannies, those small spaces in your home that don’t seem like much with a quick glance, but now seem to need more attention than you’ve ever provided.
If you’re interested in decorating the small, forgotten spaces of your home but you’re not sure where to start, you’ve come the right place:
Make it a personal space
It’s easy to assume that home redesign means buying new accessories and decorations to fill the void of a small space. According to designer and franchise owner Bonnie Pressley, however, you might already have all of the pieces to the puzzle right in your home. Nooks and crannies present the perfect opportunity to get creative and make this place personal with meaningful items you already have.
“If you have special art, plants or statuary, displaying those items make it personal, both for the homeowner and guests,” she shared.
It doesn’t have to take so much thought
If you’re not interested in creating your own personal sanctuary, there are plenty of other options for decorations that won’t take as much thought. Simply creating a space that provides functionality can be all you need to complete the space.
“Simple items that can also complete a space would be a chair and small table with a lamp, a bench or a table displaying photos,” said Pressley. “Items that give it a true purpose, such as a cozy reading corner, always add character to a home.”
Remember: Sometimes, less is more.
You don’t have to go above and beyond with the small spaces in your home. Sometimes, a few simple photos or accessories can do the trick.
“Not every nook and cranny has to be decorated!” said Pressley. “Allowing the eye to rest on occasion can be more comfortable.”
