So before you try to cover up or fill the spaces with junk, take a look at the smart solutions below to see how you can revitalize those problematic spaces and turn them into something useful.
The Space Under The Stairs
While this is likely to be more of a hiding spot for dust-bunnies than teenage wizards, it is valuable space that you donâ€™t have to board up. Use it for storage!
Create custom storage cabinets, or if itâ€™s near the kitchen, build in a wine refrigerator or display shelves for china.
You could also build in a coat or shoe closet if the stairs are in the front entryway.
The Bedroom Too Small For A Bed
You might have an office that sometimes needs to be used as a bedroom or a bedroom that could fit a bed and nothing else.
If these issues strike a chord, then you might want to invest in a Murphy bed.
These space-saving inventions allow you to use a small space for another purpose during the day, and then miraculously have a place to sleep at night.
The Unused Closet
In some homes, youâ€™ll run across closets that just donâ€™t make sense. If you donâ€™t need it for storage, then turn it into something creative, such as a small library or toy room.
Take off the door, add adjustable shelves, build a comfortable cushioned bench and install attractive lighting. Now you and your family can curl up for story time in your new book nook.
Or put in a desk or countertop, an office chair and table lamp and use it as an office nook that can be closed off when youâ€™re not using it.
Donâ€™t write off awkward spaces in your home as lost causes. With a little ingenuity, hard work and smart design, you can create a useful area that everyone in your family can use and enjoy.
