Places with Potential

From the foot of your bed to the bottom of the stairs, there are tons of underutilized areas scattered throughout every home. These ignored nooks and idle crannies are chalk-full of practical potential, just waiting to be put to better use. Join us as we visit the forgotten areas of your home, note their numerous possibilities, and take full advantage of each space. Because no matter how much square footage a home has, there’s always room for a little more!

Tucked Away

We begin the search for more space where we need it most–the bedroom! Despite being one of the most overworked and cluttered rooms in a home, there lies a lot of spatial potential in the bedroom. Take the foot of the bed for example; this area is often empty, yet it’s the perfect place for additional storage or seating. And with multipurpose furniture pieces like ottomans, it can do double the work! A pair of comfortable ottomans are great for storing your extra clean sheets or out-of-seasonal clothes, and it makes for a comfy place to put on your shoes in the morning!

Under Cover

Even as you walk from your bedroom down to the main floor, there lies potential beneath your feet…that’s right–the area under the steps is chock-full of functional possibilities! And while there may not be enough room to turn that cupboard under the stairs into a small guestroom, there’s almost always enough space for further storage or a small workstation! With some hanging shelves, deep floating drawers, and a few stools you can have yourself a functional little workspace in no time.

Pro Tip: To make the space even more practical, cover the wall with chalkboard paint! Even if you’re not writing long-form math functions, having a space to leave little reminders is a huge help.

The Odd Spot

We continue our space exploration not in a particular room, rather a particular feature; the infamous, awkward nook! In almost every home there lies at least one of these odd spaces–a rut in an unfortunate room–that disturbs the flow of the floor plan. And although it’s a difficult void to fill, if you use it right, that awkward nook can turn out to be one of the most functional (and comfortable) spaces in your home. To make the most of this oddly shaped area, fill it with a custom couch and overhead shelving. It’s going to take a little extra searching for a piece of furniture that fits, but once that awkward gap is filled, your home will feel much more natural and spacious.

Up in The Air

As our journey comes to a close, we look to one final place to add more space–up! Areas that are above eye-level are often ignored, but just because a space is out of sight, doesn’t mean it should be out of mind! Look to those open areas above your cabinets, windows and doors to add square footage to your home. Add a few floating shelves up high, and you’ll free up tons of storage space down low.

Pro Tip: For a more flawless look, build the shelves right into your wall! Making the additional storage space a permanent part of your home will increase the value, and add some serious convenience.
