7 ways to use that extra space


7 ways to use that extra space

We have rounded up ten unexpected ways to use every weird corner in your home:


Slim, open shelving is a great way to get the most out of limited square footage in a kitchen or in a hallway. Also, you can stash extra seating such as stools underneath!

Hanging swings

A hanging swing will be perfect for corners in your living area. Work a little extra seating into your space with a hanging swing.

Hanging Planters

Hanging potted plants not only add a splash of colour to an area, it could bring new life to a cramped corner.


These serves as a creative shelving option for unused corners in kitchens and bathrooms. The space created could be used to store spice bottles or shampoos and conditioners.


A chair doesn’t have to be extra seating. Store throw blankets or even table linens atop a low-slung seat so you can appreciate them even when they’re not in use.

Tension Rods

If you are lacking storage, put up a short tension rod on which you can hang S-hooks for easy access to jackets, umbrellas and carry-on bags.


Tight corners need not be reserved for floor lamps or coffee tables. Consider a slim mirror to open up your room and serve as additional storage.
