5 ways to fill an awkward space

How to Guides

Awkward spaces can be difficult to fill or even to know what to do with them to avoid them looking like empty and useless space. These empty spaces can come in different types such as a recessed wall or a protruding wall, or just a spare space in a room. Here are 5 different ways you can fill these awkward space to make use of them.

1. Console table

Console tables are a great accessory for any room and are a great place to decorate with flowers, lamps or decorative ornaments which will liven that awkward empty space up.

2. Chest of drawers

Chest of drawers will help fill that empty gap and provide extra storage. Add a mirror or a piece of art above to complete the look.

3. Statement chair

Statement chairs are a great way to add decoration in a different way. Chairs that are upholstered in patterned or colourful fabric are a great way to fill an awkward space. This will work great in a hallway or a bedroom.

4. Side table

Similar to the console table, side tables provide a great place to decorate in a variety of ways to provide an interesting focal point in your space.

5. Desk

Another way to use up an awkward space is to add a work space. Desks come in a variety of styles which will fit that awkward space perfectly and help make that awkward space not so awkward.
