Everyone has them. It’s not unlikely that you, right now, can look up from the screen and spot surfaces with great untapped potential. To set things straight, we’ve gathered super ideas for every room of the home. A wall of inspiration, if you will.
As the launch pad of the home, your hallway is also a serious bottleneck. Going vertical means less things to slow you down and more space for the necessary stuff. Like plenty of storage, a spot to sit and put on your sneaks, wall decoration, and a vase with something fresh and pretty.
Cabinet fronts like these help create a tidier look in a room with a lot going on. Aside from style, the extra row of overhead cupboards adds massive storage capacity. Perfect for things you use less often, but still want close at hand.
There’s just something about the colours, textures and shapes of jars filled with food waiting to be cooked. Why not make a show of it and do a full-blown, pantry-like kitchen wall, offering both the ingredients and the inspiration to get going?
There’s both logic and aesthetics to letting the walls of a room reflects its role in the home. When it comes to living rooms, that principle leads to a broad mix of things – great! With board games, books, showpieces and entertainment at a glance – wall colour can be an effective way to visually tie it all together – you don’t just have inspiration for a rainy day, but style to boot.
By putting your entire living room wall to use, you can create
a flexible space for work, hobbies and play in the process. Surround your desk with shelves and storage, neatly holding all you need to get stuff done. To transform for fun, slide out the table to open up the area, revealing a bench. Just pull up some extra stools for a friend-filled fika or game night.
As a place of calm and comfort, a soft interior is a good match for your bedroom. Like a discreet section of wall shelves. They work both for storage and things you simply enjoy having around in the morning. (Yes, a TV can be useful. But add a stylish curtain, so you don’t have to look at it all day.)
That feeling when there’s just too much good to look at, too much fun to do. Filling a room, big or small, with stations for different activities can do that. Pegboards and picture ledges not only let that mood climb up the walls, but also make it easy to change over time (think continuous art exhibition).
Laundry is a fickle thing. When it’s a mess, it drowns you. When it works – and it truly can – then even joy may be involved. (And if that delightful laundry wall doesn’t offer enough quality time in itself, bring a good read for in-between cycles.)
Here’s a bit of fashion-storage magic for you. When the curtains are drawn shut, it’s just a softly veiled fourth wall. Open them up and voila, the room transforms into its walk-in wardrobe alter ego. Feel free to use anywhere in your home.
