Redecorating a room is always a fun activity, but it might be quite annoying when you think that you are finished, and you realize that there is something missing. In this season there are numerous trendy items that are decorative and useful in the same time.
If this is your case, you could be looking for an armoire. The advantage of this item is double: it offers a nice visual element to the room and in the same time it offers space for storage. You can use it in just any room.
For example you might use it in the living room to store electronics. Hide the dishes and the silverware in an armoire in the dining room, or store those clothes that you rarely use in the bedroom.
In the kitchen it might be used as a pantry, while in the bathroom you might use it to store towels and linens.
If you don’t really like the idea of having a sofa, you might opt for a daybed. The advantage of it is that it is multipurpose.
This might be the perfect item for a smaller house, because it might be used as a sofa during the day and as a bed during the night.
If you position the daybed in the middle of an open space, it might be used to delimitate the “rooms”. For example you could create a boundary between the living room and the dining room. In case you use decorative cushions, it can become a chic decorative element of the room.
One of the most adaptable elements that you can find on the market is a chest of drawers. You might use this item in any room, and besides offering a nice sight, it also offers storage space that is extremely important in case of smaller houses.
Very few people think about having a bench in their homes, but the idea seems to gain popularity this year. It might be used as an alternative for the dining chairs, or it might become an extra perk for the hallway or the living room. You might “hide” the bench under a console table to offer it depth, but occasionally it might be used for extra seating for the guests.
An ottoman could also be used in just any home. You might rest your feet on it, but in case it has the right size, you could also use it as seating.
