Blank Wall Solutions for Your Home

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

There are many ways to decorate the walls of your home, and sometimes rearranging wall art, photos, decorative accents or even painting can offer a fresh look in a room without too much work. Here are some blank wall solutions for when you find yourself in a decorating rut.

Wallpaper or Paint

Wallpaper has had its ups and downs in home decorating, but using it, like any other home accent, is all about personal preference. Use wallpaper to create an accent wall, or find a subtle pattern to decorate a whole room. The same goes for a new paint color; in both cases, consult a professional to learn the correct methods for application and to gain insight on complementing colors.

Gallery Wall of Photos

Gallery walls are an easy go-to for a blank wall, as chances are you already have photographs displayed around the house. Mix or match sizes, textures and even colors of frames to fill a wall with personal mementos. Take a look at some of our favorite gallery wall looks here.

Organization

Especially in a hallway, mudroom, kitchen or small space, a blank wall can be helpful when there is not a lot of extra space for odds and ends. Wall hooks come in many sizes, shapes and styles for a variety of uses. Use a single wall hook for pet leashes or keys, and use multiple for backpacks, jackets and larger items. Cupboards provide a great storage solution for items you want to keep tucked away out of sight, or items you don’t need on a daily basis. Adding these to a wall can clear up floor or closet space in your home while offering decorative appeal.

Seasonal Decoratives

Of course, your blank walls can be filled with seasonal decoratives that change throughout the year. Switch out holiday wreaths for metal wall art in the shape of a heart, add a St. Patrick’s Day sign and then decorate with spring prints and imagery, switch to Fourth of July decor and then to fall, and before you know it the holiday season will begin again. This is a great way to redecorate without making big changes to your home, which will exude a festive feeling all year long.

Kitchen Storage and Surfaces: Carts and Tables

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

Three Shelf Kitchen CartSome kitchens need more storage space; some need more counter space; and there are definitely many kitchens needing both. We have a few kitchen cart and table ideas to utilize in your kitchen depending on its needs – take a look below.

Wheels…

If you need something portable, especially if you are short on space already, a cart with wheels could be your best option.

Drop Leaf Kitchen Cart in Natural

These two examples offer similar features but have a few key differences. The white cart offers both open and hidden storage; the shelves are great for mixing bowls, cooking utensils, cookbooks, and other items you use on a daily basis. The hidden storage can be used for food, less commonly used appliances and more, and there’s even a drying rod for hanging towels up to dry.

We also love this additional wheeled cart for its drop-leaf surface; giving you more or less counter space depending on your task. A large cabinet and a drawer offer ultimate hidden storage, and like its counterpart, there is a drying rod for towels (this cart is also available in white). Another option would have space to store mugs and an extra shelf.

Cupboard Table in Black…or No Wheels

Stationary tables also offer the stylish space you are looking for. The rustic Cupboard Table features a spacious counter top surface but is still slim enough to fit into your kitchen. The cupboard is perfect for baking items, cookbooks and other necessities, and with so many color options to choose from you can complement or contrast the space just the way you want to.

Berwick Counter Table in Walnut

If you’re needing just a bit more tabletop room but have plenty of storage cupboards, a counter table is perfect for you. At the right height you can prepare meals or add an extra eating space within your kitchen (especially if the table comes with seating).

How have you maximized your kitchen space with a cart, table or extra cupboard(s)? Share your ideas and let us know if you’ve used our tips in your home decorating projects.
