I love the idea of discovering new, unused spaces in your home and making them functional (and pretty). This will be especially true as we go forward settling into our home that we bought with three kids but will raise five in, instead. I’m not a big fan of unused spaces, which is a good thing—since we’ll need every square inch.
Here’s an example in our last home. There was no mudroom but an abundance of backpacks and jackets. So, we used this small hallway by the back door to serve as a drop off point for everybody’s stuff and I added the chalkboard for notes, messages, etc. I’m working on a similar set up in our house now.
Here are some other great examples of how you can take a small, unused space and make it a functioning part of your home:
