Empty Spaces

Do you have an empty corner or wall and no idea what to do with it?

Here are some ideas for making use of the awkward spaces in your home!

 

ART

If you have space to spare, adding an art piece is a great way to fill it! In Astoria, there is no shortage of unique art and artists to choose from. Art is great way to create focus in a room by drawing the eye to the areas where they are placed. Art can bring purpose to a room that may have neglected space.

 

PLANTS

When in doubt, add a plant! Now maybe not just any plant. Think of something that you can take care of indoors and isn’t an eye sore. Succulents have grown in popularity over the last year. They are easy to take care of and many breeds come in different colors that together can create a beautiful arrangements.

 

WET BAR

Whether you want one for use as a mixing station or a caffeine station, a wet bar can make use of empty space. Most wet bars have a sink station but don’t think that you need to add plumbing to make the space work. These areas can be as simple or elaborate as you like. You can get creative with storage by putting in shelves on the wall near by, plugging in a mini fridge underneath, and installing some small useful storage devices.

 

LIGHTING

Corners tend to gather shadows. Make use of the space to add in extra light! Adding an extra floor lamp or small lamp on an end table can make use of random corners. It can also make more sense to add in soft lights to areas like the living and bedroom areas.

 

SHELVING

Installing wall shelves or just placing bookshelves in an empty corner or wall can give you extra storage and decorative areas. Leave some space at the bottom of shelving to stash an ottoman or small seating chairs for when company comes over. Use the bottom of bookcases for storage.

 

SEATING

Speaking of seating, empty areas can be used for a meeting or lounge area. Create a personal space for you to use next to a window or use for when you have guests. If you have the support for it, try to hang an indoor hammock or hanging chair!

 

ANTIQUES

If you love to peruse antique stores, maybe look more into what items would work for some empty spots in your home. Whatever you find, make sure that your antiques are on display and out of the way. You can gather unique finds that enhance the personality of your home and create some conversation to visitors.

Don’t Let the Internet Replace Your Agent

Let’s face it. It’s 2018 and the term “There’s an app for that” rings very true. You can download apps to help you get a ride, have dinner delivered, or even check your health symptoms without ever actually speaking to another human being. For to sake of convenience these features are great but not when some of these tech trends try to creep into real estate.

Most of us can agree that simplifying some aspects of real estate would be a great thing but attempting to replace your real estate agent could lead to disaster. It’s true you can look on your phone or computer to search for a home or look up market data but at some point in your journey you will need a professional’s input.

The information you find online is just a simplified version of what actually goes in the process of buying or selling a home. Almost the same way that searching medical symptoms can give you a simplified description of illnesses but you are still expected to seek a doctor for treatment.

Although real estate agents and doctors are not the same thing, the industry and it’s legalities are similar because it needs to be taken seriously. Looking for a home and wanting to make an offer can be exciting but you will need a professional to help you with contacts and lead you to making that house your home.

Same if you want to sell your home! If you decide to put your home on the market, how will you know an offer that comes in is fair or not? It’s not just about the sale price of the home but the contracts that come into place after that. How will you know you are not being taken advantage of?

Once contracts fall apart, negotiations can’t be agreed on, and emotions are at an all time high you are going to wish you had an agent fighting for you by your side. So use the internet to take advantage of its amazing resources but don’t let it replace your agent.

Sometimes technology can’t do everything a professional can!
