How to Style an Awkward Space

Beth Rice 06/07/2017

How many times have you passed that landing or glanced at that small corner and asked yourself, what’s missing there? The character of every home is different, sometimes resulting in unique spaces that look too bare to leave alone, yet remain untouched. Here are nine Amish furniture suggestions that will help transform those misfit, hard-to-decorate spaces.

A Long, Narrow Hallway

Maintain the look of your long hallway while creating a seamless transition between adjoining rooms with a sliding barn door.

Behind the Sofa

Dress up the small space right behind the sofa by creating a display area. Feature family photos, scented candles, or plants on a custom-made sofa table like the Odyssey Sofa Table. A single drawer and open bottom shelf provide extra room for keys, books and more.

Beneath the Staircase

Turn the open space under your staircase into a reading nook. The stylish Amish Sleigh Bed Seat opens for storage.

Underneath Open Sinks

Take advantage of the space under an open sink to get creative with storage. Add handmade eco-friendly baskets to house toiletries in style.

In Front of Built-In Shelves

That space in front of your beautiful built-in shelves can often look like it’s missing something. Add a cozy reading chair like the contemporary style Jasper Chair.

In a Surprise Nook

Is there a sizable gap between walls that bothers you? Add a small desk like the Amish Mission Secretary Desk for an instant office.

At the Base of a Small Landing

Why waste that space next to the landing?  Insert an attractive side chair like the Precedent Luc Side Chair to create a space that speaks directly to your personal style.
