Transforming the Forgotten Areas of Your Home


You often hear about individuals redecorating their bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms, but some areas of the home are often forgotten about. However, just because they may not be seen as much doesn’t mean they aren’t important and shouldn’t look nice.

In this article, we are going to look at five different forgotten areas of your home and discuss how you can transform them.

Let’s get started!

The hallway is somewhere that we walk through multiple times a day, but since it’s not really a “room,” many people don’t know how to decorate it. The trick is to take a step back and look at the walls. Such a blank canvas has so many possibilities!

You could hang photographs, DIY your own artwork and even install unique lighting. Finally, to top it all off, you can add in one of these custom area rugs to give it that warm and cozy vibe.

Laundry Room

The laundry room can be a place that is often detested, but jazzing it up might make it more bearable to be in. Consider adding in plenty of storage so that all of your supplies are out of sight. You might even look at placing a wall hanger so that you have somewhere to air dry clothes.

Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color too! Some fake plants or funky wallpaper can make a big difference. Check out these creative laundry spaces for more inspiration!

Loft Space

The loft is an area of the home that is full of potential. There are so many different possibilities that you can choose from, and you can actually make it a functional and stylish space. Here are some of our favorite ideas:

  • Library/Reading Nook
  • Spare Bedroom
  • Playroom
  • Meditation Room
  • Study Nook


Definitely, one of the most essential areas of the house, giving your pantry a makeover can make it look amazing, and you can organize your snacks for easier access! Jars, baskets, and labels are your best friend so, so stock up on as many as you need. If you don’t have enough storage, consider getting space-saver racks that allow you to stack different things on top of each other.

Side Garden

Your front and back garden may get a lot of TLC, but you mustn’t forget about your side one! Consider putting in a gorgeous stepping stone pathway and arch. Some low-light plants are another great addition as they don’t require much maintenance.

If you want to use it for more storage purposes, you may construct a compost bin or worm farm. They will help benefit your garden, and you’ll be reducing waste at the same time. You can click here for a complete guide on worm composting to get started.
