Most of us have sofas in our home, in one room or the other. Some sofas are quite big that they take up most of the space in the room. Well, if you are in a situation like that, or just feel the need to utilize the space around or behind your sofas, then this is the place for you to be. You will get to learn ways and get ideas on how you can easily make sure that space is properly utilized and at the same time adding more glam in your home.
Socket Shelf: Sometimes there is a situation where the place you want your sofa to be located or placed against a wall that has an electrical socket. If this is the case, all you have to do is to move your sofa a little away from the wall. The space between the wall and the sofa should be big enough for a small shelf. On the shelf, you will attach an electrical socket then connect that to the socket on the wall. Or on the wall you plug in an adapter then the adapter can be placed on the shelf. You can also place on the shelf some other home decors of your choice.
Storage Case: This idea can also be used when you do not want your sofa directly against a wall. So, behind the sofa, you can put a storage case. The case can be of any size you want determining the distance you want between the sofa and the wall. You can decide to add categories inside the case so to be able to store different things. One category can have some little blankets, the other can have books. The case is best when you can close it. This way, you can place some decorations on the top of the case.
Room Division: If you have a small room that you want to use as two, sitting room and any other room, then this idea is what you need. You can use a long sofa to divide the room. The sofa should be long enough to divide the room right. Behind the sofa, you can also place other furniture such as a bookshelf bench, or a table with decoration.
Storage Shelf Sofa: This idea generally is a sofa that is joined at the back with a shelf. The shelf and the sofa should be about the same size for it to work. This way both the sofa and the shelf look as though they are the same piece of furniture. This will definitely bring uniqueness into a room.
Book Shelf above Sofa: If you love to read, and have or want that special corner where it’s just you and your books, then you would love this for your home. The concept is to have a book shelf above that comfy sofa. This way, as you read, you get to sit right above your books and whenever you want a new book, all you have to do is to grab it from right above you. You can also decide to add more lamps around the sofa and book shelf for better lighting as you read.
Photo Shelf: You can choose to put shelves above the sofa and this time, on the shelves you can place some picture frames or art pieces. This will be best done when the wall is wide and plain. The picture frames or the art pieces plus the sofa will help make a difference in the way the room will look. It is a simple idea, but very active.
Matching Wall and Sofa: If you think this won’t look good for a room, then you are wrong. You can paint one side of the room the same color as your sofa, and then place the sofa against the wall. The color of the sofa and the wall can be a little shade difference, but the idea is to have both been the same color. This will make the room quite inviting. The wall on which the sofa is against can have some other decors placed on it so that it won’t look plain.
Sofa Shaped Shelf: This shelf has a similar shape as that of the sofa. This means it will align the sofa perfectly so that the two look like they are joined together. The shelf can be shorter than the sofa, so that it will not be visible from one side of the sofa. On the shelf, you can place object that you know you will need the most whilst sitting on the sofa. You can place some books and lamps. You can also choose to use the shelf for décor only.
Corner Sofa: This sofa is one that is shaped like the corner of a room. If you want, you can use a bench with drawers underneath and add some cushions so that the bench will be turned into a sofa altogether. This sofa is most likely to be long, and that means it will be able to cater for a number of people. If the sofa is long enough, you might chose not to use extra chairs in the room.
Sofa and Drawers: This idea also involves placing a piece of furniture behind a sofa. In this case, the furniture will be a small table that has some drawers on it. You can use the table to place some objects as decorations, or you can have the table and drawers painted into a unique color so that they are part of the décor themselves.
