Room makeover, a before & after: More comfortable than sitting on English muffins

Everyone loves nooks and crannies, cozy spaces great for talking on the phone, reading a book or sipping a cup of coffee.

Sometimes it's just relaxing to have a space like that...even if you don't use it much.

And it's possible you have one of those spaces and don't even know it.

Take this house, for instance. A bump-out in short hallway that led to an addition was largely ignored, save for a bookcase.

I added a bench, just wide enough to slip comfortably into the bump-out, and a few pillows and lamps and the client had a great - and unexpected - new space.

Take a look around your house. Do you have an underused window seat? A little extra room in a hallway or a foyer?

Could be an opportunity awaits...
