Make Arrangements Think beyond a flat arrangement of wall art to create an arresting 3-D display. Start by hanging a slender shelf or demilune table. Then paint a color block or decorative outline, such as this ribbon design, on the wall above it to give it sizable presence. Hang a small mirror to reflect an array of pretty collectibles or a vase of fresh flowers.
Create storage behind a couch, love seat, or armchair. Pull furniture far enough from the wall to allow for open crates or bins, as well as access to them. Furniture pieces such as lift-top ottomans are also ideal for storage-strapped rooms.
