Decorating Your Room Around Obstacles

Decorating a room with obstacles can be a daunting task. But with the assistance of Sklar Furnishings, you can use these obstacles to your advantage and create a unique and special space. From awkward return vents to protruding columns and steps that divide the room, we provide the furniture and the creativity to make it all work.

Utilize Decor for Single Stair Safety

To begin, a single stair leading to a den or sunken living room can be both attractive and safe with the right decor. To make the stair more visible, consider adding a wicker basket filled with books or a tall floor plant near it. Not only will these decorative elements make the stair stand out, but they will also bring texture and color to the room, creating a cohesive aesthetic.

Transform an Obstacle into a Room Highlight

Rather than trying to disguise an inconvenient obstacle like a utility column, why not make it the focal point of the room? Give it a fun, creative touch with a graffiti poster or vibrant paint color. You can choose a hue that complements the current decor, or go with something that creates a striking contrast. This is a great way to add a unique, personal touch to the room and show off your imaginative flair. 

Stylish Solutions for Small Room Storage

If you’re limited on wall space or other obstacles, there are still ways to maximize storage potential. Investing in custom-made boxes or small shelves can help store items in tight spaces. You can find these online or at home improvement stores like Home Depot or the Container Store. Not only will these shelves and boxes help keep things organized, but they can also add a decorative touch to the room.

No Windows? No Problem!

If your room has no windows, you can still make it feel more open and inviting. Hang curtains to give the illusion of a window, and make the room appear more spacious. To create a cozy atmosphere, choose lighting with bulbs designed to fight Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). These will provide a warm, calming glow that will make the room feel inviting.
