4. Above the toilet

The top of your toilet is also a great place to utilize some unused space. Use it for necessities like extra toiletries but also add a touch of your personal style through fresh cut flowers or your favorite accessory.

5. Unused fireplace

Whether you have a fireplace that is never used or just cleaned it out for the warm summer months, there's no reason to leave your fireplace empty in the off season. From candles to books and other decor, there are many ideas for using this space to make a style statement.

6. Across the windows

If you don't have wide enough window sills and would like to display fresh cut flowers or plants where they will receive the most sunlight, try hanging vases or jars across the window instead.

If you have a couch along a wall, why not use that empty space you've left between the couch and wall to prevent damage? Always Never Done creates a sofa table wide enough for extra decor for just $20.

8. Above the washer and dryer

You can also leverage empty space above your washer or dryer. Add a little shelf for extra storage or just to make the laundry room feel a little more homey. See how Country Girl Home does just that for less than $10.
