(6) Make Use of Vertical Storage

Most homeowners overlook the use of vertical storage when looking for usable space. But vertical storage can make an interior feel open and livable. It enables you to decorate a room and store items without creating a large footprint. It also allows you to free up valuable floor space and remove things from eye level, where they draw a lot of attention. However, be careful not to install too many storage pieces on your walls. You’ll end up creating an unbalanced field of vision. Also make sure your vertical storage is light colored so they don’t create too much contrast to break up the eye’s vision.
