1. Room “Street” Signs
Beautify your home and you’ll beautify your soul. Many architects and industrial designers implement the art of feng shui when designing a building. This Chinese philosophical system is all about harmonizing everyone with their surrounding environment. Whether you live in a two-story house or a tiny apartment, maximizing your space is key. Everything has a place, and that place should rarely be the floor.
Brackets serve a very simple purpose: to hold things up. Usually implemented in wall shelves, these little triangular bits of wood and iron can actually be used to do a lot more. You should always think twice before you throw out any old furniture or fixtures; odds are, the decor warriors of the internet have already found a plethora of ways to repurpose any “junk” you have. Add a charming accent to your hallways, create new and useful storage above your door frames, make a useless boomerang that doesn’t boomerang – the possibilities are endless.
If you have some spare brackets lying around, check out these clever ways to add a touch of flair to your home.
