While many people have space issues in their home because they don’t have enough room, if you’ve recently moved into a larger home from a smaller home, you might be struggling with how to best fill all of this new found space that you have. Luckily, there are some things that you can try with the items you already have or by just getting a few new items to help you fill your space.

To help you see how this can be done, here are three tips for decorating a large space when you don’t have a lot of stuff. 

Make Use Of Houseplants

If you don’t feel like you have the furniture to really fill up the larger space of your new home, and you don’t want to just go out and buy a bunch of new furniture at the present time, you can always use things like houseplants to help you fill up the space. 

While you can place all kinds of houseplants throughout your space to fill up any empty corners, you can also use things like taller houseplants to frame your furniture and help to fill out the space that might otherwise appear empty.

Not only can using houseplants help to make the space feel less sparse, but it can also help to make your new home look and feel fresher. 

Think About The Space In Terms Of Zones

When you look at all of the space in your new home as just large and empty, it can feel overwhelming to think about how to fill up the space. Something that can help is to think about the space in terms of zones.

In large spaces, you can use pieces of furniture to help you break the bigger areas into sections. While you can use a couch to create a main sitting area, if you have leather chairs or other smaller pieces of furniture, you can create multiple seating areas or nooks within the larger room. You can also use consoles or small tables to help section off larger rooms so that they are more palatable and easier to decorate well. 

Move Things Away From The Walls

Something else that can help to make a larger room feel a bit more cozy and less sparse is to keep furniture and other large items away from the walls. When everything is moved against the walls, it can make the space in the middle of the rooms feel much too expansive. But when you move furniture away from the walls, it can make the area feel much more inviting while also giving you and your family or guests areas to walk around in. 

If you have a large space that you’re wanting to decorate even when you don’t have a lot of items to fill it with, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you figure out how to do this.
