What can you do to brighten up your landing?

Bookends. Photograph by Benjamin Earwicker

The landing is often a neglected part of a home, lucky even to get a pot-plant to brighten it up, but if you have a bit of extra space on your landing, you can make it a great addition to your home instead of just the bit between the rooms.

If you're trying to put your landing to better use, why not use a small console table to make a great display point for family photos or treasured ornaments? It can also be a useful place to keep spare keys, or other small items that every member of the family might need. Console tables are slimline, and specially designed not to get in your way, so why not explore the range available online and make the most of any unused corners or alcoves on your landing.

Another great way to display family portraits and mementoes is to put up slim shelves, which also allow you to keep family favourite books in a place where everyone can get to them. You can buy preassembled shelves that will not only make great storage, but which are also attractive feature pieces in their own right.

A lick of paint can make all the difference - why not create a great atmosphere with a deep earth tone, or if you want to rise and shine early and bright, what about a delightful yellow to really give you a spring in your step each day? Order some colour samples, and get creative - your home is your space, and making each room an expression of your personality is a great way to make your home a vibrant and exciting place to live.

Why not also change the lighting, with some halogen spotlights embedded in the ceiling to avoid the space-filling effect of a large lampshade? It will bring a cool contemporary style to your home and also allow you more control over lighting levels.

So take a proper look at your landing today and decide for yourself - is it living up to its full potential, or could it do with a little something special to really put a great finishing touch on your home? There are so many great options available to browse online that you're bound to discover something to bring new life to your landing.
