Therefore without further ado, here is a list of really amazing ideas to carve out these unused nooks into practical places!

Mobile Charging Station
Your precious smartphones and tablet devices deserve a decent docking or charging pad. However, having a mobile charging station for all these gadgets is one of the most overlooked item during the home renovation. Nevertheless, the good news is that a mobile charging station doesn’t take up a lot of space and a tiny sliver of wall is all it needs!

Tip: Move the electrical point to the same height as the mobile charging station so that the unsightly cables and cords can be easily stowed away.

Message Corner
Instead of a photo gallery, you can transform the empty corner as a message wall to share messages and chalk down reminders.

Tip: DIY your message wall with the blackboard paint from art supply shops such as Art Friend. To make a magnetic chalkboard wall, , just use paint that contains metal pigments.
