Do you have a little wall in your home? Usually two or three feet wide, they're often the transition space between two rooms and they're often not used for much of anything. Here are six examples of smart and stylish ways to use them in your home to add more function and more beauty.

Add Hanging Storage

Look how much function this family squeezed out of this small wall. They hung horizontal racks (this looks like GRUNDTAL rails and hooks from IKEA) to hold herbs, utensils and towels.

Create a Message Center

Groceries lists, the week's menu, reminders and save-the-dates can all be writ large on a chalkboard paint wall for everyone in the house to see.

Make a Seating Area

Place a chair or small bench against a little wall as an extra spot to put on your shoes, take a phone call or just plop for a minute when you need a rest.

Make an Art Space for Kids

Especially in a small home, it can be be hard finding a place for kids to do art. A chalkboard wall just for them can be reused over and over for drawing and doodling.

It can be hard to fill a large wall with art - but a small wall is much easier and an opportunity to display more of the things that you love.

Add Color to Your Home

This nearly-neon wall is in a home that is otherwise composed mostly of neutral and muted colors. The bold color in this doorway adds an unexpected element of fun to the space.
