Oddly, in two out of our three former homes, the bedroom was the one space that had any room for "something extra." And while we like the idea of having a room devoted just to sleep, extra space is extra space. If you're one of the lucky people that actually has ample space between the wall and the end of your bed, how do you use it? Here are a few of our favorite ways of putting the dead space to work....
• loveseat or set of arm chairs for a cozy reading spot
• dog bed
• writing desk
• storage trunk
• pair of ottomans
• table and chairs
• vanity table
How do you use your extra space?
