Beautify Your Utility Closet with One Easy Step

There are so many ways to beautify traditional living spaces within your home but it can be hard to find ways to make something like a Utility Closet look it’s best. I have tried many ways to spruce up a closet, hallway, or a dark corner in my home. No matter what I tried it seemed that nothing ended up looking the way I planned it to. I have never been great at interior design although I enjoy trying!

My biggest problem seems to be clutter.  I tend to not leave an idea alone, I am like that when I paint as well. I am never done, there is always an area to touch up. That is not a good strategy to go with when you are trying to spruce up a small area.

Lucky for me, I have recently teamed up with Wayfair to help beautify my Utility Closet with just one easy step, add a decorative rug!

This is not only an easy embellishment to add but it isn’t going to break the bank either! Simple things like this are what keeps me going!

There is something so exciting about finding the perfect addition to a boring spot in your home decor.

Wayfair has a ton of beautiful rugs to choose from, I selected the ELLE Decor Collection accent rug by Home Dynamix. I love the black pattern on burlap style and it looks great at the foot of my Utility Closet.

The pattern and colors are the perfect design to brighten the area up as well as add a touch of high design. I feel like I added a touch of elegance to a boring space and now instead of blending into the walls as if the utility closet didn’t exist, this space has become a welcome focal point to a dark corner of my home.

Grabbing the vacuum to pick up an unwanted mess in my living room has never put a smile on my face before but now that the utility closet is aesthetically pleasing, I don’t mind the surprise messes as much.

I enjoy beautifying nontraditional areas. It really pulls everything together in my home to create an overall look that I love!

I think my next project is going to be to add a decorative accent rug to the laundry room. I know where I will go to pick one out but I am not sure what color or design to go with yet. I always wonder what the rules for interior design are and how I am supposed to know what will look best without trying everything?

Hmm, that mentality may be the root of my clutter problem.

I am going to head over to Wayfair for decorating inspiration. Since I was able to beautify my Utility Closet with one easy step, I know that I can find ways to make every corner of my home look exactly how I want.

Do you have an area in your home that would like to beautify by adding an accent rug?

I love the pattern on that rug. I always like sprucing up areas in the house that are usually left behind.
