What can I do with this blank space next to the doorwall (pic)?


This is our cottage. I don’t know what to do with the empty space next to the door wall. Inside this space is the hot water tank and hold tank. Just want to make it more appealing to look at.

    Right side? Left side? On the siding? Can you explain what you want to do a little better?

    FInd a big outdoor walling hanging. Hobby Lobby has some nice metal ones! Often on sale or on clearance!

    3 matching hanging baskets with another matching one sitting on the far right corner railing.

    Hi Liz,

    You could take attention away from it by hanging over-the-railing planters along the railing and filling them with colorful flowers. I hope that inspires you to figure out what will work. Wishing you the best.

    You can create huge outdoor art using a wood frame sealed against the elements and covered with a shower curtain. Or, do the same thing and make a gallery wall. Add hanging plants for depth.

    That area would make a great spot for a lovely little flower garden. I'm assuming you'd probably want something very low maintenance. Create a little path leading to the access, add in a bench and some landscape lights, and you've got a lovely outdoor space, place it would add some curb appeal from the lake side. There are lots of articles on my website to help get you going, when you have a few minutes start with this one. https://ginghamgardens.com/low-maintenance-flower-garden/

    I think you just need some plants and flowers in front of the treillis.

    I would go to Hobby Lobby or Kirklands and get a nice big outdoor sign or metal picture for the wall. Or you can put shelves in front of the wall for plants etc.

    I would also paint the trellis on the bottom white and if you do not need access would put hooks and hang some plants.

    I think your area just needs some color everything is bland. Color will make it more apealing.

    Wooden long planter on the porch with a trellis for Morning Glories, a wooden American flag, a giant rustic star, a grouping of garden tools, hoe, shovel pitchfork, a a long plaque you screw into the wall with a cute stenciled saying and hanging baskets from underneath with hooks.
