Making Your Room: Fuller or Emptier

Hello everyone! After I did the little ol' Finding Your Aesthetic post, many of you requested for more room related posts.

So today I'll be showing you how to achieve that full room look (similar to mine) or the simple room aesthetic, using the same items!





Use plants

Plants are a great way to fill up a room as well as creating a minimalist look. 

Fuller: You can get cheap ones at a lot of your typical stores, my grocery store sells them. And then you can just place them all around your room and it fills up any empty space. 


Emptier: You can place a little plant on your bedside table or your desk and it will add a really nice neat touch to your space. If your area is plain, the plant will give it a little pop of color that makes a minimalist space perfect. 

Most plants like the one I have don't cost very much, this one cost around 4-5 dollars.


Fairy Lights

I got my fairy lights for 2 dollars each strand at my local craft store and I know Target always sells really interesting ones so I would check in those places! 

Fuller: You can place lights by a little picture wall and that fills up the wall. You can also layer the lights on the wall in rows. Pinterest has tons of fairy light inspiration ideas that I've used for my room.


Emptier: Place a strand of fairy lights above your bed or your desk to, just like the plant, add a little pop of light to your room and make a nice neat placement. 


Books

because, books right. 

Fuller: If you have a little shelf or something, place a bunch of books there, as many as you can. It doesn't matter if they're organized, that gives it more of a fuller and "messy" appearance. 

I also have small books stacked on my bedside table that fills empty spaces!


Emptier: Choosing books that match together is the key. Especially if the covers are mostly black/white. You can place these on your bedside table in a neater fashion. 


Black and White Quotes

Honestly you would think this would be more for the "emptier" side but no actually I've found it can really fill up a room. 

Fuller: Just add a bunch of black and white quotes to a wall and it can look really cool, like a wall of words. If any of you try it, let me know because I think it would look gorgeous. 

Emptier: Basically do the opposite of above. Add a couple quotes to the wall, separated from each other. Black and white especially helps to make a room look very minimalistic, it's neutral. 


Other Tips

Here are some other little ideas to fill or empty your room!

Fuller: 
-LOADS of pictures. I just print a bunch of pictures out.
-A fun bedset. Your bedset could be patterned, beds always make a room seem more full. 
-Lots of little organization things. You can be organized but have the bins take up space too!

Emptier: 
-BLACK AND WHITE. just yes. 
-WOOD STUFF. yes
-GOLD STUFF. yes
-and framed stuff because that looks neat yay. 


I hoped this helped some of you, a lot of you enjoyed the other room aesthetic post so this should also help. I suck at conclusions like I've always sucked at conclusions I apologize. 



What's your room type? Full or empty? How do you want your room to be like? 

Also very important: is the correct grammar form, fuller or more full? my parents and I are having a legit argument over this help 

Thanks for reading,
Noor

  6. Great post! FAIRY LIGHTS AND BLACK-AND-WHITE QUOTES YASSSSSS

    By the way it is not 'more full' OR 'fuller'. Something is either full or not. However if you do want to use it, 'more full' is correct.

  11. Love this tips! I really do need to get some fairy lights. I've always wanted to; I just keep procrastinating. Although, I always call them twinkle lights instead, because of this movie called You've Got Mail. (It's hilarious, by of way.)

    I have a post-it note plot wall, and some other papers up. But I really want a band poster wall! With song lyrics. Because music.

    I like how you mention books too! I always feel strange when I walk into someone's house and there are no books, anywhere. How do they live?

    I helped my friend decorate her wall with old music records she found at a thrift store. We checkered it with the records and the record covers. It was super cool! And fun.

  12. Fuller, I think. Although it sounds weird, and to the ears of most "more full" would seem correct. (But technically neither is correct, since "full" is an absolute concept, therefore something is either full or it is not, it cannot be "more" than full.)

    Also, loved this post!

    1. I'm sorry Sophia, I'd rather not say that, because of privacy reasons :) but the craft store that I got my lights from is AC Moore but Target sells some in their home section. If you need any other tips on where to find them just ask!
