One humble example is the tissue box cover – those dispensers that are a part of our everyday lives.
While their main purpose may to be conceal unattractive packaging on a tissue box, they are more than merely functional. They’re actually ways to enhance your decorating. And, thanks to their size and affordability, coverings for your tissue box are an easy way to quickly change the look of a room’s focal point. So these under-appreciated items should not be overlooked when decorating a space.
They can be placed in several spots where they may be needed in the house or home office, such as the side console, side tables, dining tables, bathroom counters or coffee tables. The style you choose should match the environment as well as the box you’re covering. An upright tissue box will need an upright box with lid, or without.
Since their shapes are limited to mostly square or rectangular, you’ll want to pay attention to the textural quality of the item you consider.
For example, on a desk in an elegant home office decorated in mostly white or off white, an upright tissue box with a matte marble and brushed brass look will add a touch of glamour. If a more dramatic look is your preference, pick an upright tissue box made from gun-metal-hued stone and stainless-steel.
Then stock up on other matching bathroom accessories, such as a soap dish made from the same material. Ensure you have towels in varying sizes, and keep them stored on a towel stand to look after them and ensure they last.
