This is a beautiful thought and the very reason why so many people are scared of empty spaces in their homes. Empty spaces get filled. Let’s flip the script a little bit though. Not a flip exactly but more of a pause. Before filling an empty space mindlessly, use your creativity and think about what would best live in that empty space.

This dresser was all but emptied off and out leaving a lot of empty space. The top being empty should provide the view of the TV a more pleasant and less distracted experience so no need to put anything else on the dresser. The drawers could be used for a good purpose by something living inside but instead of just throwing things in there, decide what their purpose will be. If nothing is pressing, just remember to stop before tossing in the first thing in to think whether that thing should live there or not. Adding a note “should this live here” might be the trigger you need to think before tossing.
