Is that empty corner in your living room bothering you? It is stressing you out whenever you sit on the couch and try to relax?
We get it. No matter how much effort you’ve put into decorating the rest of the room, you just can’t seem to decide on what to do with that corner.
You’ve tried some accessories, maybe even bought a new piece to fill the space, but nothing seems to be working. It’s no easy task, as you don’t want this corner to ruin all the work you’ve put into the rest of the room.
So, we are here to help! Following are some simple, yet very effective ways to fill that empty corner, in a way which will best suit your needs. Be it functionality or design you are seeking, we’ve got you covered.
Take a step back and consider the space. An empty corner in your kitchen will be used differently to an empty corner in the living room.
Are you looking for functionality? Something to make your life easier? Or is it style you are after?
In the kitchen, for example, an empty corner should be used for a more functional purpose. Adding a new appliance is a great option, or installing a small bookshelf for your cookbooks may be just the solution.
Corner bookshelves can be added to almost any room, and also bring an element of style. A small reading nook might be perfect for your bedroom or living room, and if space isn’t an issue, a few chairs and a round table can make up your new breakfast spot in the kitchen.
Shift & Rearrange
Thinking of the room differently can be just what you need to solve your problem. The world of interior design is constantly evolving and moving forward, and traditional layouts aren’t as concrete as they used to be.
Your bed doesn’t have to be in the centre of the room, and your TV doesn’t have to be in the corner. Be imaginative and move your furniture around to give yourself more space, and to create a “warmer” area.
Put your bed in a corner, and tilt your desk slightly. This will fill up the empty spaces in your room, and simultaneously open up the centre, and let the room “breathe.”
Don’t be afraid to rearrange and experiment. You never know how much a simple shift of your furniture may transform your room for the better.
Add A Unique Piece
If it’s style you are going for, consider adding a bold piece in the corner. This can really change the look of a room and add that much needed touch of freshness.
Adding a large vase, a traditional armchair, or even a nice floor lamp can be just what you need to fill the empty corner.
Wall art can also work well by filling the empty walls, so choose a few pieces and strategically place them on the walls forming the corner. Now you have your own miniature gallery!
