Decorate Those Empty Corners Of The Home!

Some will say the corners are an interior design challenge and most often remain empty. Here are some stylish and functional ways to use that dead space that is often overlooked. 

 Corners are perfect for tall plants or trees. Add a layer of lush green, this is sure to decorate that corner and liven up your room. Taking up space while adding height to draw the eye. They are an attractive and visually neutral decorative element that will fit with any décor palette or style.

Simple pleasures... Design a quiet spot with a comfy chair and adequate lighting in a corner where you can relax and curl up with a good book.

Decorating Tip from Peggy Pardo at Decorating Files: If you are placing a chair in a tight corner, use one with rounded arms so it’s easier to get around and softens the sharpness of the corner.

Designers got smarter and began to build furniture that nestles perfectly into corners.

Corner shelves are great for eliminating dead pockets of space in the corners of walls.

By hanging short floating shelves vertically in an alternating arrangement you can create a great display space.
