Ever have that one spot in your home that you just don’t know what to do with? Most of us would probably fill the corner with a pot of plant, and we’re guessing it’s still sitting there right now (believe us, you’re not alone!).
Don’t let these pocket of spaces go to waste – turn those empty corners into lively, interesting and functional spaces with these 6 smart decorating ideas and items:
1. High-Back Chairs
You can have high-back chairs at the corners of your home with a small table in between and a rug. This creates a perfectly cozy sitting area.
2. Space Saving Triangles
Triangles are great for corners, first because they fit perfectly into, corners! Do yourself a favour and turn your corner into extra storage space by putting in a corner shelf. Get creative and decorate with a mix of books, plants, souvenirs, teapots, and whatever your heart desires.
Another idea is to use a free-standing triangular shelf, like the one below. Since a triangular shelf is really half the size of a regular square shelf unit, it’s great for small corner spaces.
3. Reading Corner
Do you have piles of books that need a space? Get a simple bookcase fitted into the corner or you can install a reading swing for your kids and yourself (a great way to get them into books!). Instead of a regular chair, get comfortable by using a lounge chair so you can also stretch your legs.
4. Display Cabinets
A display cabinet that is built-in or freestanding makes good use of a corner for keeping pretty dishes, extra flatware and linens close by.
For custom build cabinets that are affordable, you can ask one of our carpenters or cabinet specialist on Gawin to get a free quotation.
5. Petite Desks
Even petite desks can make use of the smallest corner of your house. Use it as a phone desk or add a lamp décor to accessorise.
6. Game Corner
You can build a ‘banquette’ (picture below) at the corner of the room and have a game table where you can sit comfortably and play for hours, whether it’s chess, battleship or snake n’ ladders.
Make use of every corner in your house!
