Corner decoration ideas for your living room

Carefully decorated corners can transform awkward, empty corners into eye-catching zones.

When it comes to home decor every inch of space needs to be embellished for a complete look. These tiny spaces in your living room can be filled with furniture, pieces of artwork, shelves and can make all the difference in those corners of your living room. Keep reading for some new and stylish corner decorating ideas to glam up your living room.

Love That Corner Table For Living Room

Show some love for those corners with a corner table. It’s small, handy, and often not given as much importance as other pieces of furniture. A corner table adds a finishing touch to your living room’s interior design. Rest your coffee or a book on a nicely designed corner table – square, round or geometric, anything works! You can also try nesting tables (two or more tables that fit in together), an excellent option for a space-challenged home.

Shelves, Storage And Style For Corner Decoration

Did you think corner shelves are outdated? Think again! For those who live in small apartments, large pieces of furniture aren’t feasible, especially if they lack functionality. Corner shelves are a great way to create extra space. Free standing shelves give you extra storage and bring in some character to a room. They are easy to place, can be moved around and fit in really well in those nooks. This apart from sprucing up the decor quotient of your living room.

Floating Shelves To The Rescue

Looking to create more space? Well, have you ever thought about using floating shelves in those empty corners of your living room?

Indoor Plants For A Natural Ambiance

Indoor plants make for beautiful decor. A dash of green in any space automatically lifts the energy and vibe of a room. Plants are great additions to corner spaces too. Be it a leafy one or a flowering pot, they are always noticed by your guests. If you want to maximise the potential of your living room, then place a large-leaf plant in a solid coloured pot. Place it on the floor or on a stand, either way greenery is a fail safe way to fill empty corners.

Include Extra Furniture

Occasional furniture is great for empty corners. A single sofa chair or a side table brings in that extra oomph to your living room. More seating in the corners of your living room makes this space feel cozy. Create a special place where you can curl up with your favorite author or a steaming cup of hot tea. And if your living room is really large you can use all four corners with a variety of seating options to make it the major design element of the room.
