You can have the impression that the empty corners in your house are staring back at you when you glance around. Even though we spend a lot of time and effort furnishing the larger rooms in our homes, we frequently overlook these bare places.
To incorporate your empty corners into the overall theme and setting of your home and make them functional, just a few straightforward strategies are required. Here are 7 ideas for utilising those unused spaces around your home!
Simple Hallway Storage
By the front door, a vacant niche serves as a place to store handbags, hats, and other quick-access items. For a sleek, contemporary décor style, add some texture, like this blue subway tile (styled by Blue Copper Design), and outfit it with silver hooks.
Personalize a Workstation
A small area has a lot of potential to become the perfect workspace, but doing so means making the most of every square inch that is available. An empty space can be transformed into a place to brainstorm by adding a dresser or bespoke desk that matches the space well. For even more storage, you could decide to include some corner cabinets.
Utilize That Weird Nook As Storage
A peculiar corner nook transforms into a significant storage possibility in a small doorway. Hats and scarves are easily accessible on these shelves and cubbies, while everyday necessities like shoes and tote bags are prominently displayed.
Utilize compact storage
Simple ladders aren’t merely for aesthetic decoration. This one makes a stunning statement and offers a practical location to store extra towels close to the bathtub in this contemporary bathroom. Without a table or even installing shelves, it offers the ideal basic approach to keep necessities close at hand—just lean the ladder against the corner and presto!
Add some greenery
Try placing a tall plant in a small corner spot if you want to freshen it up. Bold leafy plants will provide colour and a new, natural feel to an empty spot. Additionally, selecting a taller choice can occupy vertical space in regions that are challenging to design.
Display Special Furniture
A blank wall can be the ideal place to display special furniture that needs to stand out. Beautiful vintage-style chest with cupboards and drawers fits wonderfully into this otherwise vacant corner area.
The corner where the couch will be
Sometimes the options that are closest to us are the simplest. Pushing your couch into an empty corner efficiently fills the area and may result in a more open design.
Include matching side tables
dealing with many empty spaces? Consider employing coordinating accent tables to not only spruce up your corners but also to establish harmony in your living or bedroom. Whether it’s a stack of your favourite books or a vase filled with fresh seasonal flowers, you may furnish and decorate each table anyway you like.
Place a corner counter
Maybe your counter space isn’t as large as you had intended. Why not expand your countertop by installing a corner version if you have an empty corner? You can create the ideal seating area or use it as storage for all of your cookbooks and plants if you instal it at a slightly lower level.
Establish a breakfast area
Although a dining room table and chairs can be placed in a vacant nook space, there is a method to make greater use of your corner. You can seat additional visitors by adding benches with cushions and creating a breakfast nook, and it’s also a chic way to spruce up an empty space.
Turn on the lights
Consider installing a sconce on the higher portion of your wall if you need to fill a blank space. In addition to being visually appealing, they may provide you with access to light that is conveniently located. You have a wide range of alternatives thanks to their configurable shapes and sizes.
Include a Big Mirror
Mirrors have the power to modernise any environment and bring a level of refinement. A floor-length mirror propped up against a wall or corner will instantly transform your room. Additionally, the light that is reflected can enlarge a tiny room.
Create a mural
Sometimes all that’s needed to decorate a corner is a fresh coat of paint and an aesthetic vision—no furniture or other decorative items of any kind. Dwell Aware’s stunning mural offers colour and design that inspire creativity. A once-bland, white corner has been transformed into a charming, stylish masterpiece.
Make a Chic Reading Corner
Adding a cosy chair and a built-in bookcase to an otherwise plain nook is a certain way to liven things up. You can settle up with your preferred book and read late into the night by adding some artwork, greenery, and a lamp to the room.
Dispatch One Piece of Art
Although gallery walls are a great alternative, if you want a more minimalist approach, consider picking just one piece of art to enliven your bare corner canvas. You can try an oversized piece, depending on the size of the room; just be aware of the area you have available. We adore how the displayed artwork complements the exposed brick wall and unifies the room.
Set Up a Bar Cart as Decor
When a bar cart is as elegantly adorned as the one pictured above, we appreciate using it as a standout piece. Bar carts are typically transportable and can easily blend into the design scheme you’ve chosen for your room. Plus, moving to a different room isn’t that difficult if you decide you want to vary things up.
