Decorating a corner space can be a tricky affair and often a task that leaves even the best designers perplexed. It is not so much the fact that the lonely little corner is incredibly difficult to decorate, but the complexity lies in making the right choice in relation to the rest of the room. Decorating a living room corner space is all about figuring out what works best for your home and the design theme that you have going. While some rooms demand an intricate and captivating corner makeover, others look stunning with simple, minimal additions. And yet there are times when a room looks balanced when the corner is left untouched and idle!
While we’ve already explored some lovely bedroom corner decorating ideas, today we delve into the many ways in which you can give that forgotten corner in your living room a stylish and sensible makeover. From saving up precious square footage to giving your room a creative new dimension, here are 10 fabulous ideas that transform the awkward corner –
1. Stylish Sectional Couch
This is probably the simplest and easiest idea that one can start off with, and since sectional sofas are specifically made for the living room corner, you really cannot go wrong here. This works especially well if you have a small living room where every inch of space is absolutely precious. Simply add a few pendant lights or wall sconces and you can easily transform this space into a serene reading nook as well.
2. Bring Home Some Fire!
Both fireplaces and beautiful water features have an allure that I am immediately drawn to, and that is probably one of the reasons why we have so many amazing fireplaces, dazzling pools and a combination of both on Decoist! While it is harder to bring water features into the living room, a freestanding corner fireplace is easy to install and instantly becomes the focal point of the room. Couple this with the right mantel decor and lighting, and you have a gorgeous corner addition.
3. A Cozy Nook
If you do not have too much space to spare and are looking for a functional and practical decorating solution, then a simple reading nook in the corner works best in the living room. All you need is a comfy chair, an ottoman and maybe a side table, and you have a relaxing spot where you can while away many an evening. Once again, some smart lighting is the icing on the cake that lets this corner nook shine through.
4. Serving Your Entertainment Needs
Corner entertainment units are a lot less popular than elaborate wall-mounted fixtures that take up a lot more space. But placing the television in the corner not only opens up additional space, it also ensures that electronic additions do not become the focal point of the room. Just a simple corner stand for the flat screen TV keeps the arrangement understated and practical.
