10 Interesting Ways To Use The Corners Of Your House
The corners of the walls are one of the most neglected areas at home when it comes to styling or decorating the interiors. Even if you think of decorating the area, you end up placing a plant or a large lamp. However, there are several other ways of decorating the corners in an interesting way.
PropGuide shares some innovative ideas to give those corners a new and fresh look:
Create a library
Have a huge stack of books and planning to stock it in one place? Use a corner. Create a hanging bookshelf or an L-shaped one to display your collection of books in this mini library.
Tuck a bed under the staircase
If you have duplex apartment with a staircase indoors, make use of the corner area underneath by placing a bed. The size of the bed will depend on the size of the area available. You can even use this bed as your cozy personal zone to sit with a cup of coffee or a book.
Space for cabinets in the kitchen
The corners in the kitchen are usually left unused. You could use these corners to place customised cabinets and add storage to your modular kitchen.
Place a tiny closet
If you have enough space in one of the corners of your home, create a tiny closet to keep your things. You can easily do it by installing a closet rod between the two corner walls.
Create a mini office
If you need to create a mini office at your home and have not been able to because you think there isn't enough space, think again! You have the corners. Use one of them in your room to create a mini office by installing an L-shaped workstation. You can also get a cabinet to store your files and other office stationery.
Your own mini bar
Transform the corner of your living area into a mini bar. The corner could be very useful to keep your favourite drinks in a wine cabinet.
Create a sitting area
If you want to add more sitting space in your room but lack space for additional furniture, use the corners. You can either get an L-shaped sofa or keep two chairs to use the area as a sitting space.
Get wall shelves
A traditional way of doing up the corners is installing wall shelves. These can be used to place books, decorative and other artefacts, and will instantly brighten up the corner.
Hang a hammock swing
Another interesting way of creating a magic with those corners is by hanging a hammock swing. It will not only help you make an appropriate use of the space but will also add the style quotient to the décor of your room.
Create a photo wall
You don't need a huge wall to get your favourite photo wall at home. Use the corner as your gallery by hanging your best pictures or art in different frame sizes. You can also use it as your family wall by placing images of your family tree.
