Decorating Ideas for Corners
Corners are not hard to decorate; they just need the right elements. Transform bare corners into useful and inviting spots with these corner decorating ideas.
Accent Tables and Chairs
Accent tables and chairs are an easy corner decoration option. Insert a uniquly-shaped or scaled chair and a small table topped with books, accessories and a floral arrangement to punctuate a corner.
Display Wall Art
You don't need a large wall to display wall art. Decorating corners with photos or other artwork is an easy way to fill the space. A corner blank space is a perfect backdrop for an eye-catching, asymmetric display. Or, extend the lines of your space by continuing a gallery wall into a corner.

Turn an empty corner into a small sitting area and reading nook. A corner is a perfect opportunity to add in a custom built-in bench or a cozy chair with plenty of cushions. To maximize storage, use attractive storage containers on shelves to conceal small items.
