Home corners are the most under-rated spaces. They are boring, empty and hallow and thus the most ignored places of the home. However, have you ever thought of converting it into a creative place!!?? Or maybe transform the corners into cozy or modern spaces in simple yet innovative ways. No, we are not asking you to make a shoe rack or leaving it empty. There are a zillion way to spruce up the corners, not necessarily all the corners of your home, maybe one or two and the complete look of your home changes. Corners are one of the best and inexpensive ways to make-over your bedroom, living room or bathroom or lobby.

Let’s discuss a few simple ideas that can do wonders to the corner spaces and in turn your home.

1. Writing Table – give flame to the writing flare in you by setting up a small writing table with chair in a suited corner. You can beautify it with a floor or table lamp. Place a potted plan for the positive vibes. Hang your inspiration on the front wall or maybe put a book or two to inspire the writer in you.

2. Home Library – corners are perfect warm places for home library. Place an open rack or book shelf on one of the corners and showcase your collection of books, and novels. Compliment it with a comfortable sofa chair or even a rocking chair along with a fluffy cushion and a warm quilt or shawl or a blanket. You can also hang on a nice pendant lamp hanging from the ceiling. And there you!!! You just transformed an empty space into an interesting home library.

Buy as many beautiful, and rustic frames as you can and hang your family pictures, childhood pictures, memories from school or college, pictures with best friends or even your favorite quotes or some stunning fine art. You can decorate it with floor lamp or pendant lamp hanging from ceiling. And you have a place that shares panache of an art gallery.

How about a sleek wooden laminate show case in one of the corners. This would be the best way to boast your belongings you bought from different parts of the country or world you have travelled to.
