We’ve all got that one corner at home that’s nearly impossible to fill. It’s either too tight for furniture or not large enough for much else. So we rounded up a few clever ideas for decorating those awkward corners and spaces. Take a look!

Statement florals of the papered variety lend a much needed pop of color to a whitewashed space.

Fill the space with a slew of vibrant greens, assorted in size and texture. Get creative with the vessels for a more effortless feel. Bonus points for spots by the window!

A lengthy mirror makes good use of a tight corner, while emulating a greater sense of depth within the room.

Working with a tight curve? Use the area as an entry point for the room by furnishing it with hooks for accessories and a basket that doubles as a handy catchall.

A potted plant paired with a refined print evokes an effortlessly chic aesthetic within this minimalist space.

Custom corner shelves set high along the wall make clever use of an extraneous space best reserved for books, decorative accents, and more.

Custom corner shelving units lend a stylish touch to the living room, while maximizing square footage with a clever storage system.

Create a makeshift entry by filling the spot with the bare essentials: a mirror, side chair, and a textured piece for an elevated decorative layer.

Pair a hanging rattan chair with a handful of vibrant greens to create a dreamy, indoor escape.

Transform the corner into a play area for the little ones. Install sets of floating shelves along the walls and complete the look with a cozy landing pad beneath.

Feeling crafty? A faux fireplace (mantle included) lends a classically elegant touch to this dreamy bedroom setting.

A snug seat paired with a side table and floor lamp makes for the perfect reading nook. Cozy textures and warm throws complete the look.

Inverted corners are no exception! Rethink the classic gallery wall with a clever placement of art along two adjacent walls.
