When it comes to decorating your home, there’s no one better suited for the job that yourself. Sure, professionals have a trained eye and can give you an insight as to how to better match colours, patterns and textures, but the feeling of success you get when you take the decorating game into your own hands is quite rewarding, especially when you get the positive feedback of family and friends. Most often, however, we tend to get so focused on the big picture that we overlook the small stuff. Take for instance, the corners in your home are particularly a tricky one. When was the last time that you actually gave it some decorating thought other than keeping it either empty or cluttered?
Since furniture takes up the most space in a home, there’s no better way to make use of it than by filling up a corner with it. With plenty of modern corner lounge models to choose from, be it in local or online shops, you can bet they are going to become your favourite furniture piece. They are comfortable, with enough seating and lounging space and they can be found in a variety of materials and colours to fit every home décor. By adding them, you bring functionality to your corner since you can put your feet up in style which is perfect when you think of this as your new comfortable reading nook. Your modern corner lounge can become an indispensable part of your home because before you know it, you are going to love spending precious moments curled up with loved ones watching shows and films (you have to admit that’s convincing enough to get a corner lounge).
Another way you can bring purpose to your corners is by decorating them with a library. There can never be too many books a home can have. ” A house that has a library in it has a soul”, is a quote that is part of the misquotations, often mistakenly attributed to Plato; one thing is for sure, whoever said it had a point. A library, no matter how small or big, can give a corner just as much liveliness as it can give depth (think: library with a secret door).
When in doubt, you can always turn to the beauty of nature – plants and their many shapes. Plants really add aesthetics to an empty corner, not to even mention all the benefits they bring about at home, cleaning up the air from toxins. The weeping fig, for instance, or a plant terrace with several pots of succulent plants or herbs can be just what you need to turn a corner into a well used spot with greenery – your own home oasis. As you can see, there are more ways you can turn a corner functional without misusing it by adding clutter, just let your imagination take the decorating lead.
