The centre of a living room is often filled with sofas, armchairs, rugs, media storage and coffee tables, so the room’s corners can be used to create individual nooks. While a corner sofa is a great use of space, a bespoke reading area can also be created with a chaise longue, side board or console table and a table lamp. Another corner can become a work hub with a desk, chair, bookcase and/or shelving. And for the adults, why not turn a corner into a mini bar by furnishing it with a bar cart stocked with all the essentials.
There’s no need to skimp on the accessories, even when space is limited. Small things, such as colourful cushions, throw pillows, soft throws, shiny candleholders and candles, can pack a very large punch and can help your space feel like home. Picture frames and wall art are great ways to personalise a room, and area rugs and curtains can add larger blocks of colour.
