Last updated on April 1st, 2022

Is there an awkward empty corner in your house that you have no clue what to fill with? If your answer is yes, then you’ve come to the right place.

Here are 13 ways you can make the most of it, giving the unused space a facelift at the same time!

1. A Display Shelf

A great way to fill up an awkward corner is to add a display shelf to it and show off your prized possessions!

2. Artwork

If there’s space to spare, art can always fill it up and make an otherwise wasted space, interesting. The home-owner here, has hung artwork spanning parts of two walls, creating an interesting display while filling up an otherwise wasted space, creatively.

3. Plants

Plants can spruce up a place in an instant. And as a bonus, they freshen the air around them as well. An absolute win-win!

4. A Corner Sofa

Another seamless way to fill up an awkward corner is to find an L-shaped sofa that can fill up the space.

5. A Bar

A makeshift bar unit can fill up an empty corner like little else. Entertain your guests in style, without having to devote any additional space in the house for an elaborate bar unit.

6. Blankets

It’s always a good idea to have a few throw blankets and pillows handy in the living room, for the comfort of your guests. It’s an even better idea to use an empty corner to house them all in!

7. A Work Area

Why not put a useless corner to good use by setting up a small work area? The space gets an interesting look and you get your own desk for days when you decide to work from home.

8. Lighting

You can transform a dull corner by giving the space some statement lighting. Not only does the extra light brighten up the space in the night, but creates an interesting focal point all in its own right, during the day.

9. A hammock

A hammock brings an interesting element to a setting, filling up an empty corner and creating an unconventional space to lounge in, making the best use of the space.

10. An armchair

An armchair and a minimal side table work beautifully in an empty corner creating a cozy nook to curl up in, with your favorite read.

11. Shelving

Shelf-space is a welcome addition in almost any space and works way better in a corner that’s more of a nook. The shelf can house different items based on the part of the house it occupies. In this case, for instance, the shelf is placed in the kitchen and holds trays, baskets and other knick-knacks from the kitchen.

12. A Banquette

A banquette can sit perfectly in an alcove and provide an extra seating area besides filling an otherwise empty corner.

13. A Console

A console table can fill up an empty corner and also serve as a catch-all in an area with no other furniture to set down things on.

Let’s say goodbye to awkward corners, shall we?
