Empty corners in living rooms are one of the great enemies of home decoration. However, even though we fight against them, sometimes they appear. On most occasions, too, it costs quite a lot to think about how to cover those gaps without breaking the rest of the decoration. Don’t worry; there are some solutions.
There are many theories about hollow corners. For some people, decorating a living room is not over until there are no dead or empty spaces. Open spaces, or blank corners, are opportunities for other people. As usual, balance is often where the practicality resides.
Using floating shelves
Floating shelves are one of those timeless home decor classics. It is a very simple option to fill empty spaces.
In addition, one of the great advantages of floating shelves is that we will find them adapted to virtually any style of decoration, from the most sophisticated to rustic decor.
On the other hand, we must not forget that a floating shelf offers extra storage space and the possibility, in turn, to place other decorative elements. It is a simple solution, probably cheaper than others, and it really works.
We can use a huge variety of indoor plants for empty corners. In addition, decorating with plants is trendy, and grateful concerning the set of almost all decorating styles.
For example, you can choose planters of various shapes and sizes to install plants that tend to grow vertically to occupy dead corners. Also, you can place wide pots to grow plants that tend to overflow the pot and generate a feeling of spaciousness on the front of a wall, etc.
Turn empty walls into art exhibits
That is another great classic of living room voids, but, at the same time, it is one of the great conflict generators. Placing a painting to fill a gap can be bad when you don’t have good selection criteria.
However, a good selection of lithographs, photographs, paintings, etc., can not only improve an empty space but can contribute to improving the whole living room. Visually it will be a focal point (provided it is done well).
The idea is to make a good selection according to the decoration of the sitting room. It makes little sense to place super modern lithographs in a rustic furniture environment where they will be out of place.
Choosing asymmetrical installations with visual appeal and fit within the overall decor is the key to success in this case.
