Fill the neglected corners of your house

If this is your first time owning a home, you might have discovered that decorating is a more difficult task than you originally imagined. What seems so easy on television can actually be an expensive and time-consuming process, and even after you have the major elements of the house taken care of, there are still many other parts that need to be considered.

For instance, you might be wondering why your living room still feels incomplete, even after you've filled it with the typical furnishings, and the answer might be that you've forgotten the corners. Whether you're decorating an oddly shaped room or a particularly large space, you may have a few empty corners to contend with. Luckily, there are plenty of easy ways to fill these extra spaces.

1. Catch up on correspondence – Lovely writing desks were made for corners like this – facing out toward the room, they look nearly perfect. While you might not find yourself sitting and writing a lot of letters here, it can hold flowers and be a great addition to your living space.

2. Get organized – Rather than just making the corner purely ornamental, put it to work. These spots are excellent for holding phone messages and other notes and becoming a central part of the home. Especially if you're looking to decorate a high-traffic corner, turn it into a command center so to speak.

3. Make a conversation spot – With one or two pretty chairs, you can create a lovely extra seating area away from the main focus of the room. This will make your unused space look beautiful and help you with spare seating for parties. There's no need to find matching chairs, simply pick two that you like and have them recovered at your local Milwaukee fabric store.
