Not all of us are blessed with lavish, palatial homes where we can afford to pick and choose when decorating corner rooms. Most homeowners want to make the most of every available inch of space, and forgotten corners provide the perfect opportunity to breathe new life into a room and give it a whole new dimension. In the last few weeks we have been looking at the sensible use of corner spaces in the bedroom, living room and kitchen. Now it’s time to make use of the lonely corners in the dining room!
Since open living areas are becoming more and more popular, many modern homes are foregoing the exclusive dining room. Instead, it is the ergonomically designed “dining area” that finds its place between the spacious living area and the practical kitchen. However, if you have your own dining room or dining area with empty corners, here are the most popular ways to spruce it up with style and flair:
1. Quality family time
How can the dining room corner help bring the family together? If you have enough space to spare, we recommend combining the dining room with the family area to create a fun and practical social gathering place in the home. With the kitchen right next to it, this is one of the best ways to bring the family together. To do this, you can use a small corner area or a cozy corner along with some chairs and a small coffee table. Yes, you may have to move a sideboard or an extra chair, but it’s worth the effort.
2. Add additional seating
One of the easiest and most practical ways to utilize this small corner is to simply add additional seating. It can be an extra chair that doesn’t fit at the dining table or a cozy ottoman that also adds some color. Even if the place looks pretty “lonely,” remember that in a really small room, every inch of space counts. Think of it as an aesthetic way to display an extra chair that can be used elsewhere if needed.
