Do you have a spare corner in your home that feels like it could use a little something extra? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place! Whether your room is large, you have a funky layout, or you’re still in the process of decorating, we have tons of ideas to help you fill your space and create a “bonus” area you’ll love spending time in. Keep reading to discover a few of our favorite corner decor ideas and how rugs can help you pull them off!
Create a kids’ corner.
Give your kids a space of their own by setting up a corner spot to play, read, and do schoolwork. The key to pulling it off—and not creating an area that feels haphazard and cluttered—is to store toys and other essentials on shelves and other bins that fit nicely with your aesthetic. And, of course, to roll out a rug underneath everything to make the area feel like its own little room. If your kids are especially mess-prone or they’ll be eating or doing messy crafts in the area, consider a washable rug for a worry-free look that’s a breeze to clean. Try this setup in your kids’ room, the living room, or any other spare spot.
Section off a sitting area.
One of our easiest, coziest corner decor ideas? Rolling out a rug and building a small sitting area around that. You can do this in almost any room—the bedroom, the entry, the living room—and it’s an especially great move in generous open-floor plan spaces if you’re not quite sure how to use up all your space. Try arranging your seating on a 4′ x 6′ or 5′ x 8′ rug to create a spot that feels cozy and not too small.
Add in an office space.
If you haven’t created a proper home office yet, here’s your sign to do it! And it’s so easy to set up in the corner of any room, like the bedroom, kitchen, or living room. Add a rug underneath your desk to bring in some coziness, and to add a touch of pattern, color, or texture.
Set up a small dining spot.
This stylish space above is proof that dining areas don’t need to have a massive table! Carve out a petite spot for casual meals in your kitchen or living room—or any other space you have room for a small bistro table—and build from there. We recommend adding a rug underneath to make the space feel more like its own “room” within your larger space.
Bonus Tip: Try out non-conventional rugs.
Want to create a look that feels slightly different? We’ve got you! Turn to our collection of faux sheepskin styles and small round jute rugs to layer on a little something extra. Think of these pieces like your room’s accessories—bonus pieces that can add flair to corner spots anywhere in your home.
