How to Transform an Awkward Corner

How To

Every home has them—those awkward corners that seem impossible to decorate. But with some creativity and the right pieces, these spaces can be transformed into sleek and functional areas. At our Design Studio, we believe every inch of your home should reflect unique character and uplifted style. In this blog post, we will be sharing our top tips on how to make the most of those tricky spots.

Unique Furniture

Enhance your corner with distinctive furniture pieces, such as our striking pine and olive wood finished console table. Crafted from local Tunisian materials, this unique table seamlessly incorporates a lamp with a straw shade, adding a tropical flair to the space. We adore how it enriches the overall scheme with its inventive design.

Cosy Reading Nook

One of the easiest ways to utilise an awkward corner is to create a cosy reading nook. All you need is a comfortable chair, a small side table, and a good lamp for ample lighting. Add a soft throw and some decorative cushions for an inviting touch. This setup not only enhances the corner’s functionality but also creates a charming focal point in your room.

Indoor Greenery

Transform an unused corner into a mini indoor garden to breathe new life into your home. Use a variety of plant sizes and styles, from tall floor plants to small succulents. A stylish plant stand or a series of floating shelves can help organise your greenery beautifully. Plants enhance the aesthetic appeal of a space and improve air quality, making your home healthier and more vibrant.

Tented Wardrobe

For an unexpected touch, consider our newest addition to the Shop Kit Kemp furniture collection: the ‘Ann-Marie Tented Wardrobe’. This one-of-a-kind piece transforms any awkward corner into an artful storage solution. Inspired by traditional craftsmanship, it adds whimsy and elegance, perfect for storing clothes, linens, or even your favourite board games and family treasures.

Artistic Display

Unused nooks are perfect for showcasing your art collection. Create a gallery wall with a mix of framed photos, prints, and artwork. Vary frame styles and sizes for visual interest, or display collectables like keys, tins, plates, or any curious items you love. Incorporate sculptural pieces or a small console table to display smaller art objects and collectables, turning an overlooked area into an engaging visual experience.

Functional Workspace

On those work-from-home days, a functional workspace can be invaluable. Turn a neglected corner into a productive home office with a compact desk, a small but comfortable chair, and a stylish yet practical table lamp.

We believe no corner should be left unloved. We hope these tips inspire you to transform your awkward corners into character-filled nooks.
