A living room corner can look unfinished, especially in today’s large rooms. In order to create more intimate conversation areas, we pull furniture away from the walls, this can leave the corners looking bare.

Here we’ll show you 4 ideas for decorating a corner of a living room. These ideas run from free to upwards of thousands of dollars. There are numerous other options of course.  Feel free to leave a comment below, with your favorite way to fill a bare corner.

An indoor tree – to bring in a touch of nature!

Anytime we add an indoor tree, or plant stands and a grouping of plants it makes the room come alive. They bring the outdoors in!

Twigs or branches from the yard, or any touch of nature!

This adds a fun artistic touch, with movement and texture. It brings in the feeling of nature! It is something that can be accomplished immediately, for no money. The branches or twigs can be placed in star foam, or spray foam or pebbles, whatever you need to use to keep them upright in your planter.

A game table!

A table and chairs make a room corner functional. It creates a cozy space where you can look outdoors and it allows the sofa to be pushed to the center of the room for a more intimate conversation area.
