1. Bookshelf or Decorative Shelf

One way to fill an empty corner is with a bookshelf, a decorative shelf, or a bar cart. Whether it's used to display favorite novels, family photos, or art objects, a bookshelf can be both functional and decorative.

2. Mirror

Another option is to hang a mirror in the corner. Mirrors reflect light and make a space feel larger, which can be especially helpful in small rooms.

3. Plants

For a more organic look, consider adding plants. Tall plants like fiddle leaf figs and rubber trees can help to fill empty space while also purifying the air.

4. Sitting Nook

Creating a functional nook for your reading time is a great idea to fill up an empty corner. Simply place a chair, a stool, or both to the corner and place a book, candle, or a small plant. You can easily see the visual difference.
