Hello friends,

I recently made some changes to my living/dinning room and now I have an empty corner and I don't know what to do with it.
I'm uploading some photos and I'd appreciate if you could help-me with ideas! Thank you!

** Well I'm new and I can post pictures here, so please take a look at my gallery:

PS: sorry for the mess Wink

If I were  you, I would try not to put anything into that corner.  But I would consider a big green house plant in the corner, or art on the walls to fill the space..

Ill weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.

You must have been reading my mind because I was thinking plant also.  A lovely full tall plant would bring a little color and liven up the area.

You can also add pictures to your wall, you can add two green plants, with a small table in between where you can put maybe an aquarium.

A big ceramic vase is what I'd like to use that space for.

I would suggest you to plant some beautiful plants there preferably a creeping plant. If not then one leafy plant in a pot would also work. That would create a variation in that part of the room especially there is the dining table nearby.

I agree with all above posters, as corners are perfect places for plant. Get one or two plant on each corner.

+1 for large potted plant! I think it would make a big difference if you have some leafy green in the room. A small coffee table may also work.

I also agree with all the posters that plants are the best option to cover corners but if you don't want to add plants then in my opinion you can also install shelves then you can decorate it and put anything as you want.

A dead corner can bring down a whole room; there's a ton of empty space there, just begging to be filled.

Some decoration on the walls--not necessarily pictures, something with irregular outline would be nice.  Since it's a dining room, maybe a collection of plates and platters.  Everything in your room is made up of square shapes, some curves would be great.

Nobody walks into corners, so they're a great place to hang decoration from the ceiling.  A pendant lamp would be good, or something arty.  I have a collection of glass-and-metal stars hanging in one corner of my living room.

A tall floor lamp works well in corners, too.  I have a torchiere with built-in shelves, so I can display stuff and have extra light.

an area rug under the table would help define that space as the dining room.  Mine is a polypropelene outdoor patio rug, so if something spills, it doesn't wreck the rug.  Worse come to worst, I can take it out and hose it off.  And they're cheap; my 9x7 rug cost less than $100.

I think you should put a standing lamp at that corner. However, I'm not sure that you have the powerpoint nearby.
This lamp can change the ambient of this space. In the daytime this lamp will be standing out with its shape while the night time it gives warm and cosy ambient for entire dining space.

The plant can be fill in as you want in the future. You can mix variety of plants in a pretty pot and sizes. Should be an interesting corner for you and your family to play and move thing around to make this corner wonderful.
