Our everyday routines can reveal much about us, down to the smallest details like how we utilize the space in the corner of our bedrooms.
Often overlooked as an area with minimal utility, the bedroom corner has long remained unnoticed. In this article, we share nine creative ideas to transform and make the most of your bedroom corner.
1. The Bibliophile’s Lair
Let’s do it the old-school way and begin with books. Having a bookshelf occupy that particular space in the bedroom corner comes with a stack of benefits. With it, your bedroom will look not only cozy but also intellectual. You can even keep your precious books away from predators who like to fold the pages when reading.
Most bookshelves use woods such as Mahogany and teak. These wood types are not only appreciated for their strength but also for their classic appearance after furnishing.
If you prefer this idea the most, you are someone who knows how to value things, particularly finance. You believe in adventure, but you’re too afraid to skip a class or take a day off from work.
For you who want to apply this approach, here are some our bookshelves recommendations:

2. Sans Wall Corner
It’s quite rare to see a house without even a single window, and that is because windows play an integral role in any building. But relatively, the walls are dominant. So, for a change, replace those walls with windows. The most suggested style is the French windows.
They are long, wide, and can even function as a door. They make the room appear livelier, bright, and spacious, giving it a leisure lifestyle impression.
You are a very social person but would still pick sketching at home over joining a so-called fun party. New challenges don’t seem to frighten people like you.
3. The Eco-friendly Corner
Sansevieria, Peace lily, and Parlor palm are among the many indoor plants that not only serve as room decor but also provide rich oxygen and regulate fresh air. So, if you ever have plans on filling that vacant space with nature, it is best to choose these plants. These plants have more tolerance when it comes to water, soil, light, and temperature.
On the topic of indoor plants, most of us instinctively think about insects and fear they will enter our mouths when asleep. In this case, you needn’t worry, for it is the very presence of the foliage that keeps the insects at bay.
