7 Go-To Ideas for Living Room Corner Decor!

7 Go-To Ideas for Living Room Corner Decor!

Sharing my favorite ideas for living room corner decor so you can finally say goodbye to those empty corners in your home!

We took down our Christmas tree and the rest of our holiday decor this weekend (have you guys de-decorated yet?) and afterward, the corner it was in looked so bare! I’m sure I’m not alone in having a naked corner giving me the stink-eye so I thought I’d write a quick post sharing my favorite living room corner decor. Starting with my own solution, I have seven ideas for kissing those empty living room corners goodbye! (post includes affiliate links – full disclosure statement available {here})

1. A Tree (Either Faux or Real)

Up until a few days ago we had a Christmas tree lighting up the corner of our family room (I already miss it!):

Super cozy family room decorated for Christmas!

After taking it down it, I replaced it with my go-to corner filler – {this faux fiddle leaf fig tree} (mine is the 6.9 foot version):

Of all the living room corner ideas, this is my fave - a faux fiddle leaf fig tree in a woven basket!

Scroll & Click/Tap to Shop Our Family Room:


It took me a while to stomach the price of it but after killing two real fiddle leaf figs that cost $100 each, I made the investment and am so glad I did – it adds so much life to this room (and doesn’t go brown on me)! It comes with a simple burlap wrapped base so you need a pot or basket to put it in – mine is in {this woven handled basket}:

Looks so real! A faux fiddle leaf fig tree in a woven basket fills this living room corner beautifully!

As another option, I’m also crushing on {this faux olive tree} for a more airy look:

Love this faux olive tree for living room corner decor!!

Pottery Barn came out with a different faux olive tree a year or so ago that I think looked pretty fake but this one is new and looks so good! Another option is to use a grouping of planters such as {these cross base planters} filled with a variety of tall leafy plants:

A group of these planters would be perfect decor for a bare living room corner!


2. A Decorative Ladder

Another living room corner idea is to place an interesting ladder in the corner that can be used to hold extra blankets and quilts like {this cute white wood ladder}:

This blanket ladder is perfect for living room corner decor to fill an empty space!

There are actually a lot of decorative ladder options to choose from – these are a few other favorites:


You could also consider a stylish ladder bookshelf like {this one} – depending on the size of your bare corner, a single bookshelf or a pair might be just what you need: Love this idea for living room corner decor! Such a cute ladder bookcase!

3. Artwork on an Easel

Another option is to buy a pretty easel to display a favorite piece of art in the corner:

My favorite easel I’ve seen is {this gorgeous acrylic easel}:

This acrylic easel is a stunner - perfect decor to fill an empty living room corner!

And while expensive, {this oversized wood easel} that’s built to hold a flat screen TV is a pretty cool idea too:

Love this giant easel for holding a flat screen TV - great for a living room corner where it's awkward to put a TV stand!


4. A Round Table

One of my favorite living room corner ideas is to add a round corner table (and then style the heck out of it like the talented Heather Bullard did here):

5. A Cozy Reading Nook

Another option is to create a cozy reading nook with a comfy chair like {this upholstered wingback} and a small side table:

Create a cozy reading nook with a comfy chair and small side table - great way to fill and empty living room corner!

I kinda wish I could jump right into that photo – cozying up in a comfy chair to read is one of my favorite things!


6. A Floor Lamp

Another option is to fill that bare corner a statement-making floor lamp – one with a large base like {this tripod floor lamp} works best: 

This pretty tripod lamp is perfect for living room corner decor!

These are some other favorite stylish floor lamps that would work beautifully in a living room corner:


7. A Bar Cart

A final option is to use a bar cart in your bare living room corner. While you can use bar carts for the obvious purpose of setting up a bar with alcohol bottles, mixers, and glassware, they can really be used to hold just about anything – plants, books, you name it! We have {this rattan bar cart} which has been a really versatile piece – we normally use it for bar supplies but change it up sometimes too. For example a few Christmases back, I turned it into a hot chocolate station for my girls and their friends:

These are a few other stylish bar cart choices:
