7 Smart Ways To Make That Empty Corner In Your House Look Less Awkward
Tried doing everything for that empty corner in your living area but nothing seems to work? You probably haven’t tried the gallery wall display. It’s a myth that you need a large wall for your dream gallery, a corner works just nicely. Create an eye-catching, asymmetric display on the corner walls using varied artworks from GoingDesi. Extending a gallery wall into a corner makes the space look more cohesive. For an even more swoon-worthy gallery, pick large metallic paint artworks from Evolve. Or create a fun space with quirky wall art from Krita & Penna.
