Nearly everyone has an empty corner in their living room or bedroom that they just don’t know what to do with. Do you put a coat rack, umbrella stand or some other odd object there just to fill the space? Well, if you’re stuck for ideas, bean bag chairs or a nice corner electric fireplace seem to both be getting a lot of votes these days.
Aren’t Bean Bag Chairs for Kids?
Many people are under the impression still that bean bag chairs are for kids, this is absolutely not true! One can never have enough seating and what other piece of furniture are you going to find that you can put in the corner that won’t look out-of-place?
Since there is no back on bean bag chairs, you don’t have to worry about them scuffing up the walls when they are too close either. Not to mention, there are tear-shaped beanbags that will really fit in a corner perfectly.
These are not pieces of furniture that are simply going to fill in space either; bean bag chairs have a way of drawing you in. They are inviting, comfortable and decorative and they’ll offer balance to a room that maybe has a few too many sharp lines.
Don’t Forget the Corner Electric Fireplace
If you don’t need more seating or if you happen to have two awkward areas in your room, a corner electric fireplace is ideal. Who couldn’t benefit from a little warmth and ambiance?
In case you’re not familiar with the concept of a corner electric fireplace, there is no venting required! All you do with these varieties is plug them in and you have a flame at your fingertips by using a remote control. Some let you control the temperature while others allow you to turn the heat completely off and just keep the flame.
Do you have a space that’s a little crammed? A corner electric fireplace is perfect for you because some are sturdy enough that you can put your flat screen on top. This will eliminate the need for a separate media stand taking up floor space.
If you would like a fireplace but you’re not really sure a corner model is right for you, you will find that some manufacturers make convertible styles that can transition from the corner to the wall in one easy step.
