The corner table is a perfect solution not only for those who need to create solutions to decorate the corners of the house, but also for those who wish to enhance a larger circulation space in an environment. Besides being decorative, it can be used as a complement to a German corner in a dining room or a support measure in the living room.

How to decorate a corner table with elegance and practicality

According to Larissa, a professional from Minimal Arquitetura, the decoration of a corner table depends entirely on your needs in relation to the space in which it will be installed. Below, the architect gives tips on how to develop this composition in various scenarios:

  • Find the function of your corner table: you can use a corner table to support tablets and/or virtual assistants for smart home control, positioning of table lamps or just decorative objects such as vases with flowers/plants or empty ones, books, sculptures, etc.
  • Pay attention to the size: Corner tables usually measure between 35 and 60 cm in width, but, regardless of the measurement, the ideal is to keep the furniture between 10 and 15 cm away from other furniture in the room. If you have a larger space than that, you may want to think of another solution for the place.
  • For corner living room table: You can compose this space with books with visual themes and other items, such as sculptures and decorative objects. Pots with succulents or cacti are a good option, because they are plants that survive well in shaded environments. In addition, as already mentioned, it is always an interesting place to keep items of technology and lighting, bringing functionality to this little space of the house.
  • German Corner Table: In addition to the number of people you want to accommodate in the space, the size of the room must be considered when choosing the piece. For a 120x120cm German corner, for example, an 80x80cm table is used, which holds 5 to 6 people. To hold 7 people or more, it is recommended to opt for a rectangular table, with 80x120cm, for example.
  • Choice of materials: Remember that lighter materials with light colors, such as glass, metal, and wood - painted white/beige - give the room a feeling of spaciousness, while heavier materials with dark colors, such as iron and wood - painted brown or black - make the space seem smaller, but make it cozier. It all depends on the objective you have planned for the place.

In decoration, a well thought-out composition always brings a more satisfactory result. With the architect's tips, it's even easier to elaborate something perfect for you, meeting your daily needs, besides the visual aesthetics.
