Wardrobe, made by hand, looks interesting and unusual.


At first glance, it seems that this prosaic object can only stand in the kitchen near the dining table. However, in the corner it will also play a significant role, especially if we are talking about, for example, the corridor. On such a chair, you can sit down, put on a jacket while you undress, or place some necessary items there if there are not enough shelves or drawers in the room.

On the stool in the living room you can put books, put a vase with flowers.

Whatnot or rack

If you have a small apartment or you are a fan of minimalism in the interior, then instead of a massive wardrobe we offer to purchase a shelving unit. It is as functional as its “elder brother”, but at the same time, it takes up much less space and does not “press” with its presence. With it, you can increase storage space in the room. On the open shelves you can place family photos, books, souvenirs, personal items. Instead of a rack, you can use a bookcase or a decorated staircase that looks more elegant and "lighter".

Ladder-rack necessarily draws attention to things that are on it.


No matter which room you want to beat an empty corner: in the bedroom, in the living room or in the kitchen. The chair will be appropriate to look everywhere. In a duet with a small elegant dressing table, it will create a great place to relax, where you can sit down in the evening with your favorite book or a cup of aromatic coffee.

Choose a bright chair that will accent the room.

TV table

Although the TV stand now is not a fashionable trend in the interior (many believe that it only takes up valuable square meters), however, if the width of the living room does not allow using a plasma with a large screen, then the stand will become your main assistant. In this case, we recommend using the "diagonal rule" - in one corner to place the sofa, and in the second - the TV. So you will save space in the room, and provide yourself with a high level of comfort.

Corner cabinets for TVs - a non-standard solution in a modern interior.

Furniture corner

This option is the most prosaic and practical (not counting the ideas with shelves), especially when it comes to the kitchen. Although, if you are used to non-standard solutions to problems, the furniture corner will find its place in the bedroom and in the living room, for example, under the window. It will be a good alternative to overall sofas, armchairs, as well as help create a comfortable place for communication, games, get-togethers with friends and relatives. The main thing is to choose a beautiful, aesthetic model that will be ideally combined with the general style of the room.

The kitchen corner is an economical, practical and convenient furniture option.
