When you’re living in a small space, every little inch of square footage counts, including those awkward corners you can’t seem to fill up correctly. You might’ve shoved a side table into that space, placed a plant on top, and called it a day. Or maybe you’re currently using that corner for a lamp that rarely gets turned on, or maybe there’s actually nothing there at all. It’s just too awkward!

If that’s the case, then these Target finds are going to change the way you use your corners forever because these pieces are specifically designed to fit into those tight spaces. You’ll never have to worry about the eyesore that comes with having a blank or underused space again. The Haverhill Corner Shelf, for example, is a four-tiered piece that snugs up into room corners and provides extra storage for books, plants, decor objects, and more.

“I use this in the corner of my bedroom, and it really warms the space up,” one Target shopper wrote in their review. “It’s a great way to showcase flowers and photos … I like that the shelves have a lip on each end to keep things from falling off. It also adds a nice aesthetic look to it.”

And because it’s just over a foot wide and a foot deep, it’s not going to encroach on valuable flat wall space, either. 

Nor will this cabinet from Threshold, which is ideal for using as a mini cocktail bar, a side table, or a TV stand for smaller units. 

“Quick and easy to put together,” one reviewer wrote. “The gold pulls are a nice classy touch. It has a magnet that helps keep the metal doors closed. Fits perfectly in our dining room.”

Never waste a corner again. These brilliant furniture pieces will make great use of all your square footage and will look good doing it, too.
