If you have an awkward space in your home with an arched ceiling or a strange corner where nothing will fit, you know how difficult it can be to make this room feel more welcoming. An area with unusual angles can be challenging to decorate, but there are a couple of ways you can improve the space with the right discount window treatments, wall paint and accent decor. Here are some tips for transforming this eyesore into a room you'll want to show off to your friends.

1. Let light reign supreme.
Even the strangest, most difficult spaces can instantly feel better with more natural light in them. Consider bringing in cellular shades or easy-to-manage blinds to allow additional sunlight to flow into the space. This can make the room feel lighter, brighter and more welcoming to everyone who sees it.

2. Try different furniture angles.
Is your sofa or loveseat creating a dull impression in your already-awkward space? Make it a point to try rearranging your furnishings to revitalize the room. Midwest Living recommends placing your chairs at an angle to generate conversation and make it easier for people to feel comfortable in the space. Try different options until you find one that suits the area. In the end, you'll be happy you experimented!

3. Paint your walls.
Elle Decor recommends using pattern and paint on your walls to create a design that catches the eye. Furthermore, a beautiful wall can distract from the awkward shape of the room. Whether you love stripes or you can't get enough of paisley, look for a design that speaks to your personal taste. This can ensure you will be absolutely satisfied with it when you're done.

4. Choose unique furniture.
Because it's a unique space, you shouldn't be afraid of thinking outside of the box when selecting furniture for this room in your home. Take advantage of its unusual style by bringing in items that have one-of-a-kind looks of their own. Whether it's an odd-patterned sofa or a strangely shaped vase, the right decorative accents can pull your entire interior design together.

At the end of the day, there's only so much you can do about the shape and size of an awkward room. However, this doesn't mean that the space has to go to waste. Taking these tips into consideration can help you transform the room into another frequented area of your home.
