If possible, you might put a small rug there. We have a lot of stairs in our house and we use rugs for speed bumps.

If you are that concerned I would put tape over the sharp corners and use acane! The other thing is to get sited person to help you memorize where things are in your house and get their input on what they think could be done that is inexpensive to help you with safety around the house. Just my thoughts.

I have to admit to beinglazy and not trailing along another wall for guidance but I just didn't feellike walking around so restricted. I'd like to know what recommendations anyone has to help avoid thesedangerous obstacles in my home. I was thinking of some way to mark the floor around sharp corners to properly indicate I'm within a dangerous spot but Icouldn't think of anything which would work. Alternately, I'd like to know if anyone has recommendations on how I can find some attractive barrier, like some cushioning, to put on those corners which would make them not so sharp and dangerous if I do encounter them unexpectedly. I appreciate all recommendations as I'm really tired of worrying about scarring my face on unexpected household accidents. Thanks!
