If you are that concerned I would put tape over the sharp corners and use a
cane! 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

Subject: [tabi] Avoiding Corners

I just had a close encounter with a sharp corner within my house which
resulted in a laceration, Band-Aid, and icepack. I have to admit to being
lazy and not trailing along another wall for guidance but I just didn't feel
like walking around so restricted. 
    I'd like to know what recommendations anyone has to help avoid these
dangerous 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 I
couldn'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!
