Bond angles can influence the way the atoms are arranged. Electron densities such as an atom itself or even lone pairs of electrons can greatly alter the shape. The order of the strength of repulsion goes as follows:

Lone pair e - Lone pair e > Atom - lone pair e > atom - atom

Lone pair electrons take up more space thus repulsion of bond angles occur.
