Corner Cabinet Bookcases

Updated On

Corners seem to be the most under-utilized space in most rooms. So it makes sense that a corner you can use for storage or displaying collections is better than leaving every corner empty. That’s where corner cabinet bookcases come into their own. With a corner bookshelf unit, you can stack your books and add plants, small pieces of artwork and knick-knacks. Our design team has curated six corner cabinet bookcases that will work for small or large spaces and add a decorative touch as well as practical storage solutions.

Bamboo Corner Bookcase

This freestanding corner bookcase has a stable three-leg design and comes with wall brackets that will stop the bookshelf from tipping over. As well, the three legs have floor glides to prevent the legs from scratching. The corner bookcase requires two people to assemble the unit but doesn’t need any extra tools to do so.

Designer Advice:

We love the unique design of this bamboo corner bookcase. Each shelf has a 4.7” wide vertical end shelf that lets you stack books straight into the corner and prevents them from falling over. The end shelves are offset on every other shelf, creating an asymmetrical design. Use the portion without an end shelf to display a small plant, tall slender vase or two, or whatever collectibles you want to display.

Open Frame Corner Bookcase

Latitude Run®

The open frame on this corner bookcase unit has X braces on each shelf end to provide extra strength and stability. It comes with adjustable leg pads to make sure the bookcase is stable on an uneven or carpeted floor. Each shelf can hold up to 50 lbs — in total, the bookcase can hold up to 600 lbs of books, magazines and other items.

Designer Advice:

Both sides of this corner bookcase’s shelves measure 25.5” from the corner, which gives you lots of storage and is perfect for a bigger blank corner. The shelves are a mix of differing heights, from 10.62” to 11.81”. This staggered look adds to the visual interest and lets you play with different book and decor item sizes. Including one or two small lamps on the shelves will let you create a warm glow in a corner that might be darker than the rest of your room.

Designer Advice:

The vibrant red finish on this corner book shelf will draw everyone’s eyes to it. For even more attention, buy two of these and install them in the same room. And if you’re creating a bold and colorful space, fill the shelves with a mix of other vibrant colors, as well as lots of white and a little black.

Vintage Corner Bookcase

You’ll need 22.24” across the front of a corner for this 15.75” deep corner bookcase. It’s made from sturdy 0.6” thick manufactured wood and weighs 63.8 lbs when fully assembled. The lower cabinet door conceals a storage space measuring 25” high.

Designer Advice:

In a nod to the ‘50s and ‘60s, this vintage corner bookcase cabinet features five all-white shelves with a single bright pop of yellow on its one cabinet door. The balance of the bookshelves is open shelves that can be filled with whatever collections you have. The rounded fronts of the shelves remind us of the Art Deco movement at its most modern.
