Kids Corner Bookcase

Updated On

Kids love to read and learn from books. That is largely inspired by watching their parents. And just like their parents, they also want a bookshelf. For the corner of their room, put in a kids corner bookshelf and let them start their own library for the home. They will want to continually add to it just like mom and dad do. Who knows? It could inspire them to become a writer.

Buying Guide

How tall should a kids corner bookcase be?

The height of a kids corner bookcase should be decided in relation to that of your child. For toddlers, we don’t recommend going above 3-4 feet, otherwise it’d be too difficult for them to reach it. You might also want to avoid shelves so as to discourage them from climbing onto the bookcase.

As for slightly older kids, the correct height will depend on whether or not you’re planning on replacing the bookcase in a few years.

If you are, just check how high they can reach without stretching (perhaps by using one of your existing bookcases as an example). If you want the bookcase to grow with them, just opt for a taller model but consider keeping their favorite items on the lower shelves. For extra peace of mind, you should secure your new kids corner bookcase to the wall to avoid tipping accidents.

How do you style a kids corner bookcase?

A kid's corner bookcase is a versatile piece of furniture that doubles as a bookshelf and storage area. Style your kid's bookcase with pictures, stuffed animals, or figurines. Fill mason jars with colored pencils and crayons and set them on the bookcase shelves. You can also put your kids’ favorite toys on the lower parts of the bookshelf so they can easily grab them to play with. If you use your bookshelf this way, consider your child’s age and only put safe items within their reach.

Use higher shelves of your kids' corner bookcase as additional storage for items only you will need to access, like clothes and diapers. Put these items in wicker baskets or canvas cubbies and set them on the shelves. With these extra uses, don’t forget to use your kids' bookcase as a reading hub where all their favorite storybook covers are easily visible.

What are the best materials for a kids corner bookcase?

The best materials for a kid's corner bookcase would be a material that resists sagging and retains its structure and finishing for as long as possible. That said, we've found that bookcases made from solid wood boards are the best.

However, solid wood is a costly option, so plywood that has a hardwood veneer is highly recommended for quality and cost-effectiveness.

Another advantage is that it is stronger than some solid softwoods like pine. Plywood bookcases are also available in different veneers like teak, mahogany, cherry, and walnut.
