Bookcases & Bookshelves

SORT BY:
A corner bookshelf fits neatly in a corner and makes good use of an often forgotten part of a room. This compact piece of home furniture is available in different styles and sizes. Browse the wide selection of corner bookcases available on Staples to find the right one to increase shelf storage space at home.

Turn Corners into Handy Storage Spaces
The chief appeal of corner bookshelves is their space-saving design. By having perpendicular shelves, this furniture wedges into a tight nook and turns a right-angled wall into a central part of a room's decor. Corner bookcases are particularly suitable for small rooms. They also work well in large rooms by increasing the amount of usable shelving space available. These bookshelves are neat storage solutions as well as showcases for interior decor items. The shelves can hold collectibles, kids' toys, accent pieces and picture frames as well as books. Having a bookcase in the corner of a room also keeps it away from direct sunlight and saves books from prematurely yellowing.

Choosing the Right Corner Bookshelf for Your Home
Factors to consider when looking for corner shelf units include design, build materials, size and shelf space. Corner bookcases come in a wide variety of designs, ranging from antique and contemporary to modern and minimalist. The style to choose depends on personal preference. Just make sure the chosen design complements the rest of the room's furniture. While solid wood bookshelves are the most popular, other commonly used materials include MDF, laminate, metal and glass. The size of a corner bookcase is another important consideration. Make sure the height, width and depth of a chosen bookshelf are right for the corner where you intend to place it. Lastly, ensure that the gap between shelves is wide enough for your books and display items.

Are there Hanging Corner Bookshelves?
Yes, there are several different styles of wall-mounted corner bookcases. Some look like standard corner shelves without legs. Others are meant to be mounted about mid-way between the ceiling and floor. One of the most popular styles is the floating corner bookshelf with zigzag shelves alternating on the two sides of a right-angle wall. Wall-mounted bookshelves are usually made of MDF rather than solid wood. This lightweight wood product reduces the overall weight hanging off the wall.

How do You Keep a Corner Bookcase Stable?
Tall, freestanding corner bookcases can occasionally tip, especially when young children pull on them or attempt to climb them. To keep the bookshelf from falling over, secure it to the wall. There are different ways to do this. Heavy corner bookcases need L-shaped metal brackets. Velcro straps are another option. With these, there is no need to drill into the bookcase.

Can You Use an Etagere as a Corner Bookshelf?
Yes. An etagere is a simple shelving unit with an open back. This design makes it an ideal bookcase for homes with modern and minimalist decors. Etageres provide an open, airy look in darker corners, since they don't fully cover the walls. Typical corner etageres have a pyramid shape and sector-shaped tray shelves.
