A corner bookcase saves floor space and gives you extra places to display collectibles, memorabilia and, of course, books! In small rooms, corner shelves help add needed storage and display areas while taking up virtually no floor space. In large rooms, a simple shelf in the corner can tie together two wall bookcases, joining them seamlessly. There are several ways to get the maximum use out of your space, and learning the art of storage allows you to keep more of your items and display them proudly.
Corners are one area that often get unused and overlooked in our homes, but there are lots of nooks and crannies to add storage or display space around the home. An entertainment center is primarily for the television, Blu-Ray player and perhaps a gaming system, but a model with shelves around the unit gives you more space for discs, displaying items and even books. Roomy models by Beacon, Crystal or Metro offer tons of space besides what you need for the home electronics system.
Ottomans and bench seats are often overlooked for storage space. Ricardo, Manhattan, Franko and other designs are available with generous storage space. Available in modern designs to match the latest living room furnishings, these ottomans come in durable materials such as leather, polyester, solid hardwood and others.
A low corner bookcase is handy in the master bedroom, bathroom, kids' rooms and guest room. In a small room, the case can double as a nightstand or end table next to the bed or a chair. Taller versions for the living room, den and dining room balance well with larger furniture groupings. Some are sturdy enough for potted plants, heavy crystal vases and larger volumes of books.
Headboards with book cases come with or without doors. For books and trinkets, choose an open model for display. If you tend to stash paperwork, your reading glasses and last Sunday's newspaper near the bed, opt for a shelf with doors, so you can quickly tidy the room each morning.
If you have a long desk in your home office, consider how much unused space is underneath your desk, begging to be taken advantage of. A low bookshelf, such as one by Amato or Sedona, fits neatly under your desk and gives you a place to store paperwork, office supplies, reference books and other items. Another technique for maximizing office space is an L-shaped desk with plenty of drawers and bookshelves, such as those by Atlas or Saxony.
