Small spaces are hard to decorate especially if there are items that need to sit on shelves, and wall shelves are not an option. A great space saving tip is to use corner shelves. They take up less floor space and sit in the corner out of the way. They are a great way to display collectibles, figurines, crafts, trophies and other items that need to be displayed in a home.
Furnishing an empty room can be fairly difficult. Finding space to put extra things in an already furnished room is even more difficult. This is why you turn to corner shelves. Corner wall shelves allow you to use those corners, where nothing else useful will fit, for convenient storage and decoration. Corner shelves can be wood slats attached directly to the wall, or any form of bookshelf, drawer set, rack, or stackable boxes that fit snugly into your corner. They are perfect for any storage; books, crafts, files, fruit holder, photo displays… Nearly anything in your home that has “no place,” make a place for it. In the corner. With corner shelves.
You can buy shelving, of course, of any quality or material. Solid wood decorative pieces are beautiful. Plastic stackable shelves are inexpensive and functional. Even more exciting, however, would be to build those corner shelves yourself. It’s a basic woodworking shop class project. It will take less than a day, yet provide a lifetime of creative confidence.
What will you need? Using plywood and cheap pine for an edging, a drill, jigsaw, and router, you can create a simple, practical, and good looking corner shelf. Look up some woodworking instructions at the library or surf around online. You can stain the plywood great colors, or paint it in just as many shades. Hang beads from the underside. Make the shelves in progressively larger sizes for a great design choice
Why is it so easy to buy things and so hard to find places to put them? I don’t know, but in my search for the answer I’ve come across some great corner shelving ideas that have helped me find storage space I didn’t even know I had! Take a look and see what you think
