There is an Infinite Variety of Corner Bookcases

Updated on July 17, 2009

If you’re currently looking to buy some furniture for your home, particularly of the high class storage variety, might I suggest taking a look at the corner bookcase? There are thousands of different kinds of corner bookcases to choose from and you can really tailor them to match any room’s décor. White corner bookcases for white themed rooms, a black corner bookcase for those industrial or minimalist palettes, maybe an oak corner bookcase for your foyer, anything is possible with this versatile furniture piece.

A furniture piece for the Intellectual

The corner bookcase is fantastic for displaying any number of things but its primary design was to showcase your book collection. If you like to buy your books rather than rent them from the library, or if you happen to have a huge book collection left over from your college years, a corner bookcase would be a great place to store them all for easy access.

A tall corner bookcase can make your room look like a library if you have all the books to fill it and you can expand on the corner bookcase idea by getting some wall bookcases to put on either side of the corner. The corner bookcase makes a perfect wedge between other bookcases if you have an exceedingly large book collection and want to keep them all stored in one place. Think of that room as your library wing.

Where can I find the right corner bookcase?

Let me first say that you can find these bookcases anywhere that sells furniture. You could find some assembly required ones even at Target and Wal-Mart if you don’t mind the low quality materials they are made out of. I’ve found a few good ones at Bed Bath and Beyond and they have held up pretty well but the best corner bookcases I’ve ever found have been at Bookcases Galore.

When you shop online you have the entire world at your fingertips, especially when it comes to furniture. Sites like Amazon and Overstock have a massive variety of furniture pieces to choose from if you can’t find what you’re looking for there you can always just go back to Google and start all over again. My advice, when shopping online for things, is to always read the commentary given by at least five previous buyers. That can give you a decent cross section of the opinions of the piece and you’ll learn about how easy it was to put together and how durable the wood has been and how sturdy the bookcase is holding up.

Make an informed decision about your corner bookcase

Furniture placement and purchasing is an integral part in personalizing the look of your home and you should not take it lightly. If you are living alone you should make sure to get something that you completely enjoy. You’re going to have to look at it for a long time afterwards so don’t even bother buying something if you don’t absolutely love it. If you live with someone else like a roommate or a spouse, you’ll want to get their opinion on the piece you’re planning to buy as well. It would really be bad if you brought home a big corner bookcase you thought was perfect only to find that the person you live with hates it and never wants to see it in the house.
