This is probably the most important aspect to consider when buying a new bookshelf. Even though it is placed at a corner, it should fit in with the rest of the home furniture's design.
Do not measure up from the floor. If the floor is not perfectly level, your shelf will not be either. Make one mark at the desired height and then using the level, transfer it to the other wall. A corner shelf support can be as simple as a piece of one inch by two inch material. If the shelf is two feet wide on each wall you will need to install one twenty-four inch piece and one twenty-three inch piece (nominal) on the walls. You can router the edges with a fancy design or just round them over as you choose. Once the support pieces are in place (ledgers) you can construct the shelf itself. An inexpensive shelf can be cut from plywood with a nice front curved edge. By using a piece of three quarter inch wide or larger edge trim to finish off the cut edge, you can paint this shelf and have a great unit. If you wish to stain the shelf you will need to either edge glue and build up a wide board or obtain a twenty-four inch wide board from a saw mill.
There are also lots of corner shelves available as wall-mounted wood shelving to give you more storage space in the kitchen and add some attractive decoration to the decor. For anyone who is cramped up in a small office all day, some corner-shaped office shelving might be just the thing to clear some of the junk off your desk. And you can even get useful wall-mounted metal shelving for corners to put in the garage and get some of your stuff up off the ground! In fact, Rubbermaid Shelving makes a very useful floor standing corner unit especially for use as garage shelving, I remember seeing it on Amazon Marketplace.
