Yes, it is called a corner bookcase, but that doesn't mean that it has to be put in the corner of a room. Its unique shape allows it to be placed next to anything that has a right angle. For instance, if you have the luxury of a spacious room, you could place it next to an armoire or cabinet. If the two pieces match stylistically, this will look like a natural extension and will give the room continuity.
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.
Another corner unit that really caught my eye is the Wicker Two-door Bathroom Corner Shelving Unit. It's a tall and slim unit which is excellent for small bathrooms and it has four wood shelves and a handy cupboard underneath. It has loads of style and character and would give your bathroom the very appealing old fashioned cottage look which is so popular at the moment.
