If you are placing it beside another cabinet, make sure that the height of the new corner book shelf is similar to the cabinet. You do not wish to have the cabinet dwarfing the corner bookcase and vice versa.
Taking measurements is such an important step that you should probably do it twice. You don't want to go to all the trouble of shopping for and buying a wood corner bookcase, only to bring it home and find that it doesn't fit in its designated spot. Determine the height that you're looking for. For certain rooms, a wood corner bookcase that is the same height as your couches or coffee tables provides the right amount of visual symmetry, while other rooms will call for a taller bookcase. Depending on the amount of floor space available to you, you'll need to choose between a free-standing corner book case and a wall-mounted one.
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.
