Houses often have nooks and awkward spaces that are difficult to fill. If you are in need of storage space, why not get creative and build your own corner bookshelf in those hard to decorate areas. Here are a few top DIY ideas to help you spice up those awkward corner walls in your abode.
Build A Corner Shelving System
If you have a corner wall in your office or spare room and could do with added storage, take some time out and create your very own distinct corner shelving unit using wooden base boards and wall brackets. We love this adjustable version from a Beautiful Mess.Industrial Pipe Racks
Get that modern Industrial style and create an eye-catching corner bookshelf using some old industrial pipes you may have lying around the garage. This project will give them some new purpose. It entails mounting them on the wall in an original pattern that leaves just enough space to accommodate books between them and the wall.
Positive or Negative Shelving
The shape of your awkward corners is what determines the best shelf that you should create for them. We love this small shelf from the Decoist that can work for any corner, and it is easy to make as you only need a few small wood pieces and nails or screws.Triangular Corner Shelves
Fill a small corner space with versatile and easy to make triangular floating shelves. Use reclaimed wood for a rustic design and cut the lumber into some triangular shapes to fit the shape of the corner, supporting them from below with some small straight pieces. Fill the entire space with a column of these shelves and use for storage, décor or books. Find a full tutorial here.
Layered Corner Shelves
That lonely corner in your living room could do with a new lease on life with shelves such as these beauties from A Home West. They are in a hanging patterned style, with each shelf overlapping the other. You will need to plan your brackets and the overall pattern before installing the untreated pine boards for an impressive end result.Whatever your choice, opt for something that you love and that will add visual appeal to your awkward spaces.
