Corner bookshelves – Normally you would purchase a bookcase, but yes … What do you do if you have no room for it? Then you are looking for a handy alternative. When you think of book shelves, you always think of long shelves that run along the wall and stop at the corners. However, that does not have to be: you can also have your bookshelves around the corner. Not only do you make so much extra space on the shelf, but it also looks interesting.
Shelves in unused places
On average, the ceilings in a house are about three meters high. Since as people in general we are less than two meters long, we should therefore keep a piece of space above our heads. You cannot really use that space for anything, because if you put frequently used stuff, for example, you are always climbing on chairs. You can install beautiful bookshelves there, because you use relatively little (you just pick up a book now and then) and you can still put them in sight.
Books in the corridor
When we look at usable space, the corridor is actually always skipped. That is strange, because usually you still have room for a narrow cabinet with books. The cupboard on the picture is much nicer, because it is built into the wall so it does not cost any extra space! Around a door or window frame: It looks cool, is practical and does not cost you any valuable space that you would like to use elsewhere.
In the wardrobe
If you really do not have enough room for a separate bookcase, you can also combine it with other furniture. For example, you can make space for your books by arranging your wardrobe efficiently, so that you get a combination cabinet consisting of a wardrobe and a bookcase.
Under the stairs
Many houses have a large unused space under the stairs. Whether there is a cupboard that you do not do much with or that it is an open space in your living room: you can always use the strange corner by fitting bookshelves into it. So you get a sturdy triangular bookcase with space for a large stock!
The cooking island
An unexpected, but useful place to store books is the cooking island. This generally contains a lot of unused space because only one side of the kitchen cabinets are made. So you can easily convert the other side into a bookcase, which gives you a lot of space to get rid of books. Hoping it was useful for you, see you next time!
