Corner shelves are a great way to get more storage space out of awkward corners. Here are 6 ideas for corner shelves that make use of what would otherwise be empty spaces.
1. Float Them

4. Customize Them
When installing shelves that fit into the corner, you might want to consider having custom shelves designed to fit your space perfectly. This also gives you the opportunity to have the corners rounded for a softer look in your space.

6. Mix & Match
Not all the shelves need to tuck into the corner. Having some end at the wall and others continuing to wrap gives you extra storage and makes for a more unique display.
