Shelving Design Idea – Shelves That Wrap Around Corners

SHELVING IDEA - Shelves That Wrap Around Corners

 

Having shelves that wrap around corners in your home is a great way to maximize space. They also keep things easily accessible and add a unique design element to your home.

Here are 9 examples of how people have included wrap around shelves in their homes to inspire your next shelf project.

 

1. These shelves run part way down the hallway, wrap around the corner, and continue into the living room, allowing the decor to seamlessly flow from one space to the next.
