A shelf is an important part to any room. A shelf will add not only design but function as well as it is a great place to display decorative items. Why be ordinary with shelving options? Instead, add an amazing large corner shelf. Corners are often wasted areas of a room, but there is no need to loose valuable space when there can be a really creative shelf in its place instead. Go big or go home with these amazing large corner shelf ideas.

Floating shelves galore

For a truly amazing large corner shelf design, try these multiple floating shelves. The shelves here literally make the room so interesting and unique. There are multiple shelves that start at about mid wall height and travel all the way up to the ceiling. The shelves are floating shelves, which gives a very modern and hip look. Finally the shelves are white, against a white wall which makes them very chic, bright and airy but also makes it seem like the books are floating themselves, a very cool effect.

Industrial and plentiful

This amazing large corner shelf unit is perfect for an industrial styled room. The shelves are made of metal and are super slim and slick, not taking up too much space. There are so many shelves, that start near the floor and travel all the way to the ceiling. This unit is the perfect office accessory to store books and other items. Finally the shelf unit has a matching desk attached to it, also very slender and sleek, the perfect companion to any industrial styled office space.

Built in greatness

What is better than a built in shelf? Not much! This amazing large corner shelf unit is built in greatness. The shelves are built into the corner of a really unique wall. The wall is a slate green colour, which is a great colour for a room and really stands out. The shelves are a wood colour, matching the gorgeous dark wood floors of the room. The shelves are plentiful, and start at the bottom of the wall, traveling to the ceiling. There are so many options for storing books, and decorative pieces.

Minimalist fashion

Looking for minimalist design but still want an amazing large corner shelf? This is the perfect piece. The shelf unit consists of sleek, metal bars with thin pieces of wood for the shelf.
