In the era of past paced communication, where the world has converted into a mass global village. There has been a sudden boom in population – and in turn, affordable housing; including, yet not conforming to Tiny Homes and Apartments. Now, the clicker with the reality of affordable housing is, that it may provide one with enough space to live, but by and far, going from the construct of human psyche, the space is never, enough.
When it comes to housing, even though, a person has a place to live, it may not be sufficient. Less is More, has become a contemporary that only ever worked when true modernism was actually a thing.
So, when the space is enough, yet, not enough – what to do? Invent hacks that would give that space an illusion of freedom – a series of tried and true methods that would not only conform with the character and identity of the space, but would give it a personalized touch, along with that certain oomph, that would kick the interior design in context.
Now, Small Style interior design is complicated in its essence because it demands a delivery that fits with stylistic, simplistic vogue, so reminiscent of the modern movement. But since the advent of post modernism and its contemporaries, the design world has never been the same again; people want a mixture of classic, colonial, simplistic, minimalistic and ornate.
So, how does one actually accomplish that – with the advance in smart furniture, that is not only functional, but also appeals to the aesthetics, decorating and interior designing has become a much more adventurous field.
Keeping that in mind, this article would further discuss the styles and aesthetics of a Corner Book Shelves in context with interior design and lighting.
1. Large Corner Wall Mount Shelf
Only slightly bigger in stature, it is decidedly more delicate and illusive than the Saganizer Unit. But its bulkiness can be maneuvered to fit several styles of interior designing – Queen Anne, Baroque, or even, Rococo. Its breath defines the character of any interior that it is set against – the wood of its physique highlighting the stature of its build. This shelf is perfect for show casing your favorite collection of books, photo frames of memories most cherished, and small baubles that complement your aesthetic.Check Price

With its wide-set, tall frame and ability to be a centerpiece of a room, clearly designed around it, it runs the product design gamut of a show-case, book shelf or a storage unit, depending on the psyche of the user.
The best place for it to become inherent with an interior setting would be the figurative center of a room, built in the Prairie Style theme – French windows, stone inlay, warm splashes of color, bright, natural light – and in the center, the Narrow Shelving Unit with its ladder style design.Check Price
3. Casual 5 Tier Corner Bookshelf
With a tall physique, lean and easy, forming a triangle on the top while supporting a wide set frame on the bottom – a three dimensional tetrahedron, if you will, with solid frames of wood in between, that serve as shelves – either for storing books, showcasing the small, decorative trinkets, plants or storage devices.
Such a style is slightly agrarian in nature, and inhibits the charm of an outland prerevolutionary; so the best style of interior design for it to be put in, would be either the Bauhaus, Colonial Revival, or Beaux Arts.
All three of them vary in aesthetics, but would, no doubt nurture the physique and design of this kind of a corner bookshelf – considering that it is built in deep-set tones, it would mix well with the bright and ornate style of the Beaux Arts, which valued vivid, natural light, decorative trinkets and thick, leather bound books – all of which would look stunning on this style of a shelf.Check Price

Available in a dark, deep-set, mahogany, the best placement for this shelf, would be in a corner that is in direct angle of light; natural and golden, near a window fixture with a billowy curtain.

7. Hanging Corner Storage, Cherry
Bulkier than its counter parts, this one does not have a base, and has to be attached on hinges and nails to the corner walls, behind. But the style is, no doubt, to emulate a Georgian or Prairie style home interior; its dark wood staining would be the perfect correlative to the stone and wood inlay style interior that, in turn, would highlight the shelf’s bulky physique and wide slabs.
This one, would be the quintessential show piece of the room, delivering, by flawlessly portraying wicker baskets, photo frames, books, flower vases and even, small, indoor plants.
8. Corner Zig Zag Hanging Wall Shelf
Coffee colored and deep-set, this zig-zag shelf-cum-book case is medium in stature and hanging in nature. The best way to highlight its build, would be to set it against a back ground, that is bright, popping and in complete contrast to the coffee colored shade of the built material itself – yellow, lemon, gold, or a mixture of all three of these colors would be an adequate blend!
Considering the color palate, the appropriate style of the built environment and the atmosphere that is being emulated, the choice would be either Retro, or Raj Style. While Retro would lean more towards the ‘funky’ punk style, Raj would be a complete contradiction – in that its color palate would be complemented by darker shades that would be at home with the texture of this style of a book case.
9. 5 Tier Large Corner Wall Mount Shelf, Walnut Shelves
Constructed with Walnut, and mahogany in texture, this shelf would be the perfect hanging for a Contemporary Style interior design.

10. Walnut Laminate Corner Shelf
Two-tiered, small, dark, yet wide in build, this corner book shelf would be a prime choice for a minimalist interior design.

So make sure, that the corner this shelf would be hung in, would be near a large window, so the light coming in through the portals, would set off the dark texture of the laminate, while reflecting off the lighter toned backdrop of the space, this shelf would be hung against.
Since, these book cases are essentially decorative, as well as functional, another style that fits well within the category of function follows form, while being aesthetically pleasing, is the ladder style book case. Following descriptions allow for discrepancies in styles and color schemes so that each one fits within a specific genre.
11. White Finish 5-Tier Ladder Bookcase Shelf
Leaning Tower Style, the Ladder Bookcase-come-shelf in the color white, is both classic and conventional, contemporary and traditional, depending on the kind of interior and lighting that you might want to put it in. Since, it is a lean-to design, and medium in height, the placement needs to be such that it is in the center of the room even by being to the side – so, preferably in the heart of the main wall.
Now, white can go against white, and still stand out, granted that the type of ornamentation and color scheme it is set against, complements it. So, if a white shelf is set against a white wall, then the bauble, ornaments, books and trinkets on it, should be in stark contrast – blood red, emerald green, navy blue and such.
12. Dark Espresso Brown Leaning Bookcase Bookshelf
If the roles are reversed, and the ladder style shelf is wooden in built and texture, then the design scheme and color palate would switch dramatically. To complement the browns of the texture, the complementary background would have to switch to warm colors – gold, cream or yellow.
In retrospect, the kind of baubles that could be put on the shelf would vary too – books of old world variety, leather bound, wicker baskets, wooden photo frames and the like.Check Price

WHITE CORNER SHELVES
White, as a color, can be translated into several meanings for several parts in the world. Similar is the case with designing palates and aesthetics – every design retains the individuality of the color, and with the structure and styles of corner wooden shelves, white could mean a variety of things within the context of a specific interior.

The egg shell white finish of this bookshelf, complete with its stark, clean, cut lines oozes Contemporary – with just the slightest touch of modern. Staying true to its aesthetic would mean, coupling it with a palate that would highlight the white of the finish – meaning the backdrop would have to be dark, but not dark enough – with shades of greys and browns, and plenty of natural light to let off the reflective qualities of the corner white shelf.

With a wide set frame and zero ornamentation, it is a cross between modern and contemporary – a hybrid breed that would fit into an interior that is just as good a merge of the two styles.
