The Space-Saving Custom Corner Cabinet

by Kelly Richardson

Many interior decorators consider it an unpardonable sin to clutter your bedroom or family room with bulky cabinet sets. But without bulky cabinets, how are you going to display your family memorabilia? With a custom wood corner cabinet, you can do just that without compromising precious space.

First of all, who ever said that cabinets have to be bulky? The corner cabinet is a case in point. Corner cabinets are unique because of one 45-degree angle corner that fits squarely in the corners of your room. The side opposite the corner is typically a semicircle with some sort of molding around the edge. Corner cabinets can range from the simple to the ornate. The biggest benefit for you is that you can use the space in your room that is traditionally wasted. You also have the choice between a full on cabinet design or a hollowed out rack design. Both work and look equally well.

Corner Cabinet: Construction

  • The Design. The corner cabinet has a 45 degree side that is perfect for corners. The cabinet comes fully enclosed or open to suit your needs.
  • The Materials. While most any wood will satisfy the requirements for construction, keep in mind that the nicer the wood, the nicer the cabinet.
  • The Options. If you have your corner cabinet custom made, you can get decorative designs cut into the wood. Stains are also a popular option.

Another benefit of the corner cabinet is its flexibility when it comes to displaying your favorite pieces. Here are some decorating ideas for you to incorporate into your corner cabinet display.

Corner Cabinet: Display Ideas

  • Photos Galore. The height of the corner cabinet makes it perfect for larger photos. Eight-by-10-inch photos fit easily into the large sections.
  • Flora and Fauna. One of the more popular ways to decorate a corner cabinet is to include several potted plants and flowers.

Beautiful corner cabinets can be purchased at antique markets or fine furniture stores. For custom design, contact your local furniture craftsman.
