The Room Completer: Wooden Corner Accent Cabinets and Their Secret Powers

Hello there, dear reader! Today we're going to talk about something that's been on my mind for a while: the power of corner accent cabinets. You know what I'm talking about, right? Those little pieces of furniture that sit in the corner of your room and add a touch of style and sophistication to your space. They're like the cherry on top of your interior design sundae!

First things first: let's talk about why corner accent cabinets are so great. For starters, they're a fantastic way to make use of an otherwise wasted corner of a room. You know what I'm talking about - that awkward space between the wall and the door that's just begging for a little something-something. A corner accent cabinet is the perfect solution! It not only fills that empty space, but it also adds some much-needed storage for all your knick-knacks and trinkets.

But it's not just about practicality - corner accent cabinets also bring a certain je ne sais quoi to a room. They're a subtle way to add some personality and flair to your decor. Here at WOODEN SOUL we curate corner accent cabinets carved in one of our four style pillars: Midcentury Modern, Scandinavian, Modern Farmhouse, or Reclaimed Industrial. You can choose the one that complements your existing decor, or go bold and choose one that makes a statement of contrast, all on its own.

Now, let's talk about materials. There are all sorts of materials that corner accent cabinets can be made from, but this wouldn't be WOODEN SOUL without talking about why wood is the most good. In my humble (and totally correct) opinion, artisanal wood is the way to go. Why, you ask? Well, for starters, it's durable and long-lasting. When you invest in a piece of furniture made from high-quality wood, you know that it's going to stand the test of time. You won't have to worry about replacing it any time soon. Say no to cheap big box stores and particle board.

But it's not just about durability - artisanal wood is also innately beautiful. Each piece is unique, with its own natural grain patterns and colors. Plus, there's something special about knowing that your furniture was crafted by a skilled artisan who put their heart and soul into creating something beautiful and functional. You'll get a little joy from reflecting on it every time you enter the room.

PRINE Antiqued Painted Accent Cabinet

But what makes an accent cabinet a "corner accent cabinet," anyway? Well, it's important to first shed the idea that the cabinet needs to be triangular and somehow fit directly into a corner. Some of the best accent cabinets for corners are rectangular, creating a bit more of a casual or irreverent approach to design. Take this example, our gorgeous PRINE Antiqued Painted Accent Cabinet. This thing is an absolute beauty, and is narrow enough to suit any corner, and instead of "adding" to the feeling of a corner, it removes the sensation of a corner at all. 

And let's not forget about sustainability. When you choose artisanal wood, you're supporting small businesses and local craftsfolk who are committed to using sustainable and eco-friendly practices. Plus, you can feel good knowing that your furniture is made from renewable resources, rather than contributing to the depletion of our planet's natural resources or with the production of harmful plastics or chemicals.

So let's slap something in that corner today. WOODEN SOUL's corner accent cabinets are a fantastic addition to any room. They're practical, stylish, and add a touch of personality to your decor. Click the example photos above, or explore our wider collection of accent cabinets here.
