Cannot fix the gigantic gap.IanI bought the bookcase as a way of having storage and shelf space in a small office. Easy enough to assemble except when we got to the floor brackets. No matter how much we tried the gap kept tappering wider and wider the farther up you looked. And then the top connecting brackets aid in keeping that gap because of how wide they are. We are going to have to find other brackets or make our own and then shim the bottom of one of the bookcases. In all this is a terrible bookcase and it took longer to get them to sit together than it did to put them together. We ended up not even using the bottom bracers because they did nothing.
Not a corner shelfRodneyThey are 3 regular billy bookshelves. Ikea charge an extra $10 for this combo. It is not an actual corner shelf.
I like them, but wish it had doors designed for the corner setupLianiI bought two larger bookshelves and one smaller one to set up for my pantry as I have a very small apartment. I waited for over a month and a half to purchase the Oberg doors to go with it to find out that the doors don't fit when in the corner set up. Really not happy about this as nowhere could I find information that doors could not be used in this configuration before I drove 80 miles, got them to fit in my compact car, and lugged them to my third-floor walkup. Now I have to get them back to the store for a refund. I don't understand how the designers would think that no one might want to put doors on with in this configuration.
missing holes, defectiveQuinnwhen trying to assemble i realized that all the holes on the shelves were missing leaving it impossible to assemble on all 3 bookcases, now i have to drag them back to the store, disapointing and a waste of time
Great design except for the empty space behind the cornerJustinShelf is easily customizable and a modern, minimalist, and sleek white. Unfortunately the area behind the corner allows for a cat to fall and get stuck, which is an issue particularly if the bookshelf is anchored to the wall (like it should be according to the instructions) and if it is in use. Having at least a platform to bridge the gap at the top would be a nice safety mechanism for those with adventurous pets, to prevent them from having empty the shelf and detach it from the wall and itself.
Excellent for corner shelf anchor to my updated closetErinLove this shelf as the corner for updates to my closet. Perfect height and shelving shouted make it work perfectly in my master.
Great corner unit!CarlaSo happy you have this option! It looks great in my small room! Easy to assemble!
Bugs 🐜 🐛 🐞 in boxesVietI bout 4 wall units & it cost me $300 for handyman $300 to install. it was complicated and he needed another person to hold as he installed. The biggest disappointment was there where bugs in the boxes, huge bugs like water bugs, wood bugs & carpenter ants. I guess the shelves being stored in the warehouse. Full of bugs while opening box the bugs scattered all over my house! I was spaying & stomping as he was opening boxes! Once he got them all installed I examined the quality & they’re not made very well, not very sturdy and if they had to hold a lot of books there’s no way those shelves with hold up!

Purchased Billy corner unitCathyI wanted something for a corner of my craft room. I saw the Billy corner unit and thought that would be great. It was out of stock at my local store but they said they would text me when it arrived. It arrived sooner than expected. I received both a text and an email. I didn't measure correctly so was not able to use all three pieces in my corner like I had intended. i was able to use two of the pieces there and the third piece in another location. I was so happy to have that flexibility. They were very sturdy and also easy to put together. I am loving them!
Weird GapsVictoriaEasy enough to put together but even with the corner hardware there is a larger gap visible at the top vs at the bottom. I can't get this to look straight with any of my adjutments.
Great BookcasesVerified BuyerThese were easy to put together and they look great in my craft/children's books room.
The Corner is PERFECT!Verified BuyerVery easy to assemble and secure to the wall! Sturdy and nice looking!
Simple, stylish and does exactlyMariaSimple, stylish and does exactly what we wanted it for.
Great concept, difficult to execute.PaulWhile the price and build is as you would expect with any Billy bookcase, joining these three bookcases to create the corner is a challenge. The gap between the top and bottom of the bookcases is difficult to get symmetrical even with the corner hardware.
Billy corner unit! Great Buy!MartiI purchased these for my studio. The great thing about it is that the design is flexible; if you want them flat to the wall, you can do that, if you need them to turn the corner, they do that too! Easy modification! Also easy assembly!
Best shelves everJoanneI am so pleased with these shelves. I bought 4 of the wider and 3 of the narrow ones and transformed my walk in closet into my library/supplies/clothes closet. We downsized recently so i have so much less space I could not display all my books. I downsized only to the ones I like best and am very happy how it turned out.
Plus I put them together myself and I am 67 years old. My husband only helped carry them!
Always easy to set upJenniferAlways easy to set up and we love how versatile Billy is!
