(Update – This product shown above and detailed in this article is currently unavailable but there is another accessory that is available that is pretty much the exact same product and is called an Office Cubicle Floating Corner Shelf. All links in this article will point to the available corner cubicle storage rack.)
A Corner Cubicle Storage Shelf will Expand Office Storage
I am always looking for cubicle accessories which will increase my storage capabilities within my cubicle at work.
Well, I recently came across another shelf that actually sits on top of my new cubicle walls. It is called a Corner Cubicle Storage Shelf.
My corner cube shelf seen at the top of this article I use to hold, believe it or not, baby wipes that I use to wipe down my desk.
Surprisingly, they are cheaper than your typical Lysol wipes and last much longer. I also use it to hold my compressed gas duster that I use regularly for my keyboard and any place I cannot easily clean in my office.

Within the past year, my cubicle moved from one floor to another in my company. I wrote about my cubicle transformation in an article displaying my many cubicle accessories.
Another twist was that the type of cubicle changed from my previous cubicle. I was hoping to have a privacy door for my cubicle but no such luck. Believe me, I asked for one but I guess that request was pushing it at the time.
My Former Corner Cube Shelf Shown Below
As you can see from the image below my cubicle walls have glass on the top part now which is a big difference from my previous cubicle. If you look closely, I can see into my neighbor’s cubicle which can be good at times and not so good at others.
My Current Cubicle Corner Shelf Shown Below
Years ago I picked up the corner shelf depicted above which works great since there are needles that hook into my cubicle walls. Well, recently I picked up a cubicle corner storage shelf which connects to the corner of a cubicle at the top of the walls which is above the glass windows.
At the time I purchased it I thought it would be wide enough for my cubicle wall thickness. As it turned out, it works but it doesn’t perfectly fit the top of the walls as seen below.
It was about 1/2” too short, as you can see above, to wrap totally around my cubicle walls BUT it stayed there without a problem and I was able to hang some wipes and some compressed gas in the corner of my office as you can see in the image to the left.
Obviously I would recommend purchasing a corner storage rack that fits your cubicle walls perfectly but this actually did the trick.
You should make it a point to measure the width of your cubicle walls before purchasing this item. I would say that a 2″ wall would hold this storage rack perfectly. You can see the dimensions below of the storage rack.

If you think you could use this in your own cubicle you should make it a point to check the width of your cubicle walls.
