This wasnt always the case, though, as books themselves and bookcases were incredibly expensive items that could only be bought by the highest of society. They were a symbol of wealth, status and intellectuality that marked nobles and academics. How things have changed! These days bookcases and bookshelves are within the price range of everyone.
A benefit of many kinds of modern bookcases or bookshelves is that they are very, very easy to install with only a few basic tools such as a powerdrill or allen key. In other cases, such as with the stackable foldable bookshelf, there is no need for any kind of installation what so ever.
The bookcase should be open to better display your favorite books. Another design is to build doors at the bottom around 30 tall for storage of less used books. Taller bookcases can include a built in ladder for those people who have large libraries.
You can find bookcases with glass doors that protect your reading material from dust particles and childrens gooey fingers. Lawyer bookcases have glass doors that open up and slide in. They are classic and gorgeous, but do keep in mind, however, that they do not come with adjustable shelves. If you want glass doors, but prefer adjustable shelves, you might like a bookcase with glass door that open up to the side like French Doors.
There are a large range of styles of bookcase, that range from the classic three tier case, to the folding bookshelf, the corner bookshelf or even the wall mounted bookshelf. All of these serve their own unique purpose. The folding bookshelf is perfect for families that are often on the move, as it is easily collapsible into a small size for easy transport. On the other hand, the wall mounted bookshelf is great for those who have space issues, as putting the bookshelf off the ground is a great way to free up some ground space.
Now, with the advent of flat TVs, you can use bookcases to surround your TV, pretty much like an entertainment center would. You could even rest the TV on the bookcase, but you would probably still need to bolt it to the wall for security.
