Buying a bookcase is often misunderstood process; it is not as easy as people think. Materials vary from; Oak, Pine, Antique Pine, Macha, Aluminium, Ash Veneer and a range of different plastics so finding the right one can be a hard choice. There is a huge variance in price also with the cheapest of bookcases selling at £50 price tag and the most expensive in the region of £15,000.
Bookcases can often have a positive effect on its surroundings. A good method of finding the right bookcase for you is to take a friend with you. Getting someone elses opinion outside the family will give you a good idea of what bookcase visitors will be most impressed with.
,If you have a large wall to fill with bookcases, its best to make sure they have flush sides so they can be lined up next to each other to fill the entire 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.
People who love to read tend to collect a large amount of books over the years. Bookcases are ideal for storing and displaying them. Without bookcases they end up filling our garages and attics with boxes.
Some bookcases have open shelves on top and doors on the bottom, which is very handy for storing games, art supplies, whatever you might need but want to keep out of sight below and display books on top.
