Its best to buy your bookcases with adjustable shelves so that you can modify them to fit your books and get maximum efficiency out of the space. Group your books by size, so that your small paperbacks will take up less height in the bookcase and your larger ones can be accommodated.
A bookcase is generally 1 deep with adjustable shelving, allowing books of any size to be on display. Shelf standards or drilled holes with clips are two ways to build adjustable shelving. The height of a bookcase is best at 7 otherwise you would need a ladder to access the top.
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.
You can buy bookcases that have open shelves. Again, we stress the benefit of adjustable shelves. This will allow you to store any size book or other item you chose to display. Most bookcases are 12 deep. A way to store larger items, such as albums, pictures, larger books, and knickknacks, is to look for bookcases that are up to 18 deep. You can also buy bookcases that are shallow-about 8 deep-that can be used for paperbacks exclusively or for CDs.
Whats in a bookcase? Well, obviously, books, but actually theres a lot more. Besides giving you a way to store and organize your reading material, owning an attractive high quality bookcase shows that you are well read and gives you an opportunity to display your interests. It also adds an important design element to your home.
Modern bookcases are wonderfully constructed and designed pieces of furniture that have in mind aesthetics and style as well as functionality. However, in spite of this, a modern bookshelf or bookcase is cheaper than ever, as vast improvements in the industry have allowed prices to be dropped dramatically.
