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.
A good way to figure out how large a bookcase you need is to measure the linear footage of the books you own and then calculate how much footage is available on the bookcase you are looking at. Take into consideration how you are going to adjust the shelves for the various sizes of your books. If you have lots of small paperbacks youll have more running feet of space for them if you double up the shelves. In that case, you might want to see if you can order an additional shelf or two.
Bookcases are practical and decorative at the same time. They can be added to any home much easier than most cabinetry. Bookcases range from a single freestanding unit to a full library in a room of its own. They can also be built into other cabinets such as entertainment centers and kitchen islands.
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.
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.
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.
