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.
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.
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.
Carpenters, plastic manufacturers and metal workers take time and care in designing and making bookcases. Tony Hitchin a carpenter based in the UK said I enjoy making bookcases immensely, it so satisfying seeing the process from start to finish and bookcases give me the freedom to express my carpentry skills. Tony then went on to say Bookcases are an investment." Bookcases dont just hold books they do so much more, they can bring character to a room and really give a new element to your household. Take time and care when you next purchase a bookcase and most importantly enjoy the process.
Bookcases are now not only used to store your items, they can also define your space and decorate the room. Matching pieces can be added, such as desks, chairs, sofas, coffee tables, and beds. What was once a functional piece of furniture can now be a decorative addition to your home.
However, it is my own personal opinion that best all rounder type of bookshelf is the corner bookcase, which is perfect as it does not use much space at all, yet is able to hold hundreds and hundreds of books. Corner bookcases and bookshelves are very affordable, yet look professional and polished, and add a richness to the room that they are used in.If you have kids or pets, one of these is perfect, as they are almost impossible to knock over and damage.
