Bookshelves and bookcases are highly sought after pieces of furniture. This seems to be the case as people are continuing to becoming more literate, and are starting to own more books than ever before, and there is thus a need to be able to store their books safely and neatly. There are a massive range of bookcases and bookshelves available to purchase, which themselves make beautiful pieces that add life to the room that they are used in.
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.
This is a great alternative, but remember that they do take up a little more space because you need the circumference of the door opening to be kept clear. If that is a problem, you might want to go with sliding glass doors on a bookcase. That should give you adjustable glass shelves and will take up less space from the rest of the room.
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.
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.
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.
