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.
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.
Very much like the earliest bookcases that adorned the elegant libraries of Europe in the middle ages, solid woods are still used on most high quality bookcases. To this day, solid oak is the material of choice in that it affords durability, style, and beauty. It is used in many styles that are popular today, including Mission, Traditional, Colonial, Shabby Chic, and Contemporary.
