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.
Some bookcases have open shelves on top and doors on the bottom, which is very handy for storing games, art supplies, whatever you might need but want to keep out of sight below and display books on top.
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.
Books stored in boxes can get damaged over time reducing their value. So keep this in mind when deciding to add bookcases to your home. If you have boxes of books in the attic or garage chances are they are damaged already. So you should look in to purchasing some bookcases and get those books out in the open so everyone can enjoy them.
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.
People who love to read tend to collect a large amount of books over the years. Bookcases are ideal for storing and displaying them. Without bookcases they end up filling our garages and attics with boxes.
