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.
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.
Now, with the advent of flat TVs, you can use bookcases to surround your TV, pretty much like an entertainment center would. You could even rest the TV on the bookcase, but you would probably still need to bolt it to the wall for security.
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.
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.
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.
