Bookcases are functional pieces of home or office furniture that can also contribute to the overall aesthetic of a room. When shopping for bookcases, there are a number of factors to consider.
First, consider the size of your book collection and any other items you want to store on the shelves. If you have especially tall books, you'll want to make sure that the individual shelves are sufficiently spaced to acommodate them.
Next, measure the width and length of your walls to determine how much space you have available so you can make sure that the bookcases you buy fit.
Another factor to consider is configuration. Corner bookshelves maximize space for books in a small room. Bookcase headboards are a great option if you like to read in bed at night. A leaning bookshelf, or ladder shelf bookcase, is tilted toward the wall, offering a unique way to display books and other items.
Bookcases come in a variety of materials. Solid wood bookcases are sturdy and durable but tend to be heavier than other bookcases. Laminate appears similar to wood but is lighter and tends to be less expensive. Plastic bookcases are another lightweight option, and they're great for kids' rooms, since they resist stains. Metal bookshelves are very sturdy and are a good choice for offices.
