The key to selecting the right bookcase for the space you are to fill with it is to have a clear view of the existing theme and furniture. If you are not good at generating wonderful color and style combination, take a picture of your space and let the sales person help you decide about it. Before you hit the furniture store to buy a bookcase, be sure to have taken down notes of the dimensions of the materials you are to fill it with, especially the measurements (width and height) of the largest book or any material.
More and more you will find bookcases used as open display cabinets. People display their cherished items, family photos and even their I-pods or music systems on them. Therefore, you can begin to see just how versatile a bookcase could be. The beauty of them is they can be placed in any room or any spare corner. Wooden bookcases could be at home in a kitchen with cookery books and cooking paraphernalia and it could be equally at home in your hallway. There really are no hard and fast rules about where a bookcase should be placed.
An enclosed bookcase is ideal if you plan to display expensive books, decorative items, or collection pieces because there is no chance of harm to the encased objects. A bookcase containing doors is also quite beneficial if you are tired of dusting surfaces in your home. The shelves stay dust-free longer as long as the doors are kept closed unless you are accessing something. A tall open bookcase can also be used to house decorative baskets where you can store magazines, childrens toys, or other small objects that would otherwise pile up or appear as clutter in the room.
Regardless of its type of wood, a bookcase should be well-built and sturdy. The color of a bookcase is the next feature to consider. Many people like to choose bookcases that coordinate with the rest of the furnishings in a room. For instance, if a person has a collection of furniture in light-colored oak, he or she may opt for a bookcase made with the same material. There are bookcases that feature colors such as brown, black, espresso, cream, and even weathered white.
