However, those who had books to store kept them in small containers. The containers had no distinct style or design but, there were scholars who adapted to great looking collections when the market finally opened up. These small containers had transformed and they managed to inspire the first custom bookcases ever built. They first looked like cupboards but later evolved to bookcases. They were made out of a variety of materials which included pine, maple, oak and also cherry.
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.
If it is an empty office space where you put the bookcase, consider the details of the area where you will place it. Not all bookcases fit the same corner. Some are even specialized to fit into awkward areas. If the area requires a triangular shape piece, then seek for bookcases designed to fit the kind of area. Or, if the area is meant to be divided by a functional bookcase, however, that should not make the area limited, then seek for those see-through bookcases.
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.
