A built in bookcase looks so similar to a shelving that is built to the wall or it may resemble a custom built unit that comes with doors. You can have a huge storage space that can go up to the ceiling for the bookcase. Having built in bookcases in your home is like investing in the future and it is a representative of the great value you hold for books. There are several vital factors that you need to put into consideration before you buy or build a bookcase.
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.
You can even choose a bookcase that combines both open and enclosed shelving. The items that need the most protection can be placed in shelves that are covered by glass or solid wood doors. This will prevent you from having to worry about a stray ball hitting your treasured items or items from toppling over if the bookcase should accidentally be run into by a child, adult, or even a large pet.
Both the china cabinet and curio cabinet still have their place but the wooden bookcases are such beautiful items that they are popular today. Of course, you can keep books on your bookcase, whether it is treasured signed first editions or books you need for work or university. A bookcase can sit happily alongside your dining table and sideboard and it can sit alongside your hall console table.
