Buying Guide for Bookcases & Bookshelves

If you love books, then you'd agree that quality Bookcases and Bookshelves are a must in your home or office.

If you have piled your books on that coffee table and it's spilling over, then you'd know it's time to get a bookshelf. In fact, you don't have to wait till that time before you purchase a very good bookshelf for your space.

You don't always have to put only books on your Bookcases, you can also place items like art, decor items, etc. on your Bookshelves or bookcases

Before purchasing a bookcase or bookshelf, there are several things you need to consider such as:


1. Open or with Door: First, you need to decide if you will be using an open bookcase or bookshelf or one with door . This will mostly be decided by your preferences, for instance, with an opened bookcase or bookshelf, you will have the luxury of siting your books by their names, colours, and sizes, etc. In addition, opened Bookcases give the illusion of a larger room. You can also access open Bookcases from the front and back. On the other hand,  book cases with doors help to prevent dust and can help you conceal the items in the bookshelf. 

2. Material: The material of the furniture is an important aspect of purchasing a piece of furniture. There are different types of materials such as hardwood wood veneers, metal, maple, laminate wood, etc. 

It is advisable to invest in pieces that would last long. For instance, solid hardwood and metals last longer but tend to be heavy to move.

3. Size: No matter the type for furniture you're purchasing, you need to consider the size you have for such furniture or home decor before buying it. Bring out your tape, measure your space and get the measurements right. 

4. Built-in or Hanged: you also need to decide if you would be purchasing a shelf that would be hanged or if you'd go for the built-in one. Hanged Bookshelves can be easily moved, while built-in Bookshelves might not be easily moved. 

5. Style: You also need to consider your style and preferences. Do you prefer unusual and unique Bookcases or normal Bookcases?
