Ikea’s Billy bookcase gets the ultimate hack treatment, when four units are transformed into a dark, sophisticated wall-hung display/storage unit.
Bookcases come in a variety of styles and designs. From home improvement to modern and traditional designs, you are spoiled for choice. It is therefore crucial to know how to choose the right one for you. Most home improvement are very simple and the materials used are mostly recycled household items.
Modern bookcases are more versatile and available in different materials and designs. Traditional bookshelves are also a good choice. They are available in different sizes and are mainly made of wood.
When choosing the right bookshelf, make sure the material used to make the bookshelf is suitable for your home or office. Bookcases are available in wood, metal and hardwood, all of which differ in durability and price. Metal and hardwood are more durable, but more expensive than wood.
Also, consider whether you want an open bookshelf or a door-mounted one. You get some bookcases with glass doors and others with wooden doors. A key factor will be whether you want to display the stuff in your bookshelf or if you want to make it inaccessible to anyone.
Not to forget the size of the bookshelf. This depends on the availability of space in your home or office. You can measure the ideal space in which you want to place the bookshelf and get the bookshelf with the right dimensions for your room. Also, check if you want adjustable shelves to allow larger books to be placed in the bookshelf.
