Bookcases, Shelving and Storage Furniture
Theres no doubting that bookcases are extremely practical pieces of furniture. In addition to displaying books and some of your most prized possessions, they can also be used to divide rooms and add character to empty spaces such as hallways and dining rooms.
With a range of different styles and finishes to choose from youre sure to find the right bookcase, shelving and storage furniture for your home. Depending on the volume of books and other items you wish to display, you may prefer something small and functional such as unit or bracket shelving or something larger like a bookcase or tower. Display cabinets and drawer units let you display your items whilst boxes and cases keep your items out of the way.
Youll be able to find whatever height and width you desire, or can create your own by spacing shelves to your desired measurements. Choose from different styles and periods including antique, Art Deco, contemporary, French country, farmhouse and Victorian shelving units.
Whatever design style youre looking for brands such as Woltu, John Premier and Mercers Furniture offer various units suited to a range of different styles of interior design.
If youre confident with DIY you can opt for a flat pack solution. For something that comes ready made, some wall mounted bookcases, shelves and stackable styles require no assembly.
You can also select shelving thats specifically designed for the room its going to go in, with kitchen and bathroom units having different finishes that will protect the materials from water and heat damage.
The material you select for your shelving can make a big difference to the aesthetics of the room. Heavy duty woods such as oak, ash, birch, beech, mahogany and maple will make a strong statement, while lighter woods such as bamboo and pine will achieve an altogether different effect. If you opt for pine, wood panelling or MDF, you can always update it with a lick of paint in years to come.
