How to Choose a Bookcase?

Jul. 12, 2021

Every house needs at least one bookcase to display everything from books to framed photos. If you're looking for the first bookcase in your home - or just need to add a new bookcase to your current collection - you should study this guide. After all, there are so many choices on the market that it may be difficult for you to choose the best option for your home. Here's what you need to know before you start browsing bookcases.


7 Things to Consider Before Buying a Bookcase

First, assess your needs. Determine if you have a lot of books to store, some reading material and some clever accessories for both, or you may just have some negative space on the wall that you want to fill. Once you've determined what you want, it's time to review the key points of buying a new multitasking bookcase.


1.) Size

Measure the space you are using. This will help reduce the size of the bookcase to focus on the many options available. If you choose a bookcase with fixed shelves, be sure to measure the shelf space. Also consider the headroom above the books.

2.) Materials

Regardless of the material, the bookcase will meet the problem you are trying to solve. However, materials do affect the longevity of a bookcase and how easy it is to move. Solid hardwood and metal are an investment piece that will last you longer. On the other hand, they are heavier and more cumbersome to move. Wood veneers and plywood are common materials used in bookcases and are excellent choices for rustic or more traditional decorative themes.

3.) Adjustable shelves

Customize your storage space and adjust it to different heights to suit your needs. Not all books and decorative items are created equal, so if you have different sizes and want the freedom to change items, adjustable shelves may be the best option for you.

4.) Open-back bookcases

Do you share a space or want to give the illusion of a larger room? Open bookcases work well as room dividers and can be accessed from the front and back. Open bookcases can be placed anywhere, not just against a wall or corner.

5.) Show or hide

Consider a bookcase with doors and/or drawers to hide any unwanted clutter or items you don't want on display. Bookcases with doors are also known as bookcases. They provide extra security, keep contents hidden and dust-free. Display bookcases or open bookcases are more common and can not only store your items but also display them. If you have your favorite memorabilia, pictures or artwork, then a display bookcase is for you.


6.) Finish and style

What looks good in one space may not fit in another, so consider all finish options (even bold colors, if you're so inclined). Be open to style as well. For example, if your style is more contemporary, you may be surprised to find that rustic, weathered bookcases are a perfect fit.
