Yolette. Bookcase. September 28th , 2017.
One thing is certain, wooden bookcases are something that all of us could own and find a use for. The size range and the types of wood is personal choice but there is a huge choice out there. You can go for the darkest wood hues to the lightest or even painted finishes. There is something glorious looking about large natural wooden bookcases catching the sunlight with your treasures on display. Therefore, even if you have never owned a book or picked one up to read, you could still have a place for a bookcase in your home.
Bookcases created with light materials are easy to move, also those with rollers for easy push and pull. However, not everyone prefers mobile bookcases, and not every situation demands it. You could be one of those who prefer a stationary type. If this is the case, be sure that you carefully thought about it as stationary types of bookcases usually have to be fixed on your wall and require some professional installers, which would mean extra cost for you.
The key to selecting the right bookcase for the space you are to fill with it is to have a clear view of the existing theme and furniture. If you are not good at generating wonderful color and style combination, take a picture of your space and let the sales person help you decide about it. Before you hit the furniture store to buy a bookcase, be sure to have taken down notes of the dimensions of the materials you are to fill it with, especially the measurements (width and height) of the largest book or any material.
More and more you will find bookcases used as open display cabinets. People display their cherished items, family photos and even their I-pods or music systems on them. Therefore, you can begin to see just how versatile a bookcase could be. The beauty of them is they can be placed in any room or any spare corner. Wooden bookcases could be at home in a kitchen with cookery books and cooking paraphernalia and it could be equally at home in your hallway. There really are no hard and fast rules about where a bookcase should be placed.
However, those who had books to store kept them in small containers. The containers had no distinct style or design but, there were scholars who adapted to great looking collections when the market finally opened up. These small containers had transformed and they managed to inspire the first custom bookcases ever built. They first looked like cupboards but later evolved to bookcases. They were made out of a variety of materials which included pine, maple, oak and also cherry.
