Bookcases were once the place to keep your books, but now they stand for so much more with space for plants, ornaments and photo frames. They are also less about being functional, and more about adding a touch of style to your décor. Bookcases may come with just shelves so that you can see your beautiful library, or some come with additional cupboards for all-important hidden storage. This type of furniture can be chunky to be noticed, or offer a more slender appeal for smaller spaces such as wood and metal industrial pieces.
A bookcase can look fitting in a living room, office and a dining room and perhaps you’d even like to make the space a reading corner. We have plenty of occasional chairs which can be placed near your books, along with a soft rug and small table, you’ve got yourself a little nest for a reading session. Perhaps you’d like to get your little ones involved in reading so why not turn your lower shelves into the children’s book section and add a small accent chair for them. The options are endless!
Other types of furniture that could match or contrast with your new bookcase are sideboards and console tables for all of those things you need to keep out of the way of little fingers.
