Acrylic Bookshelf

Buy the best acrylic bookshelf selected and recommended by interior designers. By Chloe Hughes.

An acrylic bookshelf can be both a stylish and clever addition to your home, your living room in particular. First of all, it’ll immediately showcase your creativity and decorative flair. In fact, unlike traditional wooden shelves, acrylic options are not that common. From a strategic standpoint, it’ll help you make your living room look airier and more spacious thanks to its clear design.

Description

This set consists of three acrylic shelves in the same size, just over 17” each. Their simple clean lines are perfect to add (or reinforce) a modern feel to your interiors. Because they’re only 6.4” deep, we mainly recommend them for collections of small paperbacks.

Designer Advice

Placing your bookshelves one on top of the other inspires a sense of verticality. It’s also the wisest option if you haven’t got a wide wall section. Fancy getting creative? You could break their symmetry by placing the middle one slightly to the side. Alternatively, create an ascending feel by placing each shelf slightly higher up and to the right compared to the one below.

26” high and 24” long, this fairly compact cart consists of two shelves. The top one, in particular, is perfect to store a few books thanks to its sloping design. It comes with caster wheels, meaning it’ll be a breeze to move it around.

Designer Advice

These types of carts with acrylic shelves are especially indicated for kids’ rooms. You can use them to keep their favorite books and toys in one place, and the bottom shelf will give you more flexibility to store taller items. Plus, if you’re worried about their room looking too cluttered, remember that the clear acrylic design will help create an illusion of space

This clear acrylic bookshelf is available in two finishes: chrome or gold. So, it’s extremely likely that you’ll get to match your existing accents! Just over 70” tall, it consists of five shelves and a handy top surface.

Designer Advice

If you’re planning on growing your collection of books, it might be worth investing in an acrylic bookshelf rather than a couple of wall shelves. Worried it’ll look a bit bare while you get there? Don’t be! You can opt for a conscious minimalist feel or alternate some sections with books and some with decorative items.

Description

38” high, this item features two 16” long acrylic shelves kept together by metal cables. This gives you more flexibility: as well as a traditional walls, you can hang them up in front of a window or even a door. 

Designer Advice

If choosing a small set of acrylic bookshelves, place your items strategically to maintain a balanced decorative feel as well as meeting your storage needs. For instance, you could fill the top left section with books, then have some ornamental pieces on its right, and do the opposite on the bottom shelf.

Description

Not every single acrylic book shelf involves a clear design! If you’d like to make a bolder statement in your home, consider this set of two 15” pieces. Its rainbow finish changes color depending on the light and your viewing angle.

Designer Advice

These types of acrylic bookshelves can help you inspire a nostalgic retro feel in your home. However, to avoid a busy effect or a clashing of colors, we mainly recommend them in rooms that already involve one of their hues (in this case, pink and light blue). That way, your new shelves will even help you reinforce your palette instead of introducing yet another color.
