I would love to get myself a shabby chick bookcase, but are there different types to choose from?
Bookcases, both the shabby chic ones and other, come in several types. The most popular styles are standard, Étagere, ladder and leaning, Scaffold, corner, cube and built-in bookcases. Each style does not only look a bit different but also utilises the space in a different manner.
How high is a standard bookcase?
The height depends on the style and type of your bookcase, but most of them range from three to eight feet tall. Keep in mind that when considering which bookcase to buy, height is both about the aesthetic and practical aspect. While tall bookcases are generally more formal, smaller ones can be more practical, as you can use the top surface.
But how to choose the width?
Consider the width of your bookcase in relation to the height. For example, if you want to purchase a tall bookcase, it might be a good idea to get yourself a couple narrow units, instead of a one wide unit – this gives you flexibility. In the case of a shorter bookcase, it’s better if it’s wide, as this makes it more noticeable and substantial.
What’s the usual depth of a bookcase?
Standard shelves are at least 12 inches deep. This provides enough storage space. However, some bookcases can be narrower – ladder or leaning types are a good example. That’s why it’s important to plan what your bookcase will hold pre-purchase.
Anything else to know about the size of my bookcase?
Remember to make precise measurements of the space between shelves in correlation to the items you plan on keeping there – for example, the height of your books.
Is there any extra functionality I should pay attention to when choosing a bookcase?
There are three options which may be good to consider – adjustable-height shelves, room dividing bookcases and wheels. While wheels and the option to adjust the height of the shelves are pretty straightforward, the option of using a bookcase as a room divider is both original and practical!
What are the most popular materials from which bookcases are crafted?
Bookcases are usually crafted from wood, particle board or metal. The choice mostly boils down to the aesthetics, but naturally, a metal bookcase will be the most durable. Still, it’s really rare for a bookcase to break under the weight.
