A lovely furniture piece to add to your office, living room, or nursery is a shabby chic bookcase. Bookshelves in the shabby chic style can elevate your room and give you a place to store your favorite stories. Chic bookcases with cubby holes can hold floral décor items in every other cubby. While tall bookcases can hold twice as many books for those who own a lot of books.
Tall Shabby Chic Bookshelf
Kelly Clarkson Home
This chic bookcase is designed with an open style and has non-slip stoppers at the base to prevent scratching your floors. It features five shelves, four posts with finials, and ball feet.
Tall shabby chic bookcases make a more noticeable focal point in a room compared to a small or short one. When you use a tall and thin bookshelf that reaches your ceilings, it draws your eyes upwards and creates the illusion of taller ceilings. Because of their height, they hold more books and are great for people who read daily.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
