Until the arrival of the printing press most of the
country didn't have the means to buy their own literature -
instead members of the church and the wealthy kept
handwritten manuscripts in single containers or in
cupboards. However, once texts became cheaper and literacy
grew to a larger scale, so the bookcase became a necessary
feature of every home. With the mass printing press, so
books changed and the title was noted along the spine and
the bookcase was designed so that books could be stacked
side by side with the spines facing outwards - allowing for
easier selection. In recent times the bookcase's usage has
gone beyond its name, storing all manner of items. But
whatever they're used for, the bookcase is still an integral
feature part of every home.
Bookcases don't just have to be for studies or book stuffed
living rooms. They can be used in a multitude of ways and
therefore make a practical addition to almost any room. Adept at
storing dvd's, cd's, magazines and letters they're perfect for
clearing away clutter, but without that typical issue of losing
that important document in some over stuffed drawer! They also
give you the opportunity to display things such as photographs,
plants and family ornaments - anything you would like on show to
brighten up the room.
Bookcases come in a variety of sizes and styles, so be
sure to pick the right one. Firstly it's important to work
out what exactly you want it to hold. Collate all the
possessions you intend to store in your new bookcase - often
there's a lot more than you first thought! You can then get
an idea of how exactly how big or small it needs to be. Also
make sure that the shelves will fit these particular items
For example: if you have some tall hard backed books then
ensure that the shelves are high enough to fit them
comfortably - some bookcases do have the option of
adjustable shelves so you can find your own perfect heights.
Finally measure out the area you want your bookcase to go.
Once you have the exact space requirements you can decide
whether your bookcase needs to be wide and deep or tall and
thin. Whatever you need there'll almost certainly be
bookcase to suit you.
We offer a variety of different style
bookcases in pine and oak, as well as painted options.
First make sure that whatever wood and style you like
doesn't clash with any existing furniture and decor -
bookcases will take up a large portion of your room, so you
don't want it to look out of place. If you're putting a new
room together that includes a bookcase, it's worth thinking
about what wood you prefer. Pine would give your room a
light and clean feel, while oak is rich, deep and warm. This
decision is certainly a matter of personal taste, but a
bookcase will make a practical and stylish addition no
matter what style.
