If you are renting an apartment and can't nick the walls or hang objects, use two tall narrow bookcases on either side of the window to hang a curtain rod in between. In one "unit" you will have shelf space and a window covering! Have household goods that need a little hiding? Fill your shelves with pretty baskets, which can hold items like remote controls, cleats, plastic bags, and so on. And if you have items that you wish to show off, ditch the baskets and give your books a run for their money; pair them with your trophies, photo albums, framed art, or toy trains. Use the tops of arm-level shelves to place your keys, wallet, or purse when you first walk in the door. Having a space where you can always put down your personal belongings will help prevent misplaced items and hopefully keep you from having to crawl around the entryway in search of your keychain.
A wall of books can become an oversized Advent Calendar, filled with small gifts to be opened each day. Again, this is easy with a cube-type bookcase, as baskets filled with goodies can be placed in the cubes; another idea is to just wrap gifts and set them in the spaces, which is especially nice for homes with limited floor space.
When it comes to choosing the right type of bookcases, there are various considerations that need to be made. i.e. the kind of material to be used, the type of finish, the make or the style, the vertical height, the width, depth, etc. The most common end products available in the market today includes, light, medium, dark, or even black wood.
There are many types of bookcases, from traditional, to cheap, to stylish to modern and they have a variety of purposes. No longer are bookcases just confined to books, you can now get styles with DVD sections or CD section where a rack goes up the middle, with wider spaced shelves on either side.
