More stylish styles include glass and metal constructions, possibly in an unusual shape such as a wave. This adds a sleek element, and curved shapes can add extra style to any room. Other options are coloured plastic stackable cubes which slot together in a variety of ways and can be filled up with books and other ornaments if you wish.
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.
Bookcases, by name, are meant to house books of all shapes and sizes. They come in all sorts of styles, including Barrister, Cubed, Corner and Kids size. They can be black or white or patterned or wood finished. They can be open-face or covered in glass. They are often the centerpiece of a living room, and as such, can act as a central place to exhibit not just books, but their own interesting design.
Always take a good look at the finishing touches like the hinges, door knob and shelf fixings as they should be just as good quality as the rest of the item. Use bookcases for all kinds of things in your home as they are practical, functional and look great when designed in solid timbers.
