Though sometimes relegated to book storage and nothing more, bookcases can actually work as central design features for any room in your home, and display a variety of prized possessions. Modern updates leave you with tons of options to choose from, ranging from sleek and module to a traditional open-faced wood-finish. Choose according to your style and don't be afraid to take advantage of every shelf, nook, and cranny.
Oak is a good deal as it's a timber of particularly high quality and makes beautiful looking furniture. Solid oak should be used throughout the piece, even in the drawer bases and cabinet backs; these are the places where some manufactures might substitute veneers in an attempt to keep costs down. Quality pieces will facilitate dovetailed joints in the drawers, and when finished in a tough, hard-wearing lacquer such as a resilient satin for instance, this is a pretty tough piece of furniture sure to last generations.
Cube style shelving is an open style with no back to them which makes it ideal for a room divider, between the living and dining areas for example. If you prefer one where little fingers can't get into then glass doors are convenient as the items inside can still be viewed but not touched. Or for a completely practical item check out those cases that double as a TV stand, whereby the TV sits on the top and books or the DVD player, magazines or similar are stacked neatly below.
