Go for a colour that compliments the rest of your furniture. Solid wood or a wood finish is the best choice and looks more traditional. You can get some good ones made with a wood effect that are fairly cheap but look the real deal. Try and invest in real wood if you can as it is long lasting, however, you do not need to if you cannot afford it.
Books first appeared in the world as scrolls. These scrolls were usually inscribed by hand and so their production was quite costly. Religious institutions, libraries and ancient universities prized the books highly. These necessitated the need for specialized containers or boxes which were easily accessible for easy referencing. Initially the shelved containers were much deeper and separated into many compartments for easier access. The shelving was usually hidden away in closets that blended with the home decor or in private study rooms.
A ladder bookcase generally leans back against the wall and has a tapered design that resembles a ladder. The shelving starts out wide at the bottom then tapers out giving it a stylish appeal.
