Floating bookcases are esthetically appealing and will be appreciated by anyone that enters your home. They are two different kinds of floating bookcases. One is hung up on the wall above the ground giving it the appearance that is floating. The second is designed so that once the books are stacked the shelving sort of disappears making the books appear to be floating in thin air. These are good for small spaces as they are less obvious and make the room seem larger.
Skateboard shelves can be hip with the kids of the house and help them put away their notebooks, while cases with integrated nooks for reading can give the kids an interesting place to do their homework. You can organize you books by color to create a rainbow affect, though the time it would take to do that could be outside of the realm of possibility. However, on a rainy day, instead of watching TV all afternoon, perhaps color-coding books could be the perfect project to brighten up your time inside. And while you are at it, take advantage of having empty shelves and (finally) dust and clean them.
Large holiday villages make an impressive display when staged on an upper shelf, within view from across the room or while sitting and watching TV. If your TV is part of a bookcase or entertainment unit, arrange your display around the TV, so that there is some holiday interest when the TV is not in use.
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.
