Bookcases are a great place to display some of your favorite Holiday decorations. Remove some of the books or objects that you keep in the space year-round. Put some of the books in boxes and store them for a month where you keep the holiday decorations.
Apart from the standard and decorative bookcases, you also find cube units, corner units, or the barrister. In fact, in terms of available finishes, you could only be limited by your imagination.
You need to consider size, space and colour as the main components as your bookcase. Always take measurements of a room if you are going furniture shopping, and try and identify a space where you can place the bookcase and know it will fit.
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.
