Bookcases can be simply that, a place to hold books, or they can be a variation with a combination of shelves and drawers located at the base for additional storage. Some people don't even use for the purpose they were made for! Instead they show off their beauty by using them as display cases with vases, photos and other interesting items out on show.
There are lots of small battery operated lights on the market that would be excellent to use inside the shelves, placed on the "ceiling" of the shelf. Not every shelf would need illumination, but some strategically placed lights will make your display spectacular.
If you are renting an apartment and can't nick the walls or hang objects, use two tall narrow bookcases on either side of the window to hang a curtain rod in between. In one "unit" you will have shelf space and a window covering! Have household goods that need a little hiding? Fill your shelves with pretty baskets, which can hold items like remote controls, cleats, plastic bags, and so on. And if you have items that you wish to show off, ditch the baskets and give your books a run for their money; pair them with your trophies, photo albums, framed art, or toy trains. Use the tops of arm-level shelves to place your keys, wallet, or purse when you first walk in the door. Having a space where you can always put down your personal belongings will help prevent misplaced items and hopefully keep you from having to crawl around the entryway in search of your keychain.
A cube bookcase has simple straight square shelving. These are very popular since they are the basic style of bookcases. These bookcases have a hip modern look with clean, smooth lines. Cube bookcases are general modular meaning they can be stacked upward or outward and can even hang up on the wall. This style of bookcase is perfect for someone who has limited space and lots of books
