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.
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.
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.
