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.
Make sure that what you buy complements the rest of your furniture or your house will look a bit mismatched. You will know what is right for you, just remember to think about those three key components.
Buy furniture off the shelf or have it custom made to fit any sized nook or cranny. It's not necessary to have them lining the walls as if in a library as this will only make a room looked cramped, but a case or two strategically placed will give a distinctive look and can be a great feature in any room.
