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.
Cube style shelving is an open style with no back to them which makes it ideal for a room divider, between the living and dining areas for example. If you prefer one where little fingers can't get into then glass doors are convenient as the items inside can still be viewed but not touched. Or for a completely practical item check out those cases that double as a TV stand, whereby the TV sits on the top and books or the DVD player, magazines or similar are stacked neatly below.
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.
