It is important that a bookcase is practical for your room. If you have a lot of books then go for a floor to ceiling one, if only a few then you can get one half the size which you can rest things on top of. This is good if you have a rather small room as you can place a television or stereo set on top, as well as decorative ornaments. If in a lounge or dining room why not go for a semi bookcase or bureau style which has cupboards for the bottom half and shelves on the top. This has extra storage potential for all of your belongings.
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.
You might think a bookcase is a bookcase and what is the big deal? It's not until you start to search for one for your home you'll soon realize there are actually many various kinds available. They come in all kinds of solid woods from oak, pine and beech still in their natural state, or waxed or varnished in a darker hue, to painted white or something brighter for a real funky style. Tall, short, wide and thin, with or without drawers and cupboards, the range is huge and it won't take long to find a solution to your storage and display needs.
