Organizing Your Home And Office

Nov 27, 2007
Do you associate bookcases with bookworms or nerds because they are the only ones in the planet who own a lot of books and need one to store them on? Wrong. Bookcases can be for everyone.

Utilizing bookcases is a timeless and elegant way of not only storing books and other media but also helping in organizing a cluttered room in an instant. It is suitable for any area which needs additional storage and can also provide additional functions to the room. It may be used as a nightstand in a bedroom which is short of storage space. For an athlete, it would be the ideal furniture to display his achievements or memorabilia on. For a movie fanatic, it would be a cool way of storing and organizing your collection of DVDs, CDs, or your favorite video games. Add a bookcase to your office to hold your printer or scanner within reach of your desk. It could also hold important files and binders, too.

Now you may be considering on having to own one yourself. Choosing one could pose some concerns. Here are a few tips to help you on shopping for one:

Choose the ideal bookcase that would fit your needs. Determine what you intend to store in your bookcase to have an idea of how much shelf space you need.

Determine where you intend to keep the bookcase. Is it going to be in your bedroom, your living room or in your office? It is necessary to have this cleared out so that you can measure the room's floor space and somehow get the idea on how it is to be placed alongside any furniture in that room.

Lastly, conceptualize on the look you want to achieve on your bookcase. You can choose from an array of styles. You can have a bookcase with doors. This style is helpful in storing your books or other personal items for a longer time because they are enclosed in a protective barrier, guarding them from dust, humidity and direct light. If space is an issue in your home or office, you can make use of corner bookcases. Cubed bookcases provide you a more versatile way of storage because you can stack them, put them side by side or arrange them in whatever way you prefer. This type of bookcase can be made with drawers or doors. Barrister bookcases boast a very classic design. It complements both traditional and modern-day decors. A standard, yet special, feature for barrister bookcases is that it has swinging glass doors which allow you to store and display various mementos and special books in a safe way. Aside from protecting your items from dust and moisture, it also prevents them from being mishandled. Some barrister bookcases are made with intricate etchings or lovely designs on the glass which gives it a more appealing look. Finally, you could opt to choose cabinet bookcases. This bookcase style provides not only shelf space but cabinet space as well so you can put away items that you want to be kept out of sight or in a safe place.
