When deciding which bookcase or shelving unit is right for you, the very first thing to consider is the space you are working with. For smaller spaces we recommend you take a look at our leaning bookcases or ladder shelves as their footprint is minimal without compromising on function. If you’ve got a larger space however, or you’re looking for something more versatile, then modular storage is worth considering because you can flex the shelving unit to best work for your needs, even creating a room divider or whole storage wall if you wish.
It’s also worth thinking about what the shelves will be used for. Will they be used to show off your extensive book collection? Or perhaps you’d like the shelves to act as a gallery of your favourite photos and decorative accessories? This will help determine the size or shape that works for you.
Once you have a rough idea of the size and shape you are looking for, it’s time to move on to the fun part - choosing a piece that suits your individual taste and style. Factors to consider include the colour; you’ll want your new piece of furniture to complement the room’s décor so take a look around the space and try and envision which shade would work best with your current interiors. Neutral hues always work well as they will blend into their environment and can be accentuated with striking display pieces. You can’t go wrong with a sleek white or sophisticated black bookcase. Next, have a think about the material and finish you desire. With an abundance of options, from elegant wooden bookcases to modern metal shelving units, you’ll find styles to suit both classic and contemporary interiors.
