Where Shelves & Bookcases Work Best
Wall shelves are a key piece to helping rooms stay organized. That could be in the home office or common work space where books and magazines are lying around waiting to be organized. Not only does a bookshelf provide useful organization in the office, it also adds a contemporary element to the room. You may also want a bookshelf in the living room to put all of your unique decorative accessories on display for everyone to see. Kitchens enjoy wall shelving too, especially in more compact cooking spaces where you need to store tools, spices, condiments, etc. And consider shelving in your bedroom furniture mix to supplement your existing dresser, credenza or other storage furniture.
Shelving & Bookcases For Every Style
The unique benefit of a book or wall shelf is its ability to work its way in among other pieces of decor, be that lighting or furniture. Functional usefulness meets eye-catching character in the shelves from Kartell. Kartell's designs like the Shelfish Shelf add a bit of color to the room, while Ron Arad's Bookworm Shelf offers a truly unique piece of furniture. Look to Calligaris' shelves for fine Italian craftsmanship or consider Blu Dot for a contemporary shelf that works well almost anywhere. Finally, rustic homes benefit from any of the wood shelves and bookcases in the collection of Copeland Furniture.
How to Choose the Best Wall Shelving & Bookcases
Once you have decided whether you prefer a wall shelf or a standing book shelf, the next step is to determine the right size. Bookcases can be rather large in their stature and you can expect a wall-mounted shelf to protrude a bit from the wall. With that in mind, pull out the measuring tape to identify height, width and length, and decide exactly where you plan to place your shelving. Consider just how much shelving space you need for your books, magazines or decorative accents. And lastly, choose colors that are most representative of your home's existing decor, allowing a new shelf to seamlessly blend in.
