Like most other large pieces of furniture media bookshelves can not only add to the style of a room but also create a whole new dynamic. Due to this, extra care must be taken when purchasing one to house your media or book collection. In no other piece of function must the duel ideals of functionality also style be so adhered to. This list of bookcase styles should help you make a decision that is right for your home.
Barrister Bookcases : Barrister Bookcases are so named because they were typically used to hold heavy law books. They are commanding bookcases that have sliding doors with large deep shelves, meaning they will be most at home in large rooms. Whilst they are typically used to hold antique as well as large books they could also be used for large DVD plus Blu−ray boxsets. The fact that they have glass doors means that they offer extra protection to the media they are housing.
Leaning bookcases : Leaning bookcases are typically 'A' framed bookcases. They are typically backless, this means that the wall behind is on show. This lack of a back in−conjunction with unique shape adds a modern twist to the typical bookcase.
Modular Bookcases : Modular bookcases are easily adapted to suit any room no matter of shape,size or style although typically they suit modern rooms. They are an adaptation of characteristic bookshelves in which the usual horizontal slates of wood are replaced with interlocking also interwoven slates of wood glass or metal, making a modern cubist feel.
Shelf bookcases or Bookshelves : The classic style of bookcase in which shelves stretch to hold books, DVDs, pictures or whatever. Whilst the basic tenants of the furniture has been in use for hundreds of years this style is suitable for any type of interior due to the eclectic designs, sizes with materials available.
Headboard Bookcases : As the name implies these are simply headboards with bookcases built into them. These are very convenient when wanting to peruse in bed. As you would imagine they are less adaptable then the other styles plus would look very out of place outside a bedroom.
Built−in Bookcases : These are bookcases that are 'built in' to the room. They could be wall attached bookshelves or corner bookshelves that sit under stairs. The major downside to built in bookcases is that they obviously can not be moved. This can become an issue when remodelling your home or moving house. The advantage of a built−in bookcase is that it can often take the strain of huge weights, making it the media bookshelves of choice for those with a very large DVD, Blu−ray or book collection.
As the son of a carpenter as well as an avid collector of DVDs Blu−rays, CDs with books my interest in media bookshelves is obvious. I have created my website to help others find the perfect bookcases, bookshelves in−conjunction with media storage furniture for them.
