Shelves and Bookcases for sale

If you’re furnishing a home office or library area within your home, a bookshelf can be the perfect addition to the space. Whether you’re looking for a large solid unit, or a lighter shelving unit that can be moved around, Coricraft offers a range of options suited to your needs.

They are generally used as an accent piece, you can be more adventurous than you could be with a couch - go for a bold design or an interesting fabric choice so it stands out in the room.

A well organised study or office area will generally include ample storage, great not only for managing your reading material, but also files, supplies, DVDs and other objects. A good bookshelf maximises vertical space, increasing the storage space in your home by offering multiple levels of storage.  

Choosing a style of bookshelf

A standard bookshelf is generally a freestanding unit with vertical shelves and a solid back. It’s designed to sit against the wall and carry standard sized books. Some feature doors or drawers, which offers a practical option for storing a range of objects on your shelves. You can use the drawers to store stationery, wrapping paper, ribbons and bows, as well as plugs and cords. These units are particularly useful for keeping clutter at bay and creating more organisation within your home.

Large units are great if you have the space for them. A full library bookcase with a ladder included is a great solution if you have a large space available for a library set-up. In fact, if you’re dedicating a room or area in your home to a library layout, you may even want to place two or three of these units next to each other to create a stately look.

Smaller units also look great and can be added to a smaller space for efficient storage. A leaning shelf that incorporates a desk space is a great idea for adding versatile storage to a room. These leaning desks are a great addition to a student’s room or an older child’s bedroom.

Natural wood is always a great option, darker woods give a more traditional and classic look, while lighter wood colours are more modern.

Units that include an open back can help to make the room look larger. This modern style of bookshelf can also be used as a room divider and can be accessed from either side.

Things to consider when buying a bookshelf

Make sure you look at the height, width and depth before you buy. A leaning bookshelf or shelving unit can have a greater depth than standard furniture. This means that the unit may protrude out into your room more than you are expecting. This could be an issue in a tight space like a small home office or child’s bedroom.

Consider functionality. Is the bookcase easy to move? Some may even include wheels on casters, so the unit is easy to move around. Can the shelf heights change, or are they fixed?

Think about the room in your home needing a bookcase. If you need one as part of your home office furniture, make sure the unit you choose is very practical with all the storage you need to store documents, files and other important things. If the unit will be used in a living room space, aesthetics may be a more important consideration, as the shelving unit will be used for books, vases, picture frames and other personal items. You want to be sure that these are all displayed beautifully.  

Arranging a bookshelf

Bookshelves are not just for books. If you’ve got a space in a living area or room where you want objects on display, you can turn it into a feature in the room. A combination of photo frames, vases and decorative objects can be added so that the display reflects your tastes. Objects like clocks, trophies, and treasures collected on holidays can add a personal touch.

Some people like to arrange books by height order or even into colours. This can be a fun look although it may be less practical when looking for a particular book. Serious book lovers may arrange their collection by author and into sections like non-fiction and fiction.

Adding storage boxes to a shelving unit can help you increase its functionality by adding additional storage to the space.
