If you like the look of library-like shelves but don’t want to splurge on a custom design, use bookcases to create the appearance of floor-to-ceiling built-ins. In this living room, four tall bookcases were stacked and secured to the wall with anchors. The best place to find these types of bookshelves is IKEA.

Consider Size and Weight. Measure the tallest books you want to display and space shelves accordingly. Keep tall bookcases steady and standing by arranging your heaviest volumes on the lowest shelves. Move in streamlined tower-style bookcases that provide generous storage without taking up much floor space.

SHARING: I do not claim all posts to be my own…I post the sites they are from if the source is known.

JOKE OF THE DAY: I desperately want to go camping this summer. Preferably in a hotel…with a pool…and a spa.
