A bookcase isn’t just a means to showcase your favourite reads, it’s also a place to reflect your unique sense of style. A bookcase is a versatile piece of furniture that adds personality to any room, serving as a canvas for your decorative flair, a handy space for books, and a hub for organising the things that mean the most to you, whether that’s family photos, ornaments or quirky collectibles that tell your story.
At Arighi Bianchi, we have a wide range of bookcases and bookcase shelving units on offer to complement the look and feel of your space. From oak bookcases to modern shelving units, we have the perfect piece for your home.
Bookcase shelving units offer a multitude of benefits that go beyond simple storage. Firstly, they help you embrace efficient organisation, allowing you to neatly arrange and categorise a variety of items, including your books, picture frames, and personal items.
Secondly, they help you to maximise space by turning vertical areas into extra storage spaces that also enhance the aesthetics of a room. This is why bookcases can be particularly useful in smaller spaces.
Lastly, bookcase shelving units offer easy accessibility, meaning you can effortlessly locate and retrieve your favourite reads or knick-knacks whenever you desire. This is what makes them an essential addition to any home or office setting.
There are a variety of styles of bookcases that provide different amounts of storage and compliment different home decor looks. The classic and timeless appeal of solid wood bookcases offers a warm and rustic charm, while metal and glass combinations exude a sleek and contemporary vibe. For those seeking a modern twist, ladder bookcases provide a stylish and space-saving solution, adding an element of visual interest to any room. Whichever type you choose, each brings its own unique character to elevate your space and beautifully showcase your treasures.
When you’re making the decision to buy a new bookcase, there are several factors to consider to ensure you make the perfect choice. First and foremost, measure the dimensions of the space where the bookcase will be placed to ensure a proper fit. You’ll want to allow plenty of space on either side of the bookcase to ensure it doesn’t make the room look smaller or cluttered.
Next, think about the intended purpose of the bookcase. Will it primarily be used to store your book collection, or do you want to showcase other items like decor or collectibles? This may impact the style of bookcase you choose as it will determine the shelving configuration and spacing.
Finally, consider the style and design that will best complement your existing interior decor. If you prefer a traditional look, you might want to consider an oak bookcase or an antique bookcase. If you prefer a contemporary style, explore modern or ladder bookcases. Keep in mind that you might want to match the style, colour and material to other furniture in the room, unless you prefer to embrace a more playful and eclectic look.
Styling a bookcase is a wonderful opportunity to infuse personality and create an eye-catching focal point in any room.
If you’re using your bookcase to store and display books, a fun way to modernise the look is to arrange your books in different ways, alternating between vertical and horizontal stacking. You can also intersperse decorative objects such as vases, sculptures or plants among the books to add depth and texture.
Consider incorporating personal mementos, photo frames or unique trinkets to make the display truly reflective of your individuality. Experiment with varying heights, colours and textures to achieve a balanced and visually pleasing composition.
Most importantly, don't forget to leave some empty space to allow the eye to rest and prevent overcrowding. If you want a more minimalist look, try increasing the amount of space. This is a great way to create a clean and calm aesthetic, letting the selected pieces breathe and shine on their own.
