Types of Bookcases and Shelves

There are numerous types of bookcases and shelves available. The most common include styles include free-standing and floating ones. The difference between these two is that free-standing bookcases and shelves are situated on the floor and rise against the wall. Some are secured with brackets and may include both enclosed and open shelving. Floating bookcases and shelves do not have visible brackets, nor do they rest on the ground. These shelves and bookcases appear to float on the wall. Some bookcases and shelves include unique features such as glass doors and lighting. You’ll also find modular styles where you can create your unique configuration.

Sizing for Bookcases and Shelves

As with any other type of furniture, you'll want to measure your space before ordering any bookcase or shelves to ensure that they are the right fit. The three measurements to take are height, width, and depth. The easiest way to do this is to 1) determine where you want to position your new furniture, 2) use a measuring tape to get your dimensions and mark the height and width with blue painter tape, and 3) take a step back to envision the bookcase or shelf in that spot.

If you're happy with the placement and it looks like the bookcases and shelves will fit nicely, then you can simply select the right-sized pieces that suit your taste and budget.
