Bookshelf & Bookcase Finishes & Materials

Once you’ve finally settled on a bookcase type and makeup that works best for you, it’s time to pick a stylish finish and material. We advise that you first pick out the feature, finish, or material that you feel most strongly about, quickly giving you the best available options. Bookcases come in a select number of materials, with a frame that's somewhat or entirely composed of wood, but with complementary materials like glass or metal. In terms of color, your options largely come down to wooden-finished

Bookshelf & Bookcase Types

If you thought bookshelves only consisted of the tried and true standard bookcases you’ve seen time and time again (i.e. evenly spaced with a closed back frame), prepare to be amazed. Bookcases come in all manners of creative and functional forms:

Open backed with shelves of wood or glass, an Etagere is the embodiment of a functional yet beautiful furniture piece. Ample shelving lets you display cherished household items, while the open back and more stylized frame help complement the bookcase with the wall color and décor surrounding it.

Ladder & Leaning Bookcases: Rather than standing straight up, ladder and leaning bookshelves are designed to literally lean against the wall or the case’s vertical backing. Ladder bookcases sometimes feature shelves that narrow in size from the ground up and can include a supplementary cabinet or drawers.

Cube Bookcases: Cube bookcases feature both vertical and horizontal divisions that divide shelves up into smaller, cubby-like storage spaces. Cube bookcases can be perfect display pieces for spotlighting personal mementos and keepsakes.

Corner Bookcases: The name practically says it all, corner bookshelves are built at a right angle and are generally small bookcases that you can slot right into just about any room in your home. If you live in an already crowded apartment or have extremely limited space and need a narrow bookcase, you’ll want to start off your search with corner units.
