Then there is the opportunity to make the bookshelves yourself. And even that is not all that difficult. One of the easiest ways that I know about is to use old bookshelves, cut off the top, attach a roof and add in some dividers for your own creation. About the hardest part of using used bookshelves is that some of the materials are very difficult to paint. So you may have to spend a little extra time sanding or priming the old shelves to make way for the new. You can also add trim and affix appliqués to finish off your project.
Ladder-like: The very contemporary looking ladder-like book racks give a modern appeal to the room. The frame is leaned against the wall, still balancing the books on straight horizontal planks. Corner: Placed in the corner of your room, these type of bookshelves space a good amount of floor space. Although they do not support a huge collection of books, instead they can be used elegantly to flaunt some limited editions and expensive miniatures.
Now move everything back on to the shelves. If your shelves vary in height survey your categories. Some books, like children's books, tend to be taller by nature. Return your bigger books to the shelves first as they will likely have fewer places they can fit well. You have two options for tall books if you do not have taller shelves. On a stand alone unit may be able to use the top of the shelving unit. Or place the books horizontal on your shelf, spine facing out so they can easily be read.
Sectional: You might not have an abundance of books, or you might not want some of your very favorite books to be on display, then you can opt for this modular bookshelf, wherein, the rack is divided into are various sections or compartments. Some compartments might be closed, and some might be open for a nominal display of books and display items.
If you feel that you are a totally cool person, and you pride yourself on having on the hippest furnishings in your happening pad, then you're going to want to exhibit your swag with an untraditional style of bookshelf, something very eclectic like a table top bookshelf in the shape of an animal or a wave. The bookshelf will emphasize your interest and your identity. The stylish shelf will also add a little more swag to your already happening pad.
