What to Consider When Purchasing a Bookcase

Before purchasing a piece of furniture for your home, there are several essential things to consider. Knowing more about what you're looking for before you even start browsing potential pieces can help make the purchasing process quicker and easier. Follow the guidelines below to help decide when buying the best bookcase for your home.

Construction Material

Bookcases of the past traditionally featured grand wood construction. However, these days, there are countless options on the market. While you can still find the classic wooden pieces you love, your space may call for something different.

Now, you can shop collections that include industrial-style mixed mediums, such as sleek, modern metal frames. Or, choose from minimalist bookcases with beautiful glass shelves.

The key to selecting the best bookcase construction material for the new addition to your home is to evaluate the existing furniture in the space. Finding materials that match the rest of the room creates a cohesive appearance, giving off the vibe it's simply meant to be.

Type of Bookcase

There are plenty of choices at Mor Furniture for Less, from complete media consoles to library walls and traditional standalone bookcases. Determining the type of bookcase you need will depend on several factors. These factors include how large a space you're looking to fill, how much storage you need, and whether you're looking for a vertical or horizontal arrangement.

Some bookcases allow room to hang a television, while others only provide functional and straightforward shelving. Library walls feature an "L-shape" design to provide storage and decor along two walls, while others serve more compact spaces. Knowing which type of bookcase you're looking for can help narrow down your options, making the shopping process more straightforward.

Bookcase Capacity and Features

The best bookcases are no longer simply bookcases. Now, many come loaded with extra features that complete modern homes. For example, choose a piece with 3-way touch, adjustable angle dimmable LED lights to spotlight your favorite items.

Other key features include ladders to reach even the highest shelves and cabinets to keep clutter and extra items out of sight while remaining close at hand. An entire library wall includes endless storage options to include your complete book collection, favorite mementos, photos, awards and diplomas, house plants, and more. Meanwhile, a smaller shelving unit allows you to store precisely the items you need without taking up unnecessary floor space.

It's a good idea to take an inventory of the items you're looking to keep on or in the bookcase to determine the appropriate capacity and features you'll need to look for while shopping. Additionally, complete measurements before looking at potential pieces to ensure a proper fit. While you don't want your home office or library to appear too crowded, you don't want your bookcase to look like it's floating on an island of its own, either.

Bookcase Style

Another important point to consider is the overall design style of the room in which you plan to place the bookcase. Is your style more formal and traditional, with intricate and ornate wood carvings? Or do you have an industrial-style space with bold metal hardware and natural wood grains?

You'll want your new bookcase to stick with the style of the room, including the color palette, texture, and materials. At Mor Furniture for Less, you'll find a style for every taste. From traditional to transitional and modern to contemporary, we have it all.
