Of all the furniture in your home, bookshelves are perhaps the most versatile. Serving both form and function, the right bookshelf in your home can give you the storage space you need, but it can also reflect your style tastes. From modern to classic, simple to ornate, there are plenty of designs to choose from. Choose one that coordinates with the rest of your living room furniture, a small, compact one for your bedroom, or a unique ladder-style shelf to place in another prominent spot in your home.
Bookshelves are designed to save space and de-clutter a room, all while providing you a spot to store your books. But did you know that you can put so much more on them than just books? Use your shelf as a media case to store everything from your favorite novel to your music and DVD collections. That way, you can stay organized while you display your items. You can even use your bookshelf to display some of your decorative items, like vases and picture frames.
Although there are some standard sizes for basic bookshelves (from 32x31 inches for a 2-shelf case to 72x31 inches for a 5-shelf design), they also come in just about every size possible. In fact, bookshelves may be the one piece of furniture available in the largest variety of sizes and styles.
Since not everyone's home is designed the same, not everyone's bookshelf will be the same. Whether you need just a couple shelves to store a few books or a floor-to-ceiling media cabinet for all your Blu-ray movies, there is a bookshelf to fit your needs. You can even find corner shelves for those rooms without much floor or wall space. Just make sure you measure the space where you're planning on putting the shelf; then pay attention to the dimensions before you buy. This will save you the headache of trying to make an awkwardly sized shelf fit into your room.

  • I'm really like these, but ...

    I ordered two of these to go alongside my 3 regular leaning tower shelves (which I love and were a snap to put together). The first one of these was like the others - I put it together in 10 minutes flat and it was super easy and perfect. However, I had significant issues with the second one. The screws just would not screw into the nuts, and I ended up stripping a few of them in my efforts to get them in. Eventually, and with some knowledge of how to do this (basically forcing the screws to make their own grooves in the nut) I got them in, but it took a really long time and I was quite frustrated at the end. The other issue with these is that they really should include an L bracket to attach them to the wall for safety. They are not as sturdy as I would like and could be knocked or pulled over quite easily, especially if there are kids or animals around. I really love the way they look and they add so much interest to my otherwise blank canvas. Just beware if you order one that you co...

    I was a bit afraid to order this since no one else had done a review and I've gotten burned lately on a few things on overstock that I had to send back and I told myself that if this shelf didn't work out, I wouldn't shop here anymore.... The hassle of sending stuff back just isn't worth it. But this shelving unit is fabulous. Even better is that I got it on a flash deal which is what made me take the leap. It was out of my range before that. But at what I paid it was a great value and I am so glad I bought it. The directions could be a bit better but you can figure it out if I can :). I think it is overpriced at full price, but if it goes on sale, grab it! If they ever offer it again on a flash deal , I might order another.

    Fills the corner with some color nicely. Shelves are smaller than expected but hold a small picture frame or candle. Color matches other furniture. Happy with this purchase.

    The book/display shelf is very sturdy. The wood feels solid and will definitely hold items in placed. I purchased the espresso colored one and it was a very deep brown so it matched brown and black colors. It took about an hour and a half to fully construct one of these things, but i'd say half that time was vacuuming the styrofoam off the wood. It fit perfectly in the space I needed it to!
