Built-in bookcases add so much to a room. And with all our decluttering this month a built-in bookcase is just the spot for those treasures you’ve found.
Which is your favorite color? Red, White or Blue …
My mother-in-law, always added built in bookcases to her homes wherever she moved too. She added them in small office spaces using vertical space up the wall and around windows, she created focal points in her great room living room and family room. I loved seeing all her treasures and photo’s among the books of her travels and her most prized photo albums of her family.
A built-in bookcase can add a much needed architectural detail to a room, creating a richness and sense of history. It’s a way to create storage where there little available, it’s a place to display your most prized treasures to share and simply a great storage solution.
If you don’t want to or can’t commit to a built-in bookcase think about using the many pre-made bookcases available from the box stores like Ikea. You can add molding to these bookcases to make them seem like they are a built-in, Ikea even sells doors you can add to keep messy things out of sight.
