Bookcases are a staple furniture piece in every home – and you don’t have to own a lot of books to own one! They’re the perfect aid for styling your favourite items, whether it’s your collection of first editions of your favourite photographs. Coordinating your bookshelf with the rest of the furniture in your chosen room is key here – coordinating wood tones, colours and styles are crucial to creating your desired aesthetic.
You can find one-of-a-kind bookcases at VonHaus, in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials and looks. If you’re unsure about which style would best suit your space, take a read of our quick breakdown of the bookcases we sell.
If you don’t have a lot of space, you don’t need to compromise on having a bookshelf – you may just need to get creative with the books you can’t fit onto it! Smaller bookcases can look very chic when used to hold decorative objects like statues, coffee table books and photo frames, and you can also fit them into more spaces, like small nooks in your bedroom or kitchen, if you’re a cookbook fiend.
If you’re an avid reader but don’t necessarily like to have all your books on show, then you can always place your books in sideboard units or cupboards. However, book shelving units are perfect for showcasing your books and giving your guests an insight into your tastes! You can also organise your bookcases in different ways – by colour, by genre, alphabetically, by size – to create a pleasing visual effect too.
Large bookcases are perfect for larger spaces, especially rooms with high ceilings, or just for those who have a lot of books to store! They can be more of a statement in a room due to their stature, and you can use them as focal points in a room with a more minimalist décor style and colour palette.
By choosing a larger freestanding bookcase frame in a statement wood tone like dark wood, unusual colours like grey or even a unique style, you can create an area in your room that stands apart from the rest of your furniture. You can also balance the effect of a large bookcase with a statement chair or stylish lamp.
Our range of bookshelves has a great variety of styles and sizes, making it easy to pick one that suits your living room, bedroom, or hallway, whether your style is more cottage chic or modern industrial. Our bookcases also come at great prices and plenty of storage space.
