We love bookcases. They’re obviously great for adding a touch of culture and class to our home, giving us the opportunity to proudly display our favourite books, photo frames, DVDs and ornaments. There are plenty of bookcase options for both traditional and modern homes but many people choose to create theirs under the staircase. If you’re thinking about doing this in your home, consider the following pieces of advice.
Choose where the bookcase will fit best
Decide where you need the bookcase to go. If it will fit into the staircase, measure the width, putting in mind the skirting boards and radiator pipes. Utilise as much of the space available at all times.
Get to know what you will be storing on the bookcase
You also have to consider what you will be storing on the bookcase so you that can decide what number of shelves you need as well as the height between the shelves. If it is specifically for books go for shelves that support many different sizes of books.
