If you have a huge bookshelf or a custom built bookshelf, you might consider using a tall bookcase. You can put your small books on the top shelf and you will not be able to reach to look at your other books. Many people like this design and are very happy with it.
There are some disadvantages of using tall bookcases though. If you don’t know how to build one of these you will have to pay someone to do it for you. The problem is that you won’t know what you are getting into if you aren’t properly prepared.
Another disadvantage is the possibility of the tall bookcase being damaged by the weather. Many bookshelf coatings are water proof and will protect the books, but the possibility exists that the books may be dropped on the floor and scratch the floor beneath them. You need to take this into consideration when you are shopping for a tall bookcase.
You also need to think about the cost of the bookshelf coatings. Some people pay hundreds of dollars for a floor coating that will not make a difference in the damage done to the bookshelves. Other people opt for coating the bookshelf itself. This could be a much better choice because the bookshelves are more protected, but it still can add up to quite a bit of money over time.
Some people like their books to lie flat on the shelves, but other people like to read their books as they are. There are also those who find that their books lay flat when they are on the floor. A bookcase with slats on it helps to keep the books off the floor. You can also get bookcases with horizontal slats so that you can raise the books up off the floor.
Finally, you will need to decide whether you are going to purchase a tall bookcase yourself or if you are going to rent one. This is an important decision and needs to be discussed with a professional. It will be best to rent a tall bookcase instead of trying to build one on your own.
When you are building a bookcase yourself, it is easy enough to build a bookcase out of a few old bookshelves. These can be found at thrift stores and many people are able to use these as kits to make their own bookcases. It is recommended that you purchase a bookcase kit because you will need more than just a few bookshelves to make the bookcase. Also, you need to think about what you will be using the bookcase for.
The bookcase you choose will be the focal point of your home. The place where you store your books, newspapers, children’s books, and the like. It is best to plan your bookshelves well in advance to avoid any surprises.
