Shelf depth? - The bookshelves frame the window in a lovely way. What depth are the shelves? I'd love to see the other side of the window, too! Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to All Ages Spaces
This room takes the bookshelf-storage concept to the next level, lining the walls with shelving. This is a great way to turn clutter into decor. Also, I absolutely love the idea of Eames molded chairs as kids' seating - they're colorful and comfortable and just the right size.
Becky Harris added this to How to Stage Shelves
The plasma television and a window peek out from these shelves. Perfect.
A library ladder brings high shelves within your reach. Again, not the most child-proof move, but lovely for those who don't have to worry about little climbers.
Becky Harris added this to Clever Ways to Maximize Space
Don't waste the upper space when you have high ceilings. A library ladder allows access to shelves that kiss the ceiling.
Becky Harris added this to Libraries for Everyone
Add a ladder if necessary. Oh, and yes, you may combine your television room with your library if you please. Technically, it's all media, right?
These shelves take advantage of the ceiling height. The ladder allows access to the highest shelves.
The chair is strong enough to stand alone...
Jonathan Baker added this to Masculine Upgrade: Ladders in the Home
Many times ladders are used as a bit of a focal point, but I like how seamlessly this ladder blends into this entertainment wall. By riding flush against the wall (versus coming out at an angle), the thin ladder lines play nicely with the slickness of the television, the window and elongated piece above the fireplace.
Becky Harris added this to Create a Place for Books
Technology, an open floor plan, the family room and the library peacefully coexist in this home. There's no law that says you cannot nestle your television among the books! Next: More photos of bookshelves
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 5 Ways to Decorate Around a Flat-Screen TV
4: Fill in the space. Books, accessories and pictures around this TV make the screen practically invisible. Tip: If you don't have built-in shelving to fill in with books, just pack your wall with art and photography.
Scheer & Co. added this to How to Hide Those Messy Wires
Everyone seems to want to mount their flat screen TV on a wall these days, and it's easier than you think — even if you're a renter and you're not supposed to penetrate walls. A small hole can be bored in drywall and wires can be brought up to the desired height without much fuss. Of course, it helps to have built-in bookcases like these, which provide a little more room for pulling wires around.
