What types of bookshelves are available?

Surprisingly, there are a wide variety of bookcases to choose from. Below are a few that might fit your needs:

Ladder or leaning: These bookcases lean against the wall and generally feature shelves that diminish in depth from bottom to top. This type of shelving saves space in the room and doesn’t require anything being affixed to the wall.
Corner: Like the name suggests, corner bookshelves are built to fit into the corners of the room. These are great space savers and work well in offices, small rooms and apartments.
Tower: Tower bookshelves are vertical and significantly taller than they are wide. They come in varying shelf sizes and may or may not have wall panels on the sides. These vertical bookcases visually draw your eyes upward and can be a great balance to a room with largely horizontal lines.
Wall-mounted: If you have bare walls or minimal floor space, wall-mounted bookshelves are a great solution for sneaking in shelving. They can be as simple as only the shelves themselves, or a more complex piece with a cabinet, top and side panels.

What style bookcase should I look for?

Seek out a style that complements the overall traditional theme of your décor. Wood units will be more traditional, though adding metal elements can quickly turn it industrial or contemporary. All steel or metal pieces give off a sleek, trendy feel, while cubby bookshelves veer toward modern. Glass can be both traditional and contemporary, depending on the overall design, while plastic represents a minimalistic feel. If you want something eclectic and unique, find something that's vintage, or revamp an old furniture piece with a new color or hardware.
