    most commonly available are 11.5", but if your building them it is what ever you want given what your going to put on them.
  • janet55
    Thanks. I think 11.5" will be perfect.

                1. Bookshelves. By using tall, skinny bookshelves that go to the ceiling, you draw the eye upward and create the illusion of height.

                3. Upholstery Purchasing a quality sofa or other piece of upholstered furniture that stands up to the demands of your lifestyle is always a good idea. Cotton blends that have a high percentage of polyester provide optimal stain resistance and long-term wear. An alternative: Shop local secondhand stores for pieces with solid wood construction and have them reupholstered in an upholstery-grade fabric of your choice. This can give you a high-quality item for the cost of a lower-quality new piece.

                Lining a living room in bookshelves adds a cozy library feel. Start looking at typical office furniture with new eyes and continue that mindframe from room to room. It will help you switch things up around your house up and keep things fresh. Best of all, it will save you money.

                The built-in bookshelves and rolling library ladder are both custom creations forged out of steel. The coffee table is made out of steel as well, and is another custom design from Redmond Aldrich. Vintage chairs with polished wood backs add a natural element to the space, and a canary yellow couch provides soft, warm color.Couch: Christian Liaigre
