Before you start browsing through the catalogs, ask yourself in what room you will place your dream bookcase? Home and office spaces differ in style and, let’s face it, their styles often change. That is why it is a good idea to go for a universal look guaranteed by … wood! Yes! Wood is a material that will work in any arrangement, it is available in a variety of colors. This material, once associated only with homes, stormed into offices, lofts, and dominated Scandinavian, mid century and many other styles.


The second choice, which should be made at the beginning, concerns the bookcase design: a bookcase with drawers, cabinets, a bookcase with a cabinet, or maybe a minimalist openwork piece? It all depends whether you plan to use this piece of furniture only as a bookcase and newspaper rack, or you want it to also store documents, clothes and various trinkets.



Functional or aesthetic? Bookcase Scandinavian style


Since you already know where to place the bookcase, take a closer look at the selected space. In what style is it decorated? After all, adding a new piece of furniture to the existing arrangement cannot destroy it! Scandinavian design has moved into many Polish homes. The big advantage of a Scandinavian style bookcase is that it will perfectly match other arrangements. Universal, minimalistic design will also work well in rooms decorated in an extremely fashionable mid century style, but a suitably tuned bookcase will also fit completely different styles, even rustic! In other words, Scandinavian design bookcase is not a compromise – it combines aesthetics and functionality. When choosing your dream model, try to look at the room objectively, look for its more difficult points: bevels, alcoves, low ceiling – consider all this when choosing your bookcase.
