Having a bookcase full of books in your home office or a family room can be a distinguished look in your home, but a bookcase has more utility than just holding books. In fact, bookcases are a great home storage option for various items and can go in any room of your house.
One of the many uses of a bookcase is for holding decoration. Picture frames, trinkets, trophies, and more can be displayed on these shelves without cluttering tabletops and counters. Of course you can mix the decorative items with functional items, like storing books or binders.
Bookcases can also be used for small item storage. By getting baskets that fit well in the shelves, you can store small items in these baskets and place them on the shelves. This keeps your items together and organized but out of view (keeping a cluttered look at bay).
Bookcases are also a good storage for your media collection – DVDs, CDs, and more all stack nicely (and you can see everything you have at once) on a bookcase. This can help you keep your multimedia collection organized.
These storage solutions can also be used in your closet. You can display your shoes (making it easy to find what you need when you need it) on a bookcase in your closet or by your front door. You could also use it as a makeshift dresser inside your closet by folding your clothes and organizing them on the shelves.
Now that you’ve realized all the storage capabilities of your handy bookshelf, you’ll want to clear off those books and use it in another room. So stop by your self storage unit at LifeStorage so you can bring all those books in and explore the different ways to utilize your bookshelf in home organization.
