Bookcases

Fancy a wall-to-wall library or do you like to mix your family photos with your books? Either way, our multi-tasking bookcases make great homes for everything you like having around you. Are you looking for a white or an oak bookcase? No matter what, we have styles and sizes for every taste.

An essential piece of furniture for every home, a bookcase or bookshelf has all sorts of uses. From the home library or office to your children’s bedroom, you can use it store important papers, folders and even toys. The options are endless.

Our selection of bookcases come in lots of different shapes and sizes. Choose between wide, high standing, narrow and low bookcases, in colours such as red, white, black, grey and oak.

Hide or display your belongings

Depending on what you want to store, consider whether you need a bookcase with doors and drawers or one with open shelves.

You can show off your books, photos of houseplants with an open solution, but what about the stuff you want to keep hidden? A cluttered children's room can quickly be tidied using a bookcase with doors. Or, if you have an open bookcase, you can keep things organised by adding storage boxes, baskets or other inserts.

With a display-and-storage solution you can enjoy the best of both worlds. You get to display your favourite belongings out in the open and hide any clutter away in the cabinet. If you want to protect the items you’ve got on display, choose glass doors for extra peace of mind. That way you can keep things like your favourite porcelain or glasses safe while they’re on show.

Bookcases for every inch of your home

For every room, there’s a bookcase, and for every bookcase there's a room. That’s why we offer a wide selection of models that can be placed anywhere in your home. Here are some tips on how to pick the shelving unit for you.

As well as being a decorative feature, a sideboard provides plenty of space to store things, plus an extra surface to display photos or ornaments. It can go in the hallway, under a window or next to your dining table for unloading dishes at mealtimes. Another option is a corner shelving unit. They’re ideal if you want to build a home library while making maximum use of the floor space.

Remember, a bookcase doesn’t always have to be placed along the wall of a room. It can also be placed down the middle of a room to separate it. This is a fast and easy way to create some space for a small home office or workspace.

Different walls require different fixing devices

Lots of our bookcases and shelves can be wall mounted. The type of fixing device you’ll need depends on the wall material, as different materials require different fixings. See our wall anchoring guide to learn more about how to safely fix bookcases to walls in your home.
