It is estimated that every five seconds, one BILLY bookcase is sold somewhere in the world. Pretty impressive considering we launched BILLY in 1979. It’s the booklovers choice that never goes out of style.

Just rightI got two of these for two corner units in my library. They work great and are very secure and easy to install. I would make two little changes though. First, I would list on the web site the distance that you have to give from the wall to the next bookcase (23 inches). This is mentioned on the product sheet in the store but I like to do a lot of my planning at home online. Second, I would have changed the screws for the top into flat head screws to present a lower profile. My ceiling is not quite as tall as is allowed by the extensions so I have cut the extensions down and in order to let them lie as flat as possible on the shelves I've had to find some spare screws that work better.
BILLY corner fittings make it easy to build storage in corners and keep the bookcases in place. https://www.ikea.com/us/en/images/products/billy-corner-hardware__56866_PE162285_S4.JPGBILLY Corner hardware, galvanizedhttps://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40104109/401.041.09IKEA$5.00/ 2 pack
