1 Lining a wall or franking a fireplace
2 Surrounding a door or a window
3 Beneath a stairwell

Design and Style
You can also find bookcases which come with beautifully detailed carvings which add a more elegant and sophisticated touch to your bookcase. If you have a living room which is furnished with antiques or is decorated in that style, then you should look for a bookcase which is made of treated wood which gives it an antique look, even though it may be brand new. You can also buy a bookcase painted a specific colour which goes well with the rest of your home.

If you are looking for a bookcase for your home, an oak bookcase is generally the preferred choice because of its durability and strength. Perhaps consider getting an oak computer desk as well to match your bookcase.
