Creating A Plan For A Customcome in all types of styles, colors, materials, and sizes, with storage racks often being substituted when price is an issue. The biggest change between shelves and racks revolves around appearances. Shelves are generally considered furniture, which means they have a clean, finished appearance, while racks are almost purely functional, meaning they are intended to hold stuff, rather than display it attractively. This does not mean that racks cannot be used effectively, however, and a simple rack may offer a versatility that typical shelves lack.
Designer Tip: Lower or remove the top shelf on each book case and hang a framed print on the back of the book case... to fill in the back wall of the top shelves. Then place one or two small decorative objects on each shelf. Or remove one middle shelf (this is more ideal for narrow book cases) and display a tall object... like a vase... flower arrangement... scultpure.
Now look at the top shelf. Run all of your smaller sized books side by side across the top shelf. If you have multiple book cases side by side, run these books across all of them. The books should be all the same height if you can. And idealy they should run the complete width of the shelf. This will give a visual frame to the book shelf.
