Classic wood library bookcases are beautiful and come in a selection of finishes and heights, while steel models offer unmatched strength and a wide choice of colors. You can coordinate shelving with other library furniture or use it to bring in some fresh hues and styles. Whether you're looking for elegant, casual, colorful or formal bookcases, you'll find what you're looking for at Hertz Furniture.
Steel bookshelves are super strong and sturdy. They are available in a vibrant array of colors from Best Metal Cabinets. Colored shelving can be used to differentiate between various types of books so it is easier for patrons to find what they are looking for. Locating the history section from afar is much simpler when you know that is is housed in the yellow shelves. Without color coding, patrons will have to be within reading distance in order to determine if they have located the correct shelves. A variety of eye-catching hues will also make any space more inviting.
Nothing beats the classic elegance of natural wood tones. For a more professional and sophisticated look, solid wood bookcases will get the job done right. The visual appeal of natural tones is matched only by the incredible strength of solid wood. If you love wood hues, but don’t have room in your budget for real solid wood, you can achieve a similar visual effect with laminates or wood veneers.
When you are outfitting a library for an office or professional institution, consider bookshelves from some of our stately office furniture collections. Elegant edge detailing and rich classy hues makes these shelves perfect for a more serious environment. They will also look great in an upscale school library.
Choosing between vibrant colors and natural tones can be quite a challenge. Each option offers distinctly appealing elements that greatly enhance a study space. With Educational Edge bookshelves, you can have the best of both worlds. These attractive units juxtapose the natural beauty of wood tone with brightly-colored detailing.
Adams traditional library walls from Norsons are a perfect combination of elegance and toughness. Attractive molding wraps around their top edges to create a built-in look when units are combined in a row. This custom appeal will lend a high-class look to any study area. We also have radius-edge shelving units which create a softer feel than harsh straight lines.
The style of a bookcase can impact the feel of a room, but the configuration and design are important to consider as well. Mobile bookcases can be quite convenient when many volumes need to be moved around at once. Bringing an entire class into a library to work at the same time can cause a disruption to anyone else who is studying in the room. When a whole class is researching a topic together, mobile bookcases can be used to bring the library into the classroom so students will feel free to have open discussions and consultations without disrupting other people.
If you have a fully-stocked book collection and you know what you will be using shelving for, it is important to make sure that the weight capacity of the units you are purchasing matches the books you need to house. Additionally, shelf depth should be considered as well. For large volumes such as reference books, large-print books and encyclopedias, extra-deep shelves might be required so the books won’t stick out.
Bookcases also come in many different heights. Lower bookshelves are great for children’s libraries. Floor-to-ceiling models maximize storage space so you can fit as many books as possible in the room you have. Whichever heights you choose, there is also the matter of single- or double-faced shelving to be considered. Single-faced shelves go perfectly against walls, and if they have finished backs, they can even be used as room dividers. Double-faced units are the ideal selection for creating long rows of books.
Rather than ordering many individual models, or even many of the same model, Russwood Library Furniture brings you the convenient option of modular shelving. This great solution creates a classy custom built-in look while saving space and money. Modular shelving can be used to achieve a perfect fit that will look great in every space.
With Hertz Furniture’s huge selection of library bookshelves, narrowing down the choices can be quite challenging. With all of the materials, colors, styles and heights to choose from, anyone will have a number of excellent options. If you need help figuring out what the ideal selection is or exactly how many units you need for your space, contact the Hertz Design Center for free project-planning advice.
