How to personalise and style a bookcase for your home
With the IKEA range of bookcases – along with some well-chosen additions – you can easily create a library that’s an impressive feature of your room décor, as well as a reliable home for your much-loved books. Read on for a few ideas.
Different ways to arrange your beloved books
With a BILLY bookcase, you set the distance between the shelves, so you can easily arrange your books by height. For ease of reference, you might want to order alphabetically (author or title) or group by topic. Or, for a visual statement, you could shelve books by the colour of cover. Whatever works for you.
Integrated lighting for greater illumination
Naturally, you want to see which book you’re picking off the shelf. So integrated bookcase lights serve a practical purpose. More than that, they can help you to create a warm and cosy mood in the room. You can position them on the top of your bookcase, under the shelves – or both. Energy-efficient LED bookcase lights are long-lasting and quick to install.
A BILLY bookcase with doors to other worlds
Want to keep the dust off your books or simply create a different look? You can personalise your BILLY bookcase with doors that fit perfectly. A range of finishes are available in glass, solid panel or a panel/glass combination. So you can create a BILLY bookcase for almost any style of room.
