What is the best height for bookcases

Our bookcases vary in height, from sideboards with handy shelving to full ceiling-height options. There's no right answer for how tall your shelving should be - it really depends on the proportions of your room. If you've got high ceilings, you can afford to go big. However, a tall bookcase in a small room with low ceilings can make the space feel crowded. For smaller rooms, consider a low bookcase or a slim ladder-style design.

What is the best depth for built in bookcases

While the best height for a bookcase will depend on the dimensions of your space, the depth of a bookcase is fairly standard. On average, books are up to 10 inches tall and 7 inches wide, so you'll want to make sure that your shelf space is slightly taller and deeper than this. If you are making a custom-built bookcase, it's a good idea to take a look at your book collection before you start installing. Children's stories and reference books are often larger than standard, so you'll want to make sure that your shelving can accommodate them.
