There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing extra bookshelves for your home, such as the size and type of shelving that will best suit your needs. You can find many different styles and sizes of bookshelves online or at your local home improvement store.

Here’s an awesome idea if you want more shelving in your small space: build a bookshelf-in-a-door. This is a great way to add extra storage without taking up valuable floor space. Plus, it’s a fun conversation piece that will impress your guests.

This is also a great DIY bookshelf-in-a-door project for bringing life to a part of your house that is often overlooked. By incorporating an old door into a bookshelf, you can add a touch of personality and charm to an otherwise forgotten space. Not to mention, it’s a great way to display your favourite books!

For instance, if your storage room is located at the end of the hallway, you can give that door an additional purpose by using it as decorative shelving. This can add a touch of style to your home while also providing you with extra storage space. To do this, simply add some shelves to the door and then use them to store items that you want to keep out of the way.

Installing wireless LED bookcase lighting is a great way to brighten up any dull area in your home. Not only will it make the area look more inviting, but it will also help you see better when you’re reading or working in that space.

Wireless LED bookcase lighting is easy to install and doesn’t require any special tools or knowledge. All you need is a screwdriver and a few minutes of your time. Simply screw the light into your bookshelf-in-a-door and plug it into a power outlet. You can find these lights at most home improvement stores or online.
