Well bookworms and casual book lovers have had this age old question of ‘what kind of book shelf should I get?’ Worry not, for F31, the leading online furniture shop from Singapore is here! We provide all the styles, kinds, and functions that a bookshelf or a bookcase may present. But first, what are your priorities or the things you consider before buying a bookshelf?

 

1. Consider the density of your books. Is it mostly hardbound or paperback? Are you reading mostly thick books over thin books? Do you like your books stacked vertically or horizontally? All of these questions can be answered by you and your judgement should be apparent as some bookshelves are not made to handle thick hard bounds like encyclopedias and atlases.

2. Consider your space. Is it big enough to fit a decent sized horizontal bookshelf or maybe you need a high vertical bookshelf to maximize the free space above? Avoid cramming your books as this may lead to early de-leafing of books, or a crooked book spine. Make sure that your books have ample space to be pulled out and pushed in with little to no effort.

3. Consider your budget. Don’t go over budget! It may be tempting to shell out a couple more hundred dollars to get that expensive bookshelf that you like.

 

FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS

Which wood is best for a bookshelf?

For a bookshelf, an oak shelf made from Singapore should suffice your needs for a good couple of generations as this wood can withstand anything if well taken care of.

What is the best material for bookshelves?

The best material for a bookshelf is oak wood or teak wood. These woods are inexpensive but can last for a very long time.

What is the difference between a bookshelf and a bookcase?

The difference between a bookshelf and a bookcase is that a bookshelf is typically wall mounted and bolted to support books whilst a bookcase sits on the floor and can be moved or assembled.

What is a good shelf height?

A good bookshelf height may depend on the user’s height. Most bookshelves are a good foot taller as they bolt the shelves higher to use the negative space above.

How much weight can a bookshelf hold?

A well-bolted bookshelf can hold anywhere from 9 kilograms up to 20 kilograms. But to avoid accidents, you should not be overloading your shelves that much.
