Every home library needs a good bookshelf. To make the most of your space, install built-in shelves or a bookcase against awkward walls that you have not figured out how to decorate yet. Popular areas include next to the fireplace, in the corner of a room, or behind a desk. Whether freestanding, mounted to the wall, or built into the wall, there are a variety of bookcases to suit the layout of your home.
