Calling all book buffs and storage sensationalists! In an age where electronic tablets and Kindles are giving published books the redundancy treatment, we at Wishtank are protesting against it! Your favourite written stories should never get knocked off their shelves! No siree – quite the contrary… we say, “Rack ’em, pack ’em and stack ’em!”. There’s something still decidedly ‘novel’ about having books around the home… it really cranks ups the cosy factor, not to mention it gives you a fabulous excuse to build or buy shelving in its many forms on offer.
In fact, you don’t even have to be an intellectual bookworm to appreciate a well-constructed shelf area. Even if the only thing you ever read are wine labels (let’s be friends?), you’re still in our good books! As far as we’re concerned, every home-dweller should find a place for open shelving – they add style, personality and warmth; they often only require a small area of space – probably unused anyway and, done properly, it can really enhance the look and feel of the room.
