There's nothing quite like melting into your favorite chair with a book in your lap and a piping hot cup of coffee by your side. Books are awesome. They give us respite from our everyday lives and offer windows into new ways of thinking. The problem is, they're bulky and take up a bunch of space.

Bookshelves may have existed as long as books, and may even outlive their printed iterations. Many people are replacing books with electronics. At the same time, uses for bookshelves are becoming more diverse. For example, I keep my Simon and Garfunkel vinyl collection and record player in the music room. Their resting place? A distressed wood bookshelf. No books? No problem. In fact, practical bookshelf repurposing can shape and redirect the flow of a room. Here are some ideas for bookshelves to give your next design project a spark.

Use the bookshelf as a room divider.

A shelf is a perfect solution for dividing a room into two separate spaces. For our apartment-dwelling friends, space can be a premium. Utilizing space wisely can transform the feel of your home completely. Many apartments don't have a separate living and dining room. Divide the single, large space with something like the Shilf Shelf. You'll create two separate rooms without building walls.

Toss the filing drawers from your home office. They're ugly.

Home offices are a safe haven for bookshelves, and there's a perfect reason why. They look better than filing cabinets, and you can use them for more than stashing old papers and your coin collection. Don't fill your office with bland cabinets and filing drawers—replace them with the Albans Bookcase. You'll have a stylish piece of furniture with accessible organization. The best part is that your stamp collection won't hide behind cold steel. It'll be out in the open on the bookshelf for all to see.

They might make you read more.

Reading more is a common top-five New Year's resolution. Like a person going on a diet who buys a small pair of pants for inspiration, buying a new bookshelf may incite you to read more. An empty bookshelf impresses no one. But if you fill it with Foucault, Tolstoy, Nabokov, and Nietzsche, you may lose all your friends. The bad news? Your newfound interest in philosophy has wrecked your social life ... but it's opened up plenty of reading time. You'll fill up your new shelves in no time!

Buy your Smart Shelves here.

This is the only place in the world where you can buy Smart Shelves. Our original, patented design is American-made and assembles without tools. On top of that, they're totally customizable. Why buy any old dumb shelf when you can buy a Smart Shelf instead?

Smart Shelves are still a customer favorite. Easy to build, add to, and adjust on your own, these shelves are as flexible and adaptable as the home and the rooms that you live in. They can frame entertainment centers, fit beneath staircases, create walls and screens. They'll be as big and impressive – or as small and demure – as you like.

Printed books may be on the way out. But bookshelves will always be a great all-purpose piece of furniture. Use the shelf as a room divider—or to exhibit your taxidermied squirrels. No matter what, a good bookshelf will keep your stuff organized and neat.

Beautiful bookshelves and bookcases are a focal point in every well appointed home. Not only are they wonderful storage and display devices, but they can be works of art in and of themselves.
