The wooden bookcase models offered by IKEA stand out with their functionality and durability while offering solutions for every taste and need. You can find the model that reflects your style among the rich options that complement the designs with bookcases and shelves and reflect IKEA quality. These models include design wonders that will also serve as a decorative element of your room.

With no compromise on robustness and durability, wooden bookcase models can be quality furniture that will be passed down from generation to generation.

When choosing a wooden bookcase, another important point you should pay attention to is the functionality of your bookcase. It should provide easy access to all the items you need in daily use and contribute to an organised storage space. For example, adjustable shelves allow you to personalise your bookcase for different sizes of books and objects. Bookcases designed with IKEA's innovative thinking offer user-friendly solutions in this sense. Models that integrate with additional desks or shelving units to organise your workspace can also be an example of functional design.

What wood are wooden bookcases made of?

With their high durability and aesthetic beauty, wooden bookcases are produced using different types of wood. Species such as Scandinavian pine, Acacia and Birch are often preferred in the production of wooden bookcase models that add warmth and elegance to your spaces. The unique texture and colour of each wood species used in the production of desks with bookcases give your bookcase a unique character, while its durability and load-bearing capacity are evaluated to meet different needs.

Prioritising quality and sustainability, IKEA prefers long-lasting and robust materials, especially for solid wood bookcases. Solid wood means monolithic wood sections obtained from a single tree, which makes the furniture much more durable. Natural wood bookcase options offer a simple elegance that has not been chemically treated, preserving the natural structure and beauty of the tree.

The wood used by IKEA in the production of wooden bookcases comes from sources with sustainable forest management certificates such as FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). This approach is an indicator of environmental awareness, as well as a statement that our production processes support the ecological balance and use resources responsibly.

Wooden bookcase decoration ideas

One of the ways to create an eye-catching and functional living space is to apply the right decoration ideas with your wooden bookcase preferences. While creating an impressive atmosphere in your home decoration, bookcases with glass doors and wooden bookcase models, which stand out with their organising features, can function to display not only your books but also your vases, photo frames and other decorative elements with their various designs and functionality.

Especially for small spaces, wooden bookcase wall-mounted options both save space and allow you to add an aesthetic touch to your walls. 3-fold bookcase models offer a rich appearance with their folded structure while sorting your books, magazines or albums, while their large internal volume allows you to comfortably organise your objects of different sizes.

Another decoration idea is to use a wooden book stand designed according to the characteristics of the space to create a thematic corner of your room. These stands are ideal for organising your favourite books and reading accessories in your reading corner or study. You can add a personal touch to the space by placing plants or small works of art on them.

Large and clamshell wooden bookshelves for living rooms offer ample storage space and help protect your books against dust while adding elegance with glass doors. Full-length wooden bookcases, on the other hand, can create an impressive focal point in your living room while offering the opportunity to create a magnificent backdrop for your library by completely covering your walls.

How to paint a wooden bookcase?

You can use special wood paints to give a different colour to the surface of bookcase models produced for customisation and personal touches or to refresh the existing surface. If you prefer water-based varnishes and paints in terms of ease of use and finish quality, you can give a new life to wooden bookcases without damaging their natural texture.

It is important to choose paints with low VOC content, considering environmentally friendly and your health. By increasing the quality of the interior, it can offer a healthy use for a long time. You can reach a result that appeals to your personal taste with paints offered in a wide range of colour palette as well as different finish options such as matt, glossy and semi-gloss.

Before painting, the surface of the wooden bookcase should be cleaned of stains, dirt or old paint residues. Wiping the surface with a damp cloth after smoothing it with a delicate sanding will ensure better adhesion of the paint. This preparation process is important for a professional result.

The choice of brush and roller you will use during painting is also important. Synthetic brushes are generally more suitable for water-based paints, while natural bristle brushes work better with oil-based paints. Using appropriate tools for even application prevents problems such as unwanted brush marks and dripping.

What should be considered when buying a wooden bookcase?

The type of material and workmanship are the most important factors when choosing a wooden bookcase to ensure high quality and aesthetic appearance. Solid wood bookcase options serve faithfully for many years with their durability and natural appearance, while natural wood bookcase models create a warm and comfortable atmosphere.

Another important point to be considered is the functionality of the bookcase. If you intend to use it to store various items, a model with multiple compartments and adjustable wooden bookcase shelf systems can better meet your needs. It is also important to check whether the legs of the bookcase you choose are sturdy and whether level adjustment is possible for a balanced and safe use.

In terms of design, wooden bookcase models have the capacity to adapt to different decoration styles. Regardless of whether you have a rustic, modern or minimalist home, you can have a wooden bookcase that will adapt to the environment. Choosing a bookcase that is compatible with the aesthetics and colour scheme of the area to be used is effective in bringing the whole room together and providing integrity.

If you have children or interact with the bookcase frequently, making sure that the corners are rounded and the surface is properly treated also reduces the risk of injury. For situations where the bookcase needs to be fixed, consider wall-mountability, especially wooden bookcases. In order to increase safety in the home, it is important to remember that the bookcase should also have the ability to be fixed to the wall against the risk of tipping over.

It is also necessary to pay attention to the ease of use of the bookcase levels in terms of comfort and accessibility. The height of the shelves of the wooden bookcase you will buy should be suitable for placing and removing books and other objects comfortably. Adjustable shelves according to the size of the books and objects to be placed will allow you to create a flexible usage area.

Consider a low and wide wooden bookcase to create efficient storage space in a small room. In large and spacious spaces, you can consider high and narrow models that will add height and stand like a work of art in the centre of the room.
