At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand bookcases in many different styles and woods. After doing some research on line we have discovered some useful tips on how to choose the best second hand mahogany bookcase.
A second hand mahogany bookcase can add a touch of elegance to the room in which it is placed. They are often tall and slim, without being over imposing. There are a couple of things to take into consideration when choosing which mahogany bookcase with which to furnish your house.
First, consider how many books you plan on putting on your bookcase. This will determine how many shelves your bookcase should have. A typical second hand mahogany bookcase has either three or five shelves, but there are a few models with more or less. On most models, the shelves can be adjusted to accommodate the height of the books. One foot (30.48 cm) of shelf space can accommodate approximately five average size books.
Many styles of second hand mahogany bookcases have a cupboard underneath for additional storage. These are available with a magnetic closure or a lock assembly for securing valuables. This cupboard may also be used for storing items such as photo albums, DVDs, CDs and books that wouldn’t otherwise fit on the shelves. Many of these bookcases have pull-out shelves for easier access to the CDs and DVDs.
For homes with a fireplace, the mantel and bookshelf combination makes use of the extra space surrounding the fireplace. This combination feature has a firebox surrounded by tall fluted columns and a book shelf on both sides. It also allows for a deep mantel in which to place collectibles, figurines or pictures. This type of second hand mahogany bookcase works great for people who have limited wall space available.
