How to Choose the Best Second Hand Pine Bookcase

At Home from Home we stock a large range of second hand pine bookcases. After doing some online research we have discovered some tips on how to choose the best second hand pine bookcase.

Choosing a second hand pine bookcase for your home can be a great way to add a space-saving, budget-friendly storage piece. Pine is a very economical, yet attractive wood available unfinished or in light or dark finishes. With a wide range of bookcases available in both high and low styles, selecting the right second hand pine bookcase for your home can be fast and easy.

First, decide on the approximate height of the second hand pine bookcase you’d like for your particular room. A low pine bookcase can be the ideal choice for the space under a window such as in a bedroom. A high bookcase could be angled in a corner or placed as a focal point in a room. A focal point draws the eye.

Many tall second hand pine bookcases feature top shelves with closed shelving on the bottom part of the unit. This type of pine bookcase allows you to store less attractive household supplies in the lower section and display collectibles or other items on the upper shelves. The low type of second hand pine bookcase can also double as a nightstand beside a bed or as storage for books and other items in smaller rooms such as a den.

Light pine furniture has a more informal look than dark varieties. If you prefer darker woods for an elegant look, but more expensive hardwoods such as cherry are out of your budget, a dark second hand pine bookcase could be a good choice. If instead you’re looking for a rustic looking bookcase,knotty pine could suit your style. The round, dark knots throughout the grain of knotty pine give it a very natural, informal appearance that fits in well with country, cottage and other types of rustic decor.

If you’re looking for several second hand pine bookcases to be placed together to create a library wall or walls, pine is probably the best cost-effective choice. You should also watch the styling when looking for a pine bookcase for your home. While many pine bookcases have clean, straight lines, some feature scalloped, decorative edges.
