DEFINITIONS: Starting with dictionary definitions, and then expanding them. We ended up with a pretty concise definition of what we do at The Little Bookcase Company. Except we prefer not to ‘shelve’ in the sense of ‘putting aside!’ BOOKCASE ~ ‘A cabinet or case fitted or filled with shelves for books.’ Can also used for storage, and displaying art and ornaments. SHELF ~ ‘A board fitted in a cupboard, on a wall, &c., for laying things on.’ A plank of wood attached to the wall (or in a cupboard) SHELVE, SHELVES ~ ‘To furnish with shelves : to place on a shelf : to put aside.’ A cabinet or box of shelves, attached to a wall, a rack of shelves. SHELVING ~ ‘Provision of, or material for, shelves.’ Fitted shelving in an alcove or along an entire wall, or walls, e.g. a library of shelving CUPBOARD ~ ‘Originally a medieval board (on trestles) where the cups and ‘plate’ (all types of metal eating and drinking vessels) were displayed. FITTED OR FREE-STANDING? Fitted bookshelves and cupboards are, by definition, closely fitted and fixed to the walls, floor and ceiling in your home. This can be the best solution for you if space is restricted, or you have a specific alcove or bay you want to fill completely with storage of some sort. Fitted furniture also gives a seamless, smooth look to the interior design of your room. This kind of cabinet furniture works well in cottages and is a neat and efficient use of the available space. Unfitted furniture, on the other hand, being free- standing, can be moved around in the future (including when you move house!) This kind of furniture generally looks more traditional and elegant. Free-standing bookcases, and cupboards can also be made to reflect the period of your home; Georgian or Victorian, for example. The choice is yours; whatever you want, THE little BOOKCASE Company can probably make it for you.
