Making kids get into a reading habit is a challenge nowadays. With different gadgets, games and television, books are something that is last reached for. But reading books is one habit that should definitely be inculcated at a young age. One simple way of doing it, is by displaying different attractive books in front of them so that they can reach out easily. One way to make this happen in an organized and nice manner is with a bookshelf. Arranging and displaying books on a nice sunset bookcase will not only make the kids bedroom look attractive and colorful, but will also give your child a reason to reach for the books. The best part of this bookshelf is the vibrant sunset colors it displays. The bookshelf has simple horizontal racks that allow free movement and can be easily adjusted according to the height of the books. The entire bookshelf is constructed in beech wood and is quite strong.
What is it?
If you are thinking what is so different about this bookshelf, then well it is the amount of breathing space it gives your room. This is a bookshelf that has no side panels, doesn’t touch the wall or the floor. So, you don’t lose any extra space in the already composite living areas that we have now days. With this bookshelf, the feeling of wide space is there, rather than a heavy piece of furniture blocking your space.
The bookshelf has some primary features that give it an attractive look. The first thing is the three standard vertical slot pieces and brackets of metal wall. To make it balanced out with the room, it is painted in white and matches your walls. Each rack is around 32 inches apart, giving you adequate space to store books of all sizes. The attachments to the shelf are very simple with easy butt joints with finishing nails and wood glue.
When the bookshelf is seen in totality, each shelf is screwed to a bracket from both the front and the back end. This adds to the stability of the book racks. To give additional support to the bottom shelf, there is also a right angle wall bracket that is fastened with a stud to the shelf. The best part of this bookshelf is that it’s extremely cost effective and since the shelving system is built out of metal, the overall cost comes down to a large extent.
When we in general talk about floating shelves then the first hesitation that we have in mind is about their strength. Most of these shelves are only suitable for displaying items with a maximum weight capacity of 10 pounds. So, it is obvious you can hardly put anything there and we also know that books are pretty heavy. But with this bookshelf the floaters are made of pine and red oak that gives it a very strong support and also can be adjusted and repositioned according to your liking.

The down side
