MJ Design - Custom Bookshelves
Worms in the furniture aren’t always a bad thing—especially when you’re the bookworm digging around in your choice, custom-made bookshelf. If you’re a lit geek, then you probably have stacks of books begging for a home. Maybe you’ve collected a few cheap options for shelving over the years. After all, does it really matter what the bookshelf looks like when it’s going to be drowning in your favorite volumes? Yes, because it’s not just about aesthetics. It’s also about durability.
Books are heavy. Ask any mover what the bane of his existence is, and he’ll likely say boxes of books. They’re cumbersome, they’re surprisingly dense and some of them are worth thousands. If you’re a book lover, you’ve probably started collecting some costly volumes. Sticking them on a subpar bookshelf is asking for trouble. Instead, let MJ Design Custom Cabinets create the perfect personalized bookshelf for you that’s worthy of your books and a few other collectables.

A customized bookshelf is handcrafted to perfectly fit in any part of the home—and to fit any type of book. If you’re an avid children’s picture book collector, you’re going to need dimensions that aren’t common with most bookshelves. And if you have a love for vintage books, they can get lost and look lonely in today’s bigger shelves. At MJ Design Custom Cabinets, your taste, style, preferences and growing library are all taken into account.
Plus, only the best materials are used to withstand years of holding heavy books. You’d be surprised how many soft woods that are cut into thin pieces just aren’t up for the challenge. You might expect any shelf to be able to stand up to your reference book collection (but you’ll find out the truth in the hardest way possible). Depending on the size and weight of your collection, some materials are a good fit while others are weaklings.
A Bookworm’s Dream Come True
Most book lovers are a bit like addicts and their indulgence will continue to be sated throughout the years. Your library is just going to get bigger. The shelving that worked okay a few years ago just isn’t adequate anymore. The professionals at MJ Design Custom Cabinets have a knack for keeping expansions in mind and even matching customized bookshelves to your current shelving options.
Showcasing your collection is an equally important aspect for “bookies”, especially once you start putting together collections that are close to the heart. Perhaps you want to highlight your Stephen King first editions or that first printing of “Catcher in the Rye” you scored at a garage sale. With the right craftsmanship, displays are made easy—and they always look good.
