Countries in Europe are now experiencing difficult times and citizens everywhere need to make the most of both their space and their money. For this very reason, a solid pine bookcase should be considered as a key component to any furniture set.
The first thing that needs to be considered when buying a bookcase is to make sure that it is a solid piece of furniture. This does not necessarily mean that it need be the best or most expensive type of wood, an unfinished pine bookcase can be great, just that it is solid through and through. A bookcase is going to have some fairly heavy weight on it, when all is said and done, and it needs to be able to hold up to that.
Tight budgets mean that pine is the perfect solution. A solid bookcase can be purchased for far less money in pine than a bookcase that is made of a better type of wood and which, nevertheless, has particleboard in the back. We have all seen the mess that is created when the staples come off the back of this cheap board and the magazines have slipped off onto the floor behind it. First and foremost if you are buying anything made from wood, make sure it is solid all the way through.
Bookcases also offer quite a bit of flexibility and that is why they are a perfect space saver.

By taking one of the shelves out of the bookcase, the TV can be positioned inside the case and it can serve as an entertainment center while the remaining shelves are still used for storage. It will literally take care of two needs at once.
Finally, the one use that we have not spoken about is the use that it is actually meant to be used for… and that is books. Homes that have a many children can be a bit disorganized, especially in the morning when it comes time to getting everyone out the door for school. Now imagine a nice solid pine bookcase that has a shelf assigned for each child. They can put their schoolbooks, book bag and mom can even have their lunch ready to go for them on their own shelves. It is organization at its finest.

They are by far the most affordable of all cuts of wood and they still look great. By purchasing a solid piece of furniture instead of something made from fabricated products, you are getting quality and a piece of furniture that will last a lifetime.
