Present storage solutions wherever you need them with a wide selection of bookcases and shelving units available from west elm. From shelving units that attach to the wall to standalone bookcases and cabinets, there are a wealth of ideas at your disposal to store books, games, toys and other items you need close at hand. Perfect for a child or an adult bedroom, living space or hallway, bookcases and shelves are an exceptional way to use wall space as storage space.

Choose from a variety of in-wall shelving units to store items in your bedroom or living room. These modern and contemporary styles emit a mid-century feel, with classic styles that easily remind you of the 1950s and 1960s. Choose from angled wall shelving pieces that allow you to both display and store, or from shelving units with included storage space, allowing you the ability to store some things out of sight. These units fit snugly against the wall, allowing you extra floor space in your home.

Modular bookcases are another great way to store books, decorative items, toys and more. Choose a wider bookcase to complement larger spaces and to add more storage, or choose tall, thin bookcases that add a focal point to your hallway or entryway. These mid-century, modern bookcases look perfect tucked away in the corner or against a wall. Solid metal and wooden construction ensures you years of durability and use, while varying color choices and wood stains guarantee that these pieces will complement the existing decor and ensembles in your home. In most cases, you may choose from beige, acorn and white to place with existing furniture, and many other colors are available as well, depending on the unit. Tower and ladder shelving is another exceptional idea, especially when you’re short on both floor and wall space. These pieces stand tall, allowing you to place everything from decorative items to media to books.

Cabinets also work well as storage solutions in nearly any room of the home. Use them as cubbyholes to store books and games in your nursery or home office, or place cabinets in the living room to store media and other items you need close at hand. Wood display cabinets also have a special place in your dining area, allowing you to concurrently store and display your finest pieces, such as china or silver. An industrial modular cabinet resembles a credenza, allowing you enough space to use it as either a media center or buffet, as it is a versatile piece.
