Perfect Bookshelf Options for Girls, Part 1

Posted on

Of course, you know that your daughter's bedroom will need a bed and someplace in which to store her sweet little clothing. But as adorable as all those onesies and rompers may be, you will soon be switching them out for different items: maybe dance attire or a soccer jersey, school uniforms or a hoodie that advertises for her favorite store or team or even - gulp - college of choice. But you know what she'll appreciate even once the tiny tutus and other remnants of her babyhood are long gone? Books.

A Collection that Will Last

From board books you read over and over to her more than once upon a time, and photo books of special moments she wouldn't remember otherwise, to the first picture books she remembers reading on her own, and classic chapter books you still love and will someday bequeath to her - these are things that she will cherish. Whether your little girl is still a newborn or is already in the school-age stage, it's neither too early nor too late to start curating a library she'll love. And then she'll need a place to store and showcase all the books.

So in celebration of the written word and the well-turned page, let's explore some of our favorite bookcases from Country Willow Kids. Varying in style from traditional to contemporary, with or without closed storage, you're sure to find one that will fit your home's design and the unique needs of your favorite little girl.

Bookcases with Dividers

One thing that can be very frustrating - especially for little hands - is when you take out one book, and the entire shelf-full tumbles over. One way to avoid this problem, while also helping keep books separated into specific categories, is to use cubby-style bookshelves or bookshelves with built-in dividers. One bedroom collection for girls incorporates this feature: the Devon Collection. This collection features a Modern appearance. The Devon Collection includes 2 bookcase styles: 1 with and 1 without a bottom drawer.

Both of these bookcase options incorporate the streamlined sophistication seen throughout the Devon Collection for girls. Completely hand-made in the USA by skilled artisans, this Shaker-inspired line boasts tapered legs, clean edges, and a clean, matte finish applied using a multi-step process for optimal durability. With 33 finish color options including both painted and stained finishes with 2-tone potential and your choice of hardware, the Devon Collection offers a uniquely custom style to blend into your room style.

The Devon Bookcase with Drawer incorporates a half-dozen cubbies positioned in 2 columns above the single spacious drawer. Like other tall pieces in this collection, it includes anti-tip hardware. The smooth-closing drawer glides along full-extension drawer glides and has built-in drawer stops for added safety.

The smaller Devon Collection Bookcase is nearly identical to its taller counterpart, except that it lacks closed storage. Either option can be personalized by use of an accent color for the inside back panel.
