While light wood bookcases complement a range of color schemes, natural pine and taupe pieces are especially suited to a few different styles. For example, a light wood bookcase in a driftwood finish coordinates with both farmhouse and coastal decor. On the other hand, a bookshelf unit with glass sides and weathered oak shelves is perfect for a minimalist home office.
Need some display or storage space in a smaller room? Opt for corner bookcases in light wood tones. These pieces fit snugly into place and offer 3, 4, 5, 6 or more shelves to hold novels as well as knickknacks. You might also consider a slim, ladder-style light wood bookcase or room divider, rather than a solid bookshelf to avoid a setup that feels cramped or cluttered.
