Cheap bookshelves are not exactly to find, just about every brand you can think of will have their own version, but which should you go for?
John Lewis can be a bit hit and miss when it comes to their own ranges but they seem to have come up trumps with this ‘Basic’ bookcase collection.
There are 4 sizes to choose from, each with height adjustable shelves and an oak effect melamine finish. They are made from fibreboard btw, not MDF as indicated on the website, and are, of course, self-assembly.
The reviews are pretty good though and, with prices ranging from £35 to £59, about as a good value as you are likely to find anywhere else. The range also includes a matching desk and filing cabinet if you are after a cheap home office set up?
The Basics Dexter Low Wide Bookcase – with 2 height adjustable shelves. W80 x D29 x H90 cm. Priced £45
The Basics Dexter Tall Wide Bookcase – with 4 shelves, 3 of which are height adjustable. W80 x D29 x H176 cm. Priced £59
The Basics Dexter Tall Narrow Bookcase – again, with 4 shelves, 3 of which are height adjustable. W40 x D29 x H176 cm. Priced £45
The Basics range is exclusive to John Lewis and available in stores or online at johnlewis.com
