I've built a lot of IKEA furniture in my time. More than I'd like to have built, and although I've never run a marathon (bless those who have), I sort of approach the task like running one. From purchasing it at the store to figuring out how to interpret the instructions, and then finally seeing it come together at the end—it's a journey. A long and hard one at that. But there is one IKEA item that is foolproof. Truly, even if you hate building furniture you can get on board with this. I give you, the classic Billy Bookcase.

BILLY Bookcase, white


The $50 shelf is so popular, that IKEA says one is sold somewhere in the world every five seconds. Perhaps, IKEA, if all of your furniture was this easy to build you'd sell even more items every five seconds. With only 12 steps (13 if you're mounting it to your wall), it's much less intimidating and much more intuitive than other IKEA items. It took me about 1 hour to build, and when I was done, I had something that looked a lot more expensive than $50.

If I built this and didn't hate everything, than you surely can to!

What is so great about Ikea Billy bookcase?

We have had Billy bookcases with a TON of books on them and do not have quality issues, believe it or not. We've had them for years.

-Customizable in many ways (width, height, doors)
-Slim profile/baseboard cutout helps with the "built-in" feel
-Continuously available, in case needs change
-Easy on the wallet

-Limited color choices
-Very, very basic look when standing alone (look better in a wall-to-wall setup)
-Not great for oversized books as they are not deep (which is also a pro)

I am eventually going to replace my Billy bookcases. In our last home we had a wall full of them, and it worked. In this house, it's only possible to put one on each side of a window. I keep thinking of ways to spruce them up, but by the time I add trim, wallpaper, paint, whatever . . .they are going to be more expensive than they are worth in time and money.

I wish there were more bookcase options out there w/my limited budget. There were a few Target bookcases I liked, but they were always either too short or too wide. And darn, why are only barrister bookcases available as antiques/vintage bookcases? I know, I know-- fewer books and people had built-ins. My house is from the 20s. Where are my built-ins???

White ikea shelf bookcase 5

The 9 Best Bookcases of 2021

Final Verdict

You can’t go wrong with the International Concepts 5-Shelf Standard Bookcase (view at Lowes), which is crafted from solid wood for unmatched durability and has a simple, classic form that can be styled to suit any decor. For something smaller, consider the ClosetMaid Cube Bookcase (view at Wayfair), which is just 44 inches tall and offers three cube-shaped shelves for your possessions.


Because bookcases often have to support quite a bit of weight, it’s important to find one that’s made from strong and durable materials. Solid wood is usually the best option, but can be quite expensive. More affordable options include metal, which is especially sturdy, and manufactured wood, which may have a lower weight capacity per shelf.


When comparing bookcases, you’ll want to look at their dimensions to ensure they’ll fit comfortably in your home. (You may also want to measure to see if they’ll fit through doorways or up tight staircases.) Other size considerations to take into account include how tall the shelves are, as well as if they can be adjusted. This is especially important if you’re planning to display tall books or oversized pieces of decor.

Weight Capacity

Books can be quite heavy—a 1-foot row of average-sized books typically weighs around 20 pounds—so you should always check the weight capacity of the shelves on a bookcase. If you’re planning to display a full shelf of books, the shelf should be able to hold 50 pounds or more, depending on its width.

This article was written by Camryn Rabideau, a freelance writer who has a background in interior design. As an avid reader with hundreds of books in her personal library, she’s no stranger to shopping for bookcases—in fact, she has five of them in her home! To find the best options for this article, she consulted dozens of customer and third-party reviews, considering affordability, style, and size.
