Best bookshelves for under £100

We've created a round-up of the best bookshelves on the market. There's something here for all budgets and tastes.

We’ve compiled a list of the top ten places to buy bookshelves for under £100. You can be certain you’ll find what you’re looking for in our round up, from handmade artisan bookcases to Scandi-inspiring tower units.


John Lewis 

If you’re looking for a quality retailer to purchase your bookshelves from, then John Lewis is a great option. Try The Basics range for reassuringly low prices on these everyday items. We’d recommend looking at the Dexter for only £59.



If you’re looking for both a variety of choice and value for money, then head to Argos. You’d be hard pressed to find a bookcase that isn’t under £100. Choose between traditional wooden numbers, colourful units, shelving ladders, sleek modern ones and more.



If you’re good with your hands, or know someone that is, why not make the bookshelves yourself? It’s a great way of keeping costs down, plus you can design them to your own specifications. Homebase have a great range of shelving to choose from.



MADE is a much-loved furniture brand. It’s known for bringing beautiful designs directly from the makers to you, at affordable prices. Although the bookcases are over-budget, they do sell stunning bookshelves for under £50. These are well worth a look.



Of course, there’s the Billy bookcase, which is IKEA’s biggest seller. It comes in many reincarnations, from a slimline model to one with doors, open faced to paneled units. But, that’s not it. IKEA also have a vast range of other bookcases to choose from.



With prices starting from £12, Tesco really do come out trumps in this area. The options are endless for all new homeowners. From wall mountings to ladder units, S-shaped bookcases to adjustable displays. Plus, they also have a great range of children’s bookcases.



Heal’s is legendary for two main reasons: high-quality and long-lasting furniture. It’s true that many of their bookcases will be out of budget, however they do offer some fantastic Scandi-inspired tower shelving systems. These are both utilitarian and jaw-droppingly beautiful.


Rockett St George  

If we could kit out our entire house with Rockett St George, we would. This stylish and quirky brand succeeds in collating both eclectic and charming interiors at affordable prices. Choose between industrial wire storage shelving units, traditional oak shelving with cast iron brackets and everything in between.



The king of convenience, Amazon allows you to choose between hundreds of bookcases and bookshelves, so you’re sure to find something you like. Plus, you can sort by prices, specification and reviews, to ensure that it meets your criteria.



Last, but certainly not least, we’ll leave you with Etsy. This is one of our favourites. Etsy sells handmade crafts directly from the designers themselves. This way, you can ensure that you’re supporting local talent. Plus, the quality and value for money are worth shouting about.
