The narrow bookcase is something near and dear to my heart, having owned a few of them over the course of my years while living in apartments. Just when you think you’ve done everything possible to save space, think again. And if you are wondering just what type of furniture you can use to fit in a small space, you might not have ever considered using a bookshelf to store things other than books, but they make great places to store and even showcase a whole host of different items.
