How do you make a built in bookcase with a desk?
What is the difference between a bookshelf and a bookcase? A bookcase is a close-sided unit that literally encases books and is designed to sit on the floor, while a bookshelf does not have encased ends and is usually designed to hang on a wall. Bookcases tend to be more traditional than bookshelves and are often installed as permanent recessed fixtures in a home.
What is a desk with shelves called? The credenza desk is sometimes flat, like a pedestal desk, but more often than not it has a stack of shelves, small drawers and other nooks above its main working surface. The sum of these overhead amenities is usually called a hutch. Hence, the credenza desk is often called a “credenza with hutch”.
What are hidden desks called? There are four main types of hidden desk systems used in home office furniture design including the pull-out desk, the Murphy desk that pulls down from the wall or cabinet, the pivoting fold away desk and the closet desk. Each has its advantages and disadvantages.
