There are seven main types of bookcases, and each one comes in a variety of sizes, shapes and finishes. No matter what decorating scheme you are trying to achieve, a bookcase can provide a stylish and practical addition to any room in your home.
Another thing to look for is adjustable shelving. While you can get by with fixed shelves, adjustable shelves allow you more flexibility when it comes to creating visually pleasing setups. Need more space for your hardcovers? Not a problem. Trying to squeeze in a vase? Just adjust the shelving until you have the right fit.
You'll have to decide between an antique and modern bookcase, and which side you end up on will probably be based on personal preference and the size of your budget. There is a fairly big selection of antique barrister bookcases on the market, so if you're inclined it isn't impossible to find one. Just know that you'll be paying more for an antique than you would for a newer barrister. If you want that antique look but you don't have the budget, look for a newer, distressed barrister. Antique barristers will almost definitely be constructed from solid wood, ensuring a higher level of quality. If you're buying a new barrister bookcase, make sure to find one made from solid wood if quality is the main factor in your purchase.
