Floating Bookshelves: This type of bookshelf has a single rack that is attached to a wall. It is suitable for magazines or other light weighted books. You can keep your comics and graphic novels on it to keep alive the memories of childhood tales.
A good quality barrister bookcase doesn't come cheap, so there are a few factors to consider. As with all furniture, the correct location is vital. This can mean the difference between a barrister bookcase having the wow factor, or simply being looked on as a bit of furniture. Soft wall lighting, or built in lighting, will really show it off to its best.
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.
