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.
Take some time to look around at examples. As you see various types and models of bookcases keep track of the types that would work best for you. Once back home, check online. You could save quite a hefty amount by buying it this way. You will have a good idea of the quality and be assured that you'll be happy with your new bookcase.
Don't forget that each of these bookcases comes in a variety of finishes to accent any home's current décor. Take the time to consider which varieties are best suited for the rooms in your home, and start taking advantage of the many uses of bookcases today.
