The Seven Main Types of Bookcases
Ladder bookcases are sleek and free-standing, so they are a great decoration piece for your home. They have a fairly contemporary design and work great in tight spaces.
Just like regular bookcases, you'll find barrister bookcases in all shapes and sizes. Take an account of your book collection so that you get a general idea of what size barrister you need. Barristers look like stacked cabinets, so the more space you need, the more cabinets are required. One cabinet barrister bookcases are great pieces of accent furniture that be used generously throughout the house, while larger, 4-6 cabinet barrister bookcases can become the focal point of your room.
Finding a quality barrister bookcase is going to take time and it is going to take the willingness to shop around in order to find what you are looking for. You are going to want to look for labels and history if you are looking at antiques. For newer options, you will want to check out the quality of the wood being used as well as the glass and joints to ensure that you are getting a piece that will endure for generations to come.
