The Seven Main Types of Bookcases
Before purchasing bookcases it is important that you ask a few questions to yourself, like, what kind of books would you like to display in the bookcase, how many book shelves you would like to have; will you be able to shift your bookcase to some other place, etc. Deciding everything beforehand would always make things easier.
Built-in bookcases are made to be built into a room. Because they become part of the wall space, they are a great way to open up a room. You do have to plan carefully when deciding to use these bookcases, however, because they cannot be moved around like other models can.
You may not have heard the term before, but we all know what barrister bookcases are. It is like taking a regular bookcase and adding a glass door to the front that slides up and into the case to allow access. They show off your attractive books while at the same time keeping the dust at bay.
