Size is another major consideration. Remember that bigger is not always better; make sure that you consider the size of your room or the space where you plan on putting the bookcase when you consider options. There are many different configurations and sizes available which allows you to choose one that will work for any situation. Look at your space available. A tall, narrow barrister bookcase can fill in that bare space between two windows. If you have a window with a high sill, a small bookcase will fit underneath nicely. As well as thinking about height and width, don't forget the depth. Make sure that you consider the sizes of your books and other items that you plan to store in your bookcase.
So these are the basic types of bookshelves that are widely used by the homeowners. You should consider your available space, requirements, and preferences before choosing one for your home. You can place this functional piece of furniture in any room to create a clutter-free environment. You can accommodate your novels, magazines, dictionaries and some decorative pieces on its racks.
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.
