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.
This comes in handy because the barrister bookcase allows you to show off the collection, while keeping (or even adding to) the interesting and eye-catching visuals that bookcases provide. They are a great choice for serious book collectors who are concerned with preserving the condition of their books. The glass front-piece is effective in keeping out dust and moisture, and tempered glass can be added to the bookcase to keep out harmful sunlight that will fade and degrade the book's spine, cover and paper. The doors also act as a deterrent for curious onlooker's who want to touch books that shouldn't be handled.
Over the years, barrister bookcases have kept up with the changing fashions simply by adapting their doors to suit the times. There is a barrister bookcase to fit in with any style of home or any kind of decor. If you have a room which is traditional, there are barrister bookcases in deep mahogany or oak with leaded glass doors. If you have a sleek, ultra modern room, you can get them in black or white with trendy sliding doors.
