You will want to consider your display needs as well. These bookcases are designed to protect things from everyday life including handling, dust and the effects of environmental changes. While most of these are going to have fixed shelving, there are some options, which offer adjustable shelving as well as the pull out shelving that makes them convenient for storing flat items. Once you have decided on the type of shelving and features you want on the bookcase you will need to consider the size or the number of bookcases you will need to store and display your collection. Keep in mind that you will need to account for the space that you have available to place bookcases or the space you want to include these furniture pieces in.
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.
When looking into barrister bookcases that may be antiques there are a few things that you may want to look into before investing in the piece. The first is look for tags, stickers or labels. These are going to indicate the year, the manufacturer and any other information. Antiques have history so you will want to ensure that the piece has some history to it that can be traced.
