Corner Bookshelf: If you have limited space available in your home, you should go with the corner bookshelves. You can cover the unused corner of your living area with a corner bookshelf. This type of shelf comes in different sizes to offer you more storage.
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.
While there are some newer versions of this style of bookcase, being built in less expensive and less durable materials a true barrister bookcase is going to be made of quality hardwood. They are going to also be made of high quality glass inserts in the doors and have fine brass features such as handles, knobs and hinges. On the high quality pieces you will find that the joints are put together with dove tail and assorted other traditional methods of fastening rather than more modern methods of screws and nails.
