You can use these versatile pieces of furniture to display pictures, store your children's toys, partition a large room, organize your closet, and much more. You can put a bookcase anywhere you have a space to fill, a need for organization or a desire to display.
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.
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.
