Read below to learn more about the different kinds of bookcases to determine which styles are best suited for your home's needs.
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.
Leaning bookcases add visual interest to a room as they actually lean against the wall. Their frame is in the shape of an "A" and they have different sized shelves from top to bottom.
