Ladder bookcases are sleek and free-standing, so they are a great decoration piece for your home. They have a fairly contemporary design and work great in tight spaces.
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.
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.
Don't forget that each of these bookcases comes in a variety of finishes to accent any home's current décor. Take the time to consider which varieties are best suited for the rooms in your home, and start taking advantage of the many uses of bookcases today.
