Some of the newer barrister bookcases may cost less but they are not as well made and will not hold up over time as well as the older barrister bookcases made out of better quality wood. The glass in the doors of the newer models is also not going to be as good quality nor are the other parts like handles and hinges. You can tell a good barrister bookcase by looking at the joints, which should be dove-tailed or attached in another traditional way and not with screws or nails like the newer bookcases.
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.
Take some time to look around at examples. As you see various types and models of bookcases keep track of the types that would work best for you. Once back home, check online. You could save quite a hefty amount by buying it this way. You will have a good idea of the quality and be assured that you'll be happy with your new bookcase.
