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.
There are many different types of bookcases available in the markets. Ladder bookcases are good as they can be even used as decorative furniture, as they are free standing units. There are available in almost all colors and sizes. The leaning bookcases, as the name suggests, take the support of the wall that is behind them. They will provide you with staggered shelves from the top until the bottom by leaning against the back wall. Individuals who want flexibility in moving their bookcases should purchase folding bookcases. In this type of bookcase, you just need to pack the books, fold the case and off you go. If you have a corner that is lying wasted, then you could get a corner bookcase that makes the corner look attractive with your books, treasures and collections. Dormitory bookcases are the best for people living in apartments and student dormitories. These are designed for people who aren't living in a location permanently and need to move around a lot. You could also go for revolving bookcases, you might not have thought of getting one, but they can be very space-living sleek, and they will surely catch your eye. Barrister bookcases are mainly meant for offices, but they can be used in your homes too. They have got glass doors separately for each shelf to protect your treasured books.
Floating Bookshelves: This type of bookshelf has a single rack that is attached to a wall. It is suitable for magazines or other light weighted books. You can keep your comics and graphic novels on it to keep alive the memories of childhood tales.
