Fitting your space
Size is another major consideration. Remember that bigger is not always better; make sure that you consider the size of your room or the space where you plan on putting the bookcase when you consider options. There are many different configurations and sizes available which allows you to choose one that will work for any situation. Look at your space available. A tall, narrow barrister bookcase can fill in that bare space between two windows. If you have a window with a high sill, a small bookcase will fit underneath nicely. As well as thinking about height and width, dont forget the depth. Make sure that you consider the sizes of your books and other items that you plan to store in your bookcase.
If you are a book lover, then you are bound to have a lot of books in your home, which you have purchased and read. However, to keep these books safe and sound is a difficult task. The best solution for this is to have a bookcase or bookshelf in your study room, living room or bedroom, where ever you want to keep it, and stack all your books in it. This looks tidy and classy, so that if anyone visits your house, they can see all those amazing books you have read and collected till the date.
You may not have heard the term before, but we all know what barrister bookcases are. It is like taking a regular bookcase and adding a glass door to the front that slides up and into the case to allow access. They show off your attractive books while at the same time keeping the dust at bay.
You can incorporate a television and CD player units in a bookcase in your home to enjoy all your entertainment activities at one spot.
Color is all important. If you tend to redecorate a lot, a natural varnished wood may be your best bet. Always neutral, it will fit in with your changing color schemes. If your style is very modern and minimalist, a white or silver barrister bookcase with slick, clean lines would be perfect for you. If you are very much a traditionalist, bookcases in a rich colored wood will look striking.
