First, a shopper must consider the dimensions of the area where he or she wants to put the bookcase. Its important to choose a bookcase that will fit comfortably into that area of the room. Fortunately, bookcases are available in a variety of widths and heights that suit many types of rooms. Its a good idea to take exact measurements of the area in a room before purchasing your bookcase.
Bookcases are available in a range of styles to meet the preferences of almost any shopper. For instance, there are bookcases made in the traditional style. Generally, these are wall bookcases that have plenty of shelves to accommodate a book collection as well as a pair of attractive glass doors. Alternatively, there are bookcases that feature a combination of styles. For example, a bookcase may double as a china cabinet. A person can store books in the case as well as display decorative knickknacks on some of the smaller shelves. There are even corner bookcases that fit neatly into the corner of a room. Some people prefer to choose a bookcase in a style that complements the other pieces of furniture in a room.
The three main types of bookcases are:
Bookcases are available with different quantities of shelves. Some bookcases have four shelves while others have six or more. A shopper may want to think about the size of his or her book collection before purchasing a particular bookcase. A bookcase must have enough shelves to accommodate all of the books in a persons collection and even have some room leftover for new additions!
Door design is the next consideration for a person in the market for a glass door book shelf. There are many types of door designs to choose from. For instance, there are glass doors that lift up and slide back into a bookcase. Alternatively, there are bookcases with doors that open outward on hinges. Some bookcases have doors that slide sideways to open. A shopper must choose the door design that meets with his or her decorative tastes.
4. Shelf bookcases - Finally the most common type is the shelf bookcase from which the term bookshelf or bookshelves takes its cue. As the name implies, these are essentially shelves arranged to hold different size books and these book shelves can be open-backed or closed-backed. The most common are the 2-shelf, 3-shelf and 4-shelf bookcases although a fair number of 5 and 6-shel bookcases also make their way into book-loving homes, offices and libraries.
