Another consideration is the construction of a bookcase. Most bookcases with glass doors are wooden. There are bookcases made out of maple, oak, and mahogany as well as other types of wood. Once again, a shoppers decision depends on his or her personal tastes and visions for the look of the room where the bookcase will be. Regardless of its type of wood, a bookcase should be well-built and sturdy.
There are four most important types or categories of bookcases. Under these four main categories are a plethora of different bookcase styles that might fit your space. Each type comes in a number of sizes, shapes and finishes allowing you the certainty that you will find something to match your taste and current home or office decor.
The three main types of bookcases are:
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.
The color of a bookcase is the next feature to consider. Many people like to choose bookcases that coordinate with the rest of the furnishings in a room. For instance, if a person has a collection of furniture in light-colored oak, he or she may opt for a bookcase made with the same material. There are bookcases that feature colors such as brown, black, espresso, cream, and even weathered white. There are so many colors available a shopper is sure to find just what he or she is looking for.
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.
