The Beauty of Antique Bookcases

Did you know that studies show that a large percentage of homes owned by people with a net worth of over $1 million have a library in them? Of course, this doesn’t mean that you will become a millionaire by creating your own collection of books but perhaps there is some type of correlation. In any case, if you love to read books or just have a lot of books, then you will want to find a way to store them. There are lots of different bookcases that you can get but if you want something more elegant and high class, then you might want to look into getting some antique bookcases. Let’s take a look at two specific ones.

The first type is the antique barrister bookcase. This type of bookcase from the outside looks like any other type of bookcase but the main difference is the fact that it has a glass cover to not only display your books in an attractive way but to also help protect your books from dirt and dust at the same time. These bookcases can come in different sizes and colors but an antique one will look especially good because of the way it looks. You might want to choose one that will go well with the surrounding furniture though.

The second type is the antique revolving bookcase. This type of bookcase can look very luxurious. Unlike most other bookcases, this one allows you to rotate it. This means you are able to store more books in a smaller floor area so not only will your room look a lot more appealing but you will also be saving room at the same time. Both of these types of bookcases generally sell for several hundred dollars but the antique ones can go as high as over $1,000. You can find these types of antique bookcases by searching for them online.
