Gaetane. Bookcase. July 20th , 2017.
Some people would even have a bookcase in the smallest room in the house if they had the space. Whilst that may not be for everyone it shows you can put them absolutely anywhere. So, what of the concept of using wooden bookcases for displaying items? They do lend themselves to this use perfectly. You get a lot of display space to put your things, ornaments and picture frames mixed together. People like to have memories of happy times on display and that is what you will find on many bookcases. Whereas we once had china cabinets or curio cabinets, we now go for bookcases to display things.
Finally, there are different styles of glass in the doors of bookcases. Of course, a shopper can find plenty of bookcases with doors that feature plain glass. Alternatively, many antique bookcases have leaded glass doors. This lends elegant detail to the appearance of a bookcase. There are some bookcases available with frosted glass doors. Bookcases sometimes have plain glass doors that feature intriguing designs. In short, the glass doors of a bookcase can sometimes be the highlight of the entire piece.
Regardless of its type of wood, a bookcase should be well-built and sturdy. 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.
However, those who had books to store kept them in small containers. The containers had no distinct style or design but, there were scholars who adapted to great looking collections when the market finally opened up. These small containers had transformed and they managed to inspire the first custom bookcases ever built. They first looked like cupboards but later evolved to bookcases. They were made out of a variety of materials which included pine, maple, oak and also cherry.
An enclosed bookcase is ideal if you plan to display expensive books, decorative items, or collection pieces because there is no chance of harm to the encased objects. A bookcase containing doors is also quite beneficial if you are tired of dusting surfaces in your home. The shelves stay dust-free longer as long as the doors are kept closed unless you are accessing something. A tall open bookcase can also be used to house decorative baskets where you can store magazines, childrens toys, or other small objects that would otherwise pile up or appear as clutter in the room.
