At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand bookcases in many different styles. After doing some on-line research we have found some useful tips on how to choose the best second hand bookcase with glass doors.
A second hand bookcase with glass doors can be used to protect your books and other belongings from dust and fingerprints while showing them off to guests. The variety of glass-door bookcases may be overwhelming, but considering the case’s likely location and the specific use of the furniture may help you choose the best one for your situation.
You need to consider the material from which the second hand bookcase is made and its color, because it should match its surroundings. You should also make sure it is large enough to hold what you need it to hold, but not too large for the room. Additionally, you should decide whether the bookcase needs glass doors along its entire face or just part of it.
The typical second hand bookcase with glass doors is made of wood, but this does not necessarily narrow down your choices, because there are many types of wood. Consider whether you prefer light wood, such as oak, or darker wood, such as cherry. Before you choose based on personal preference alone, take into consideration where you will put the bookcase, because it should match its surroundings.
Another detail to think about is the size of the second hand bookcase, which means you should consider the size of the room in which it will go. A tall bookcase can overwhelm a small room and might not even fit in a house with low ceilings, while a small bookcase might not sufficiently fill up a large area. In addition, consider the items you will place inside your glass-door bookcase before you decide on the size.
Even after you have finished choosing the material and size of your second hand bookcase with glass doors, you still have a big decision to make, because the doors are a major part of this type of furniture. Some second hand bookcases feature glass doors along the entire front, which may be ideal for a large collection of books that you want to show off. If you have small children or pets, it may be best to purchase a bookcase with glass doors only at the top and wood, metal or plastic doors on the bottom.
