At Houzz we want you to buy White Bookcase With Glass Doors with confidence. If you don’t believe us, just ask a few people and they will tell you that they haven’t found a bookcase with glass doors anywhere else but at Houzz. This is one of those rare items that will add to your home’s decor without breaking the bank and certainly won’t cost you an arm and a leg. It will cost you quite a bit more than a typical bookcase with glass doors though so you have to decide whether or not it’s a price you’re willing to pay.
The first thing you need to do is figure out what kind of a bookcase with glass doors you are looking for. This is a pretty simple task. Basically, there are two types: those that have glass-front units and those that have glass sides. The difference between these two types is pretty substantial and usually only requires a small adjustment to make your selection. For example, if you like a lot of sunlight coming into your home, then go with a glass-front bookcase. If you prefer a bit of privacy but don’t mind the extra light, then go with a glass side bookcase.
Now that you know what type of a bookcase with glass doors you are after, it’s time to find out how much room you have to work with. Obviously the amount of space available determines the size of the unit. For those who live in very small apartments or very large houses, this isn’t terribly important. However, for those living in smaller spaces, you have to make sure you take that into account. Remember, those shelves with hinges are going to add to the overall length of the unit.
You also need to figure out how many books you will be putting in the unit. This information will help you determine the size of the cabinet as well as the number of inches you need. Obviously, if you have a bookshelf you can just get one with the appropriate dimensions. Glass cabinet doors are usually only two inches wide and six inches tall. A two-inch bookcase is the perfect size for anyone who has a fairly decent-sized bookshelf. On the other hand, a six-inch bookcase is more than adequate for someone who has a wide assortment of books.
Next, you have to take the measurements of your wall to determine what size of bookcase you will need. For those who don’t mind a little bit of messy woodworking, they can purchase a bookcase with glass doors and a bookcase base. This will require them to make two or three extra shelves inside the bookcase so they have something to grab onto when they are trying to maneuver the bulky glass doors. Remember though, if you buy one with glass doors and a bookcase base, then you have to make sure the two pieces of wood that are holding the doors and the bookcase together are the same height.
For those who would rather skip all of that work, there are actually a variety of beautiful white bookcases available on the market today. A quick search on the Internet will reveal dozens of different companies who can build you a bookcase with any type of doors you want. To ensure that the shelving is at the right height, you will also need to measure the distance between the bottom of the two shelves where the glass doors will be opened. The ideal spot for these would be at the very top of the bookcase, as close to the ceiling as possible. You will want to position the shelves so the bottom shelves face towards the door that you are using to open the books.
For some people, simply placing a beautiful bookcase in their home will be enough to brighten up the entire room. However, if you have a glass bookcase and would like to add some other decorative items to the room, such as an intricate mirror, you will have to first check price online. If you can afford to spend more, then by all means do so. There is nothing quite like seeing a well-designed bookcase illuminating up your living space.
If you find the bookcase that you are interested in at a reasonable price, simply bring it home, and start adding some accents to the room. You could install a tall, elegant bookcase mirror above the shelf where you will place your newly purchased glass bookshelf. If you have a few other book shelves already installed, then you could fill that room with several styles of bookshelves, each with a different look and style.
