Glass Door Bookcase Shopping Tips
Buying glass door bookcases should be done with caution, especially if you have children running around the house. For safety purposes, buy bookcases with glass doors that do not start from the floor but only from higher up to keep the glass out of children’s reach. You can choose bookcases that have wooden doors on the bottom, complete with child-proof locks, and glass doors on top. This type of bookcase also works best if you want to keep things that you do not want on display in the bookcase as well.
Some retailers sell bookcases with optional glass doors and you can save money by buying only glass doors for the shelves where you plan to display books and leave some shelves with no doors at all. For example, if you plan to keep your silver and china on one shelf and your books in the other shelves, choose a bookcase with optional doors and add doors for the one shelf you plan to keep the silver in. You may also want to look for bookcases with sliding glass doors instead of pull-out glass doors. Check out sliding glass doors first before buying to see if you prefer its style and functionality. If you want to store contents that you don’t want visitors to see, you can buy modular glass door bookcases with glass doors for the top cabinets and stack them on bookcases with wooden doors for the bottom cabinets.
