Top 10 Bookcases and Display Cabinets

A beautifully-designed bookcase or display cabinet is always a welcome addition to any reception room, study or hallway. To be honest, a bookcase or display cabinet are often interchangeable – it just depends how much you enjoy dusting. Of course, a modern luxury bookcase is about so much more than just books. We believe books are an essential part of every sophisticated home, but everyone also has their own collection of treasures, heirlooms and beautiful belongings, all of which deserve pride of place in their own stunning display unit.

The Difference between a Bookcase and a Display Cabinet

In terms of design, a display cabinet usually has glass doors whereas a bookcase does not. Display units may also have glass shelves or a mirrored back panel to show off the contents from every angle. Having said that, there is little difference in their function. A beautiful bookcase can display and highlight your favourite photographs, a statue, glassware and even the smallest trinkets. At the same time, a display cabinet can provide a glamorous storage solution for your books and paperwork. Even a modern TV media centre can combine all your digital entertainment with a love of literature and the written word. So when you are searching for the perfect bookcase or display unit, don’t just limit yourself to a specific description. Expand your search to include a bookcase, book shelf, display cabinet and display unit. Narrow it down with materials such as glass, oak or lacquer if that is important. Most of all, enjoy browsing and take the time to choose your favourite.
