Wooden Bookcases With Doors

Updated On

If you're a book collector, you'll know that one of the biggest drawbacks bookcases have is the dust they allow to collect on and behind your books. If you've ever had to spend time dusting the tops of books, you know how much time it can take to clean when you have more than a shelf full. This selection of eight wooden bookcases provides a solution by giving you options with doors. Glass doors are a perfect choice because they offer the protection you need against dust and dirt while still allowing you to see what's on the shelves.

Wooden Bookcase With Doors on Hairpin Legs

Corrigan Studio®

This free-standing wooden bookcase with doors is waterproof and made from solid and manufactured wood. Four black metal hairpin legs make the bookcase very stable. The bookcase doors feature glass panels on the upper part of the doors, while solid panels fill the bottom third.

Designer Advice:

Unlike bookcases that feature a top crown molding, this flat-sided bookcase can sit tightly against an adjacent bookcase without leaving any gaps between. Place two side by side or create a wall of bookcases. The two shelves are hidden behind door trim when the doors are closed. This bookcase measures 70.7" high by 31.5" wide and is 15.9" deep. The interior depth of the case is deeper than other traditional bookcases and gives you plenty of room to display items.

Designer Advice:

This wooden bookshelf with doors comes in four color options: black, weathered gray, soft white, and a true white option with a weathered wood surface on each shelf top. A special detail on the soft white option features a pretty navy and white design inside the Shaker-style door-front trim. Each bookcase has two hammered bronze farmhouse-style knobs on the door portion. Full assembly is needed to put this 71.5" tall bookcase together.

Buying Guide

What size wooden bookcase with doors should I get?

The size of the wooden bookcase with doors you should get will mainly depend on your book collection and available space.

If space is a concern, consider getting a tall, narrow bookcase that’s around 55” tall and 30” wide. Remember, you can always adorn your bookcase with decorative objects if your books aren’t enough to fill the shelves.

You can also find more compact designs with only 2 shelves if you’ve only got a handful of books to store.

Those who own at least a hundred books should opt for a wooden bookcase with at least 4 spacious shelves.

How do you decorate a bookshelf with doors?

Wooden bookcases with doors offer plenty of decorative possibilities.

The safest trick is to display your books and ornaments on your open shelves or, if you have glass doors, behind the see-through panes. For example, if they’re divided into smaller compartments, you could alternate them by having one with books, one with decorative items, then more books in the one diagonally below the first one, and so on. Alternatively, you could use these decorative items as bookends, too.

If, on the contrary, you have wooden doors, you can use these cupboards to store less glamorous items while showcasing your favorite ones on your open shelves.
