Buying Guide

If your sliding glass bookcase features fairly wide glass panels or a mainly glass-based design, it’s worth investing in tempered glass: this is the strongest type of glass used in furniture, so you won’t have to worry too much about accidental breakages.

However, if the glass panels are smaller and mainly decorative, most types of glass will do, although it’s always safer to go for thicker models.

For a sliding glass bookcase, you’re going to want a dense hardwood to provide structure for your heavy books (and that heavy glass). We’d recommend an oak or a maple for this reason; or, if you’re looking for a more cost-efficient, smaller bookcase, select a birch or a walnut.

You can paint any of these to match the colors you want in your home, or stain them darker or lighter as you wish.
