8 Bookshelf Design and Decor IdeasBy Sahana Rajagopal
Decor Tips Tweet 0 Comment(s)
A room apart from the rest of the house, calmer and quieter yet designed beautifully with an abandonment of shelves just for books. This truly is every reader’s paradise. A place to simply forget life and all its issues. A place to relive our fantasies. A place to get lost in the various stories spun in these novels. An entire room devoted only to books would certainly be a dream come true.
But alas, this is simply going to be dream for all of us living in urban areas. Our urban homes are obviously unfit to encompass such a room. However they can certainly be modified to create a compact library! Every urban home has these little nooks and corners which can be converted into a similar paradise where you can disappear into your novels.
Beneath the chair
A common problem face by all urban residents is the lack of space! However now-a-days designers are coming up with creative as well space effective designs. Here’s one of them: a sitting area which is also a bookshelf. This way you can not only pick out books easily but also save a huge amount of space.
An eternal shower of Christmas Gifts
An arrangement of books in the form of a Christmas tree is not only very handy but also is very decorative in its appeal.
Stairway of Heaven!
This is one of the best space saving ideas that i have come across so far. Having a bookshelf underneath the staircase is not only compact but also is extremely appeasing to the eye. Its also a cozy spot to drag a chair to sit and read.
This is an extremely unique way of arranging books! Though the bookshelf isn’t an extremely creative one, the arrangement definitely catches your attention!
Does your child love books? If yes, then this the ideal library for him! Firstly it can accommodate all of his favorite books and secondly its movable and hence a lot more fun.
Out in the Open
If you are one of those people who like to display their books for everyone to see (most people prefer private areas), then this is surely the perfect one for you. Displaying books in the living room instead of photographs or showpieces like the usual crowd. It’s not only very unique but also gives a medieval look to the room!
The Raw and Rusty look
This is one of the perfect bookshelves for a man-cave! Not only does it give a raw and rusty appeal, but it’s also extremely interesting. Also this is a must try idea for those who like reading but don’t own a lot of books. You can place a chair or an ottoman beside this rack, and it becomes a cozy reading corner!
One of the perfect reading nooks which also consists of a compact library! Such a corner can be a part of any home, big or small. It’s perfect for reading as it is cozy and also a place to let loose and relax.
Every book lover needs a place to unwind with their books. As an avid reader myself, I understand the need for a personal library. These are a few ideas that maybe you could try out at your homes!
