A Booklover’s Dream

Are you a book lover as I am? Do you have lots of books and wonder where to keep them? Or perhaps you have a huge space and don’t need to worry about your books? Or perhaps you live in a small space and you still mange to squeeze some space for your beloved books. A home filled with books exudes a warmth to me and I cannot or rather do not wish to live in a home without books. Even in this age of technology I like to read paper books.

My house is not as small as compared to many, It’s around 1200 sq feet. Even with this much space I often wonder where to store my books and that too with a style. Here I found some options for eye candy.

This one above from Avenue Lifestyle is a sort of minimalist bookshelf, but I still like it. I am drawn to minimalism these days (not with bookshelves though) and if you are a minimalist, this can be an option for you.

Couldn’t find the source. If you know, please send me a message and I will give the credit.

The above two examples show how beautifully you can use a narrow room or hallway to store books.

If you have just one not so wide wall in your bedroom or living room, this is an option. I am not sure if this is custom built, but you can create this look inexpensively by using IKEA Kallax.

The low bookshelves behind the pink sofa looks like IKEA Billy. Another inexpensive option. The velvet sofa in front of the bookshelves create a luxurious look. The low bookshelves also allows to hang artwork on top of the bookshelves.

The above picture gives a bohemian look and at the same time does not at all look cluttered despite so many books on the shelves.

Nice way to add some greenery.

And finally, if have a very high ceiling, like the picture above, you are real lucky. 🙂
