Home libraries function better than almost any other room of the house. In fact, the main reason why this room-related area has to be so functional and even divided was because of this particular type of design. The actual books are on a stand and the shelf is a part of the wall unit. So when you think about it, it’s up to you to come up with a concept on how to decorate this space in order to make it function the way you want it.
First of all, it’s important to have the books nicely displayed on the wall. So try to choose a wall and place the books on it, preferably against a dark and neutral background. Then you can also have shelves or compartments placed just below the shelves and use them to store or display books. And since we’re now talking about books and art, another great idea would be to opt for some ancient books and turn them into picture frames for the pictures.
If you have an open floor plan, then it’s natural to have all the books arranged on the main wall. But if you only have one book, then it can be a great idea to use the rest of the space in another way, like displaying them above the sofa, turned into a vertical garden. You can use books to give a personal look to a certain area, to create a focal point when you want to save some space or to simply show your passion for certain hobbies or objects.
