Ideas to Inspire: Home Library Designs With Beautiful Bookshelves
Many of us own fewer books today than in past decades, but the allure of print is far from gone. Regardless of the size of your collection, a beautiful home library with bookshelves designed to perfectly showcase them is a must. Home library designs of today vary greatly. While not as popular as they once were, one option is a dedicated home library. This is a great way to display large collections and can be perfectly combined with either home office or lounge vibes if you aren’t going for a library-only space. Another option, and one that has become ever more popular, is to create home library vibes in your living room with beautiful bookshelves, both freestanding or built-in designs work wonderfully.
So, whether you are looking to create a traditional home library, or to simply incorporate bookshelves into a multi-use space, scroll on for designs to inspire a beautiful home library.
