Book storage with character

These tips can give your books new looks, whether you show them off or hide them away.

Book storage with character

Create a book display gallery wall. Spotlight your favourite reads. With classics in a display box, they’re out in the open and protected. Books with eye-catching covers can live on picture ledges that hold some weight. Break things up with smaller picture ledges for paperbacks in progress.

Sort (and hide) in book storage boxes. They’ll maximise space, unify the room and keep your books easily accessible. Divide them by subject, owner, author, whatever. Children’s books can go in lower boxes. We played with labelling the boxes by threading fabric as letters.

Give your bookcase a plot twist. Rearrange! Use whatever technique (or two) feels good to you. Group by colour. Alternate vertical rows and horizontal stacks. Leave pockets of air to work in decorative pieces. Shorter bookcases give you space on top to show off more style.
