The benefit of a home library is way beyond adding a piece of furniture to dress an empty room. When the humble corner shelf can no longer contain your collections of book, it’s time to share your passion for knowledge with a home library that offers plenty of good things that goes a long way.

Three white bookshelves with curvy edges are filled with plenty of books and making a trendy addition to the home library.
Add Cushioned Sofas

Two Story Home Library
When there’s still not enough space to contain all the precious books in one room, we can always extend the home library downwards and transform the dormant basement into a cozy seating corner. Connect the two library floors with an exquisite spiral staircase that blends in with the railings on the opening of the second floor. Invite a playful mood to the library with colorful swirls and circles from the artsy painting.
The impressive towering bookshelf is extending upwards, passing the second floor to reach the ceiling. The white bookshelf, that provides ample of open space to organize more than just books and decorative, becomes a very interesting focal point in the house. Make sure it’s standing secure against the wall, and a sliding ladder might have to be added for maintenance and easy access to the higher shelves.
It’s like we can almost smell the scent of old books and the sound of the yellowing old pages turning. We can finally appreciate the value of this home library, a familiar look that we knew from our childhood; shelves filled with books and journals are covering almost the entire wall of the room, and the same old chairs and tables have been sitting there for as long as the home was built.
Read and relax under the flood of sunlight and breeze of fresh air in the home library with glass panel walls.

A dormant corner can be transformed into a stylish home library with the addition of a wall-size wooden bookshelf.

Libraries usually classified books by genres or in alphabets, but arranging same-colored books in one shelf can be highly decorative and aesthetically pleasing. This home library is furnished with a white chair, complete with the blue patterned ottoman and plush pillow that adds more pop of color to the room.
