Home Library Ideas and Inspiration From Interior Design Experts

It’s every book lover’s dream to create the perfect home library to showcase your book collection. There’s nothing like the space created by a home library for your family to relax, unwind, and curl up with a good book. However, it can be difficult to visualize the cozy reading nook you know will add to your living space.

Living Room Library

While designing the Living Room Library, the main focus was on book storage. “You have to think of how much storage will be needed and how the library will be used,” said Susan Spath, president of design firm, Kern & Company. “If the client has a large collection of books, I like to know ahead of time so I can design the built-ins around that.”

Additionally, Spath recommends taking advantage of high ceilings in a home library, as “floor to ceiling shelving and bookcases can add a lot of storage to the space, but also give the library a great look,” she explains.
