We get it; books are important. Whether they’re textbooks, or you have the drive to collect novels, books tend to pile up in your home like no tomorrow. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The fact is, they’re perfect for the apartment as they’re great decoration pieces. While there’s no right or wrong way to decorate with books, there are some ideas you should consider.
The Bookshelves Should Be Organized
Transform your home by strategically organizing your bookshelves. You have a lot of options depending on your decorative schemes. If you’re going for a modern style, separate your books by their shade of jackets, then organize them to have a rainbow effect. Another style is a bit innovative. Place your books on the shelves along with photos and knick-knacks. Doing this will give you an artistic eye as you stack the books horizontally and vertically. Create a cozy feel to them as you add items in between the books.
Goodbye to the Bookshelf
If you’re itching for an organization, ditch the bookshelf. The irony, we know. Stack your books on top of one another with the largest one placed on the bottom for support. If your stack of books is beginning to look precarious, try using a Sapien Bookcase to hold them steady. But if you plan to read regularly, this might not be the preferred option for you.
If you’re living in a small apartment, bookshelves can be a great separator. Open bookshelves filled with your favorite pages can give easy access to the ones you need to read. In addition, creating a space gives you the opportunity to store other cool items such as vases, vinyl records, and CDs. Your book room should be a place of solace, so think creatively to accommodate to your interests.
