We often talk about book storage and placement on Apartment Therapy. Since so many readers enjoy their book collections for reading enjoyment and also decor in their space, we thought we would revisit some of Apartment Therapy's storage solutions. Check them out after the jump.
When your footprint is limited, consider going vertical
and storing your books in your rafters
. This storage solution draws the eye up and provides additional floor space for your other items.
Storing your books on shelves by color coordination
is one idea that a lot of Apartment Therapy readers enjoy and also don't enjoy.
Stacking books into functional furniture
is another idea we have talked about on Apartment Therapy.
There are tons of ways to stack books to create a visual impact in your home. One way is to consider stacking them any which way
, creating a controlled chaotic vibe.
If you have a) the room and b) the book collection, consider making your books the focal point of living space.
We see this book storage solution frequently and think it's a great idea for small spaces
. Use your book shelf as a room divider
and create design and function.
