Book storage isn't complicated, but different systems work for different spaces. Here are ten real world solutions for book storage from some of our favorite room tours. They're a great reminder that storage solutions can be big, tall or even take up the entire wall.

1. Sayer's Repurposed Changing Table Shelves: These shelves have been in the family for years and have served many purposes over time. Now they make unique book storage that's right at kid level.

2. Esme Jane's See Through Book Holders: We like the clear display on these shelves, not only does it let the artwork shine through, it also lets little ones see what they're reaching for.

3. Levi's Wooden White Wall Book Shelves: These bookshelves are secured to the wall but don't take up a large footprint. They're a useful style to copy in most any space.

4. Sky High Slim Shelves: These shelves are slim and sleek, without sides or even paint. They're bare bones and we love them.

5. Leighton's Pretty Wall Pouches: These pretty fabric panels hold all sizes of books and provide a pretty accent to the solid walls.

6. Zoe's Display and Utility: In Zoe's room a few special books are displayed as decoration on picture ledges and the bulk of the collection can be found in easy reach in a low bookcase.

7. Liam's In-Between Storage: This spot between two windows is a great space to read. All that light makes it ideal, but a smaller footprint bookcase allows for furniture and even a side table.

8. Meg's Bedside Stash: This simple storage basket helps keep frequent reads at hand. Perfect for a bedtime story or early morning reading before mom and dad wake up.

9. Leo's Wall-To-Wall: These orange shelves make quite the statement and they're great at holding just about everything. Books look great on them and are easily accessible at all ages.

10. Lainey's Small & Simple: This simple rack above a day bed holds the right amount of books to keep little Lainey reading.
