For the avid book lover, there is nothing like awesome bookshelves or a fantastic reading nook. There are tons of creative ideas out there and my only regret is that I can’t put them all in my house. Some of my favorites designs are the converted attic space, the library bathroom, and any bookshelf that has a sliding ladder (I love those!).
Maybe you will find something here that you love too whether you are about to remodel, need shelving ideas, or just want to dream about the awesomeness that is the home library.
I have gathered some of my favorite bookshelves and reading space designs to share with you! Check these out:
This cozy reading corner looks like someone made excellent use of their attic or loft space. I love the fluffy rug.
Spiral staircase up to the bookshelves…awesome!
The space under the staircase is a perfect little reading space. Why don’t home builders always do this?!
I love the curved wood frame around this window seat that makes a perfect reading lounge area.
A staircase just for the bookcase! Love it!
This huge window providing natural light makes for a relaxing reading nook.
I’ve always wanted a “library ladder” in my house. And the hidden space behind these awesome bookshelves ads a little mystery to this beautiful home library.
Now this is my kind of bathtub! Perfection!
Another awesome ladder. I love the cozy lounges. Family reading time anyone?
This reading nook is creative and colorful. It looks like it might be easy to build onto an existing blank wall.
How fun is this chair! No need to get up if you decide you are in the mood for a different book.
Closet converted into a reading nook! Brilliant!
I love the whimsical feel of this converted attic space. Lots of natural light too.
This beautiful room just looks light and airy. And look another library ladder!
And finally, if you have a lot of books that you don’t know what to do with, this looks like a cheap and easy option. Use your books to form the shelving!
