If you have a big hallway in your home then there’s no point in turning a room into a home library when you can use this space. You could have a fireplace, built-in bookcases on either side of the door and a comfy armchair or two.
The dining room could also serve as a home library. It could be a transitional space and you could have a simple table, a few comfy chairs and some built-in bookshelves on the wall.
Of course, there’s no designated place for bookshelves. They can become part of any room’s décor. For example, this is a beautiful living room with an eclectic décor and chic white bookshelves framing the fireplace. A very nice combination of colors and textures.
Built-in bookshelves such as these ones are great because they occupy little space in the room and they can also be used for displaying collectibles and decorations or accessories. It’s a look you could choose for the bedroom, living room, home office and basically any other space.
This contemporary home office looks very elegant and professional. The built-in bookshelves are beautifully lit and highlighted and they complement the white wall unit beautifully, especially considering all the other pieces.
