One of the habits that successful people have is to read books every single day. Elon Musk read for 10 hours each day before growing up to become Tesla CEO, Warren Buffett spends five to six hours a day reading five different newspapers, and the former Microsoft CEO, Bill Gates has attested to reading 50 books a year, or roughly one book a week.
Not only do bookshelves allow you to proudly show off your collection, but they also add personality and style to everything in your house. Although we are now in the digital age, no technology can compare to the feeling of holding a good book in your hands. And we want to store our favorite volumes in a space that is personal and intimate.
You can decorate your home library in a formal look, elegant look, colorful look, or even a cozy and stylish focal point of the room. Styling a bookshelf requires an eye for balance, design, and color. You may explore different ways to spruce up old wooden bookshelves, DIY bookmarks, and style built-in shelves.
Here, we compiled different bookshelf ideas to inspire your own literary retreat. So, put your favorite books on display for a space that is well-designed and well-read! No matter the project you’re looking to challenge, these creative bookshelf ideas will add playful character to your home.
