When thinking of a perfect space, we tend to imagine it with the factors that are the most convenient for our comfort and elements that we enjoy within our private bubble automatically attached to it.
These spaces speak and portray the person’s character through the creation of a certain experience. For bookworm people and book enthusiasts, home library décor should be taken into consideration where this ideal space within their home would be centered around the presence of a library or an even simple home box bookshelf in that same space.
Home library décor should provide a certain state of comfort to avoid transgression with the person’s imagination while reading and experiencing the space by adding an elegant charm in this safe corner with a book archive integrated within the space.
For this blog, I will be sharing home library ideas in different types of spaces and communicating different experiences.
The library’s role in a house is changing dramatically with information that are available virtually anywhere at any time. Housing countless books has become of secondary importance for people but this isn’t the case for bibliophiles who still find joy in the physical book itself and consider the home library as a broader resource than ever and a crucial part of the interior design of a space. The library doesn’t require more space within the house, but simply rethinking how the library “corner” is used.
- The following image shows how Kassar company interpreted the home library in an apparent kids’ bedroom making it part of the working space with two sets on each side of the desk.
Kids can place their books in the library freeing up space on the desk, especially now that online classes and activities are becoming dominant.
- In a render view, 3d.max.render, a 3d render and animation company based in Beirut, Lebanon, developed a more mature and office like use of a library inside a home space. The library can be used for décor as well as storing books for professional or personal use.
- Speaking of storage and library use and for home library ideas, the image shows a design of a library made out of steel rods for support with stone shelves where books are combined with decorative elements.
On the shelves are places different types of objects, from decorations (paintings, pictures, different types of arts) to plants, candles and certainly books.
This makes us rethink what additional functions can a library provide to the space where it is inserted.
