If you are a bookworm, like myself, it can be hard to find a place to put all of your books without buying a bookshelf. Thankfully, there are multiple unique ways to showcase your book collection without braking the bank. Plus, bookcases are very traditional and take up a lot of space in your home. So today, we are sharing five fun ideas to update, display and organize your books.
Especially, if you have a small space it can be really hard to know where to place your book collection. They can take up space if left stacked and can clutter an area. Plus, if you do have enough space and are not a fan of a traditional bookshelf, a modern way of displaying your books is with a ladder wall shelf. You can place picture frames, dishes, home decor, books or anything you would like to display. Plus, theses wall shelves are not overbearing and can create a focal point in a room.
Whether you have a small or big collection of good reads, keep scrolling to find new ways that are unique to organize your books in your home today.
Bookends are a perfect way to store and display your beloved novels. There is an abundance of options too. From gorgeous stones to historic boats there are an array of bookends at Amazon. I love the Polished Natural Agate Bookend that comes in six different color options for just $19. Another great option is the Sailing Schooner Boat Bookend. This would be perfect in any nautical themed room or office and it has a price tag of just $30. Lastly, if you like the movie Star Wars then check out these Storm Trooper and Darth Vader Bookends.
You can also showcase your books by laying or stacking them on your coffee table. They can be a visual for your guests and also spark conversation. Plus, if your coffee table has two levels stack the majority of the books below in bins or baskets to keep it from looking cluttered. Using an ottoman is another excellent option for storing books in your living room. Especially if you’re in a tight space it will keep them out of sight and reduce clutter.
Baskets and bins make wonderful storage to place books and magazines. They can be easily stowed under beds, beside furniture or tucked away in a closet. Bins and boxes are also nice to label so you know what you’re grabbing. You can also use magazine racks for storing books on a desk, dresser or table. This is a great option for your cookbooks or kids books.
