5 Tips to Design Your Home Library

Design a library that will give your abode major appeal with these tips.

Identify the Style

Determine the look that you’re going for. Is it a moody traditional look or an eclectic modern one?

Consider the Functionality

If your library will function as a home office, include space for a desk and keep the overall ambiance in mind.

Built-in Bookcases

Consider the size of your book collection and if you’ll be using the shelves to display artwork or other objects. 

Comfortable Seating

Whether it’s a chaise lounge or plush leather chairs, the furniture should be comfortable and sophisticated. 

Thoughtful Lighting

Recessed lighting is best for reading, whereas wall sconces can contribute to the ambiance.
