Are you a book worm? Do you have volumes of books bursting out of every corner of your apartment, and the bookcases in your living room can no longer hold all of their load? Are boxes of books lined up wherever you can stack them? If so, it’s about time that you designed your own home library by DIY home decor. Creating a library does not have to be difficult. All you need are space, shelves, and common sense. If you have an extra room, you are particularly fortunate.
When doing a DIY home decor for a library, the first thing you need to do is check the conditions of the room that you will be using. It is not a good idea to simply use a room that has another function. A library needs to stand alone. If you have no other choice, then use the room as your office or study. But do not double up as a bedroom or a living room because it really does not work.
Then take a look at the physical conditions of the room. Is it conducive to damp or mildew? If so, then it is not a good idea to use it as a library because your books could be completely ruined by moisture and mold. How strong is the floor? Can it handle the weight of many shelves of heavy volumes? Think twice before adopting a loft area for this reason.
Once you have settled on the best room for your library, think about the kind of shelving that you want to use. Recessed shelving utilizes space well, but you need a professional to install it. Freestanding shelving can be adapted easily to colors, styles, and heights, but they can take up a lot of space. Look into all the options. And once again – take strength and quality into account. Remember that they have to hold a lot of heavy books.
Even though most of what you will see in your library is books and bookshelves, you should also think of a color scheme and make it a pleasant, relaxed place. Install a desk and a comfortable chair so that you can sit down and read at your leisure – rather like a public library. Add a touch of luxury with area rugs. You can decide on the kind of look that you want your library to have. If you want a classical look, a floral rug would be great. But if you are going with a modern look, with white walls, symmetrical bookshelves, and recessed lighting, you may prefer a contemporary rug.
In DIY home decor, you should choose your designs carefully. Remember that your hobbies are often a reflection of yourself, and your library can also mirror your taste. If you like a classical look, you can reflect that in your choice of bookshelves and layout. Remember to leave one wall blank – the wall with the picture window that will provide light. A library needs to have a lot of natural light as this is a place where you enlighten your intellect. If it is necessary to add any artificial light, try to go for something relatively subdued rather than too bright and glaring, yet not too dim either.
