Something in the modern style


  • Perhaps your taste is more modern – so why not a modern-looking showcase.
  • Note the individual bookcases – four on each side of the room.
  • A small gap separates each bookcase – adding to the distince modern look.
  • What else can you note? How about the suit-case coffee tables – gives the sense of both a library and travel explorer room. What comments can you share?

Converting a basement


  • Your basement area could easily become your personal library – with a decorative spiral staircase leading up the upper floor.
  • Part of this converstion could include a basement bedroom.
  • A perfect secluded room for you to enjoy a book next to a fire – and then off to bed when the hour is late.
  • How should you decorate the book shelves? How about using the stairs? Books that are stacked end-to-end and or layed upon each other. Suggest that you mix up the books with the decor items. What comments can you share?

Constructing a loft with staircase access


  • Perhaps you currently don’t have room for a personal library – so how about constructing a loft for our libary?
  • You can access with a staircase as illustrated or use a spiral staircase as an added decor piece
    VIEW TOPIC: spiral staircase kits
  • Of course that might be a major cost development just for a library – perhaps your loft could serve as you workdesk area.
  • Using house plants? Note how house plants add to the room decor – adds some green to the overall dark colors you find in the curtains, sofa, loft rail, and bookcases. See our topic on using house plants. What comments can you share?

Private library down under


  • One more image – this one with a converted basement into an intellectural home library.
  • You got to love the large studio light – both for illumination and decor.
  • Take a look at the floor? Mostly likely laminate or vinyl planks – very east to install and are perfect for basements that may be prone to moisture buildup. What comments can you share?
