The dream of having a home library is one that many of us harbor. Having a quite place of your own to read and relax with your books may be something that you have thought about for years. Of course, having a room that you can devote to a library might be a lot to ask. That’s why this idea is so divine.
Asking a spouse to allow you to have an entire room devoted to your love of literature might not be in the cards but relationships and home remodeling are all about compromise. You might even find that you don’t have enough books to fill a whole library anyhow. So, what about a library nook for starters? Is there a corner or a wall with a window where you could start your library nook or cubbie?
A nice double window where you could make a window seat or a corner that is underutilized might be the perfect spot for your home library. Look around the house and make a list of different spots that you wish to claim as your starter library. Sketch out plans for each of these locations before making a decision and discuss it with your partner. Get their input and thoughts on your plans.
Once you decide on a location for your new home library, measure the space and begin making plans for your remodeling project. Usually, a rough draft is required first and then deciding upon the height of shelves comes next. Keep in mind that you may wind up with some books that are taller than others. Of course, you might wish to make all your shelved the same height to maintain the uniform look of your library.
