Small home library ideas

Here are some of the easiest small home library ideas for you to create a gorgeous reading corner:

1. Go for a bookshelf online with open cubbies for your home library

The easiest way to identify a reader is to hear them describe their imagination. If you are one of them, go for a design that stretches its imagination as well. 

A bookshelf online with the ideal storage space and open cubbies works as the perfect doorway to your imaginary world where dragons fly and wizards with a scar prevail over evil.  

Wakefits’ Burns Bookshelf, for instance, has open cubbies that allow you to feature your favorite books for your friends to appreciate in your home library. 

You can also use the cubbies to display other memorabilia or any other prized possessions. You can also save some space for your indoor potted plants and add a little green to the home library. 

2. Get a bookshelf with a quirky design for the home library nook 

One of our favourite small home library ideas is to use an out-of-the-box bookshelf design to store storybooks. 

Wakefit’s Ladder Bookshelf, for example, lets you tell a story through your storybooks. You can display your classics and your modern mysteries on this gorgeous looking yet functional bookshelf. Also, it looks stunning in any home library so you have nothing to worry about.

3. Bring home a bookshelf for your home library that is easy to maintain 

When buying a good bookshelf online for your home library, make sure that it is easy to clean. 

Our living room bookshelf range can be easily wiped with a clean piece of dry cloth. 

Also make sure that the bookshelf is ergonomic, meaning it should not be wobbly and its compartments should not be of the wrong height. 

The ergonomic bookshelf online for your home library should be designed in such a way that it can store heavier editions at the bottom and lighter reads on top. 

The other thing to keep in mind is to pick a bookshelf for living room that is treated for warps and comes with a good manufacturer warranty. You don’t want a faulty bookshelf for your home library.
