I am a BIG collector of books. Not only do I love to read, but I love the aesthetic of books on a shelf. Some people find it too disorganized looking, especially people who love design minimalism, but personally, I think a packed shelf full of well-worn hardcovers and paperbacks gives a home a loved and lived-in feel. There was a time when my apartment was filled with Ikea bookshelves, which for a college student, offer a great solution to storage needs of all kinds.
But as my tastes matured, I found myself wanting to display my 20 years of book collecting in a way that fit my house perfectly, so I spent months searching online, in stores and at estate sales to find the perfect bookcase.
That search was the inspiration for this post! I wanted to scope out a bunch of great book storage solutions that covered all the bases in terms of space, size and number of books, so please take a look at the collection of bookshelf ideas I’ve found!
