This one’s for all the book lovers out there!

Who doesn’t love forgetting your worries, stresses and curling up with a good book?  Whether it’s romance, mystery, sci-fi or non-fiction you fancy, everyone deserves a comfortable place to retreat and indulge. Although many of us don’t have the luxury of a beautiful library in our home, we can still appreciate and dream of having one! Here are some of my favorite home libraries.

Having an entire extra room in your house to dedicate for a library is definitely a luxury that not many of us have, however we may be surpirsed to know that we have unutilized space in our homes that could be perfect for built-ins.

How about under the stairs? This is a great way to utilize “dead space”.

How about a cozy reading nook? These intimate spaces can be carved out in a guest room, under the stairs, underneath a window or any other odd niche you may have in your home that you are unsure of how to utilize. Here are a few examples that I would personally LOVE to have!!! The hardest part about creating this type of space is never wanting to leave.

At a minimum, if you’re a book lover, why not treat yourself to a dedicated reading chair in a quiet room? We all deserve a little time for ourselves these days. It’s can be as easy as finding a quiet corner, buying a comfy chair and accessorizing with an ottoman, small end table and a throw for those chilly days!
