The library forms an important part of our life as this place is not just where you read books but also the one where you can enjoy some personal “me” time. From childhood to old age we are surrounded by many books and as important the good books and libraries are so is the interior of it. To make your solitude time more effective here is The Architecture Designs with some home library design ideas. Choose yours.
Let’s start with the basic, functional, and most commonly used design and layout of the library. This is the classic design and is still a big hit for the homeowners. This includes a wall-mounted bookshelf on all the walls filled with your favorite books and a study table in the middle of the room with a cozy and comfortable chair. The fireplace right beside the study table helps you keep warm in extreme weather conditions and helps you cuddle with your favorite book. One can go all white or rustic with this décor.
While the basic factors that need to be considered in the library are space, books, and shelves there is another factor that most people forget about is light. It is important to have proper natural lighting and if it is not possible to go for a larger light exactly falling on the desk to read even the smallest word. This modern library has a sleek all-white design with a couch adding a pop of color and a circular couch for a good read.
A minimalist library is a pure love especially when the décor is sleek and modern. This minimalist library with a small couch and a small round table in the otherwise simple room is going places. The simple wooden shelving on the side of the room covering a wall makes it much more organized and simple yet beautifully elegant.
We are in love with the storied library as they add a bit of drama to the room and also create the illusion of a home full of books and nothing else. This two-storied library with the wooden and rustic charm with simply mounted lightings and a couple of table lamps gives a completely royal look. The addition of recliners instead of simple chairs makes the seating more comfortable.
Make the maximum use of the small room by going with all-inclusive furniture. This includes adding a floor to ceiling shelving to the walls, a work table, shelving to showcase some pieces of art and a simple chandelier. Also, don’t forget to add a clean-lined ladder that takes you to the topmost shelves. This design is a contemporary take for the traditional design.
Give your library a quirky finish by adding some extra elements to it and going all dramatic with the look. This includes the addition of huge rug, artistic chairs, shelves that showcase something more in addition to the simple books, some indoor plants, dramatic lighting, and a lot more. This will help you make a statement with the library and that too without showing much effort.
Libraries that take you to the outdoors are the ones that melt your hearts. Having the home library that has some great elements in a classic fashion will make a huge difference. The small shelves that store literally too many things and open its transparent doors to the outside beauty are a great addition. This will provide a lot of natural light and also keeps you connected to the outdoors.
A little artistic touch can make your home library stand ahead and seem unique. This will also make the library and a reading area something more than a stake of books. Adding some artistic backdrop adds a personality to the place and also speaks a lot about you. In this library, the artwork is hung on the shelf and the small shelves contain some cute pieces that make everything the part of the same place.
Lastly, make it more rich and upper-class by designing the library in the antique style. This includes antiques in books, furniture, lightings, and seating. Also, this will be nothing less than the master room created by you that also tells a lot about your unique personality.
