Bookworms are known to have a large collection of various novels around their home. To keep your collection from cluttering the rest of your home you will need to get creative with your book storage. Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO can help you with the process by providing you with the extra space you might need with one of our storage units. Below are some creative book storage ideas for you to try in your home.


Make Books part of the Décor

Incorporating your books onto your extra shelving or on your coffee table will add that extra personal touch your home needs. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your placement. Using books to display other decorations such as candles or trinkets upon a shelf can help on storage space and still give you a unique design.


For the Books you are Currently Reading

Keep the books you are currently reading close at hand. While some may prefer to lounge in their favorite chair or lie in bed with a good book, storing it close by is a must. Get creative with your bedroom book storage options. Rethink the décor of the foot of your bed. Adding a small bookshelf can store all of your favorite stories like a mini library. Adding shelving above your headboard is another option. If you prefer a more hidden and organized approach you can always add book storage under your bed.


Space Dividers

For those living in crammed quarters or studio apartments, space dividers are often needed to distinguish a bedroom from the living room. Using a book shelf to divide your space in a creative and modern way can help you do just that. This provides a place for your books to be on display as well as giving you the needed privacy in your small space.


Take Storage Vertical

Many of us just don’t have the square footage needed to store all of our wonderful belongings, including books. That is why you need to start thinking up. Take advantage of the height of your walls and ceilings by installing shelves. Shelves help you save on floor space and provide an abundance of storage for your valuables and books. This is an easy and productive way to have the books you love on display.


Convert your Closet

If you so happen to have an empty closet, books can easily fill up that empty space. Adding shelving might be a necessity but this allows for the storage of your books all in one place. This will also work as a concealed storing option for those who have children or don’t want their books on display all of the time.


Expand on Existing Storage

This is the time to use that extra dresser holding unneeded junk. By storing books within a dresser you can re-purpose the storage you already have and stay organized. This works especially well in children’s bedrooms because children’s books are often thin, allowing for more storage space in dresser drawers.
