Discover your library-style by tapping on the right method of sorting.
1. Bookstore-style Home Library Design:
The primary focus in Bookstore style is to arrange books alphabetically or according to the author's name, as and how you desire.
You can arrange books while maintaining a theme. It is a fun-filled activity and shows a reader's, creative bent of mind. For example, cookbooks can be grouped as non-vegetarian delights, vegetarian recipes, desserts, cocktails, regional specialties and the like.
3. Rainbow-themed Home Library Design:
Following the Rainbow order of book sorting is a more conventional idea and works best for those houses where interior design is visually enriching. You do not have to stick to specific colors for the arrangement, but can set books, maintaining its shades, depending solely on the color of your bookshelf and the room. Each and every shelf leaves a huge impact.
Take Care of Over-sized Tomes in Your Home Library
If you have an extensive book collection, you can arrange them by keeping smaller books at the top and the larger, 'heavy-weight' ones at the bottom.
Place books vertically or on vertical shelves to make maximum use of available space. Shelves should have a counterweight at the bottom to prevent tipping.
Swap Books to Spark New Interests
Once done with all the arrangements, interchange the old books with the recently bought ones, to avoid monotony. Browse periodically through your piles of books; bring out those that interest you and place them around the house to bring them to your notice.
Get Inspired while Working
Working for long hours at a stretch can be stressful. Just flip out a book from your shelf and relax. In no time will you be rejuvenated; such is the magic of a book. Keep your cozy home library diversified, to soothe your active gray cells.
