Are intending to make a library at your house? It’s a great idea and I really approve it. Having a library at home can create an opportunity to encourage learning. Home library can also be filled with multitask feature such as reading place, home office and entertainment room.
Why entertainment room? Library at home should not be limited by what you saw at your local library. Instead you can widen the description by adding a new feature.
Library At Home
Take a general estimation on how much space you will need for your book collection. Remember, you do not need to display all book. Choose carefully, display book that you will often read. You can store the rest in your attic or if you have extra space in your library later, you can install a closed cabinet or drawer to store it.
The room you will be used for your library at home must have enough space to hold your books and extra space to store more if you still planning adding more to your book collection. The place must have a good lighting distribution, but be careful because extra sunlight might ruin the book.
Choose tall cabinet that reach your ceiling to maximize storage space. This is important if you have a small room as your library. You must use every possible space in the room to do it, even the small space above the door and below the ceiling.
But you must not disturb the traffic flow. Put a comfortable sofa or chair for reading. If you want to use it as an office, install a desk set complete with the chairs.
