If you have the luxury of devoting an entire room to books, do it. Floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves provide storage and display space. Dark shelving allows the leather-bound collection to become the room's focal point.
Tip: Use wood blinds to protect books from harsh sunlight, which can cause fading and eventually deterioration.
Line the walls of one room with bookshelves. Now you'll have space for your books and space to move around. The bookshelves can also serve double duty by disguising other features in the room. The door to the powder room is lined with bookshelves to help it blend into the room.
Stack thick books and use them as a bedside table. Consider making book wraps with paper and marking with labels for a unified, clean finish.
If you're an avid cook, keep your favorite cookbooks out and easily accessible. Store them on a rolling cart that you can effortlessly wheel around your kitchen.
Mix and match milk and fruit crates, fill with books, and stack three or four units high for a shabby chic bookcase.
