20 Cool Home Library Design Ideas

Starting from Roman Empire home library was a thing that every respected man should have even if he couldn’t read. Nowadays many more people can read and libraries are parts of many homes. It’s hard to say from how many books the library starts and almost everybody own at least some of them. When you own several hunders or even thousands books you definitely need a room for them. Here are some ideas of how you can organize a cool and practical home library at your home.

  5. Kasandria Reasoner Says:

  6. drivingmenuts Says:

    wow!! i wish i had a library in my house, although i suspect that if i had one, my books will never fill up that much space.

  7. Justice Says:

    Every home deserves a library.

  8. bobkat Says:

    You can get that many books on a kindle, and hang pictures up instead

  9. Mike Says:

    It’s true but some people still have large collection of books from the past.

  10. eneida Says:

    Wanderful! Thise is one of my dreems. Some day i”ll get there..

  11. Nick Says:

    yeah, those rooms are so much better than an ipad c’mon people get with it

  12. Swapna Says:

    Loved the ideas particularly because I do have a home library and am thinking of how to pep it up a bit.

  13. Definitelybeauty Says:

    These are all really cool but I love the second one of the old style library.

  14. Aksu Vital Says:

    As a book lover I like Library on 8th pic .

  15. Tito Says:

    i had my own ideas for a study room but these ideas where just as great

  16. John D. Miller Says:

    I must be dreaming!

  17. jimi Says:

    Love these, i wish i can have them all

  18. Douglas Lodmell Says:

    These photographs are absolutely beautiful. If only there was enough time in the day to read all of those books. With the rise of devices such as the kindle and ereaders, I suspect book collections are dwindling. I read an article a few weeks ago where a University has a library that holds thousands of books, but are only accesible through kindles and ereaders. While I think that ereaders are great, you can’t stack them on a shelf, nor would they look as aesthetically pleasing.

  19. Alex Says:

    Very nice, but some of them across as too serious. A libary should be a happy and fun place in my opinion.

  20. Annie Says:

    Really very beautiful. Good work

  21. Amanda Says:

    Love the pictures but I had an OCD twitch when I read “much more people can read.” It should be many more, not much more. It is a nice collection and I would love to have a home library.

  22. Forman Says:

    Kindles, ipads, ereaders are all fine but at the drop of a hat the information on them can be wiped off. By natural disaster or by someone with the power to do so. Books, unless you burn them, are there in your hand with all their information. Musty and beautiful. I don’t chose to risk loosing my information. That and The way they look on a shelf, how do you beat that?

  23. Kafae Says:

    Really perfect
    It’s a good relax place for plesure time.

  24. KStreet Says:

    These are amazing, I love the color coordinated ones.

  25. Derek Says:

    My dream, one day have a library, in the range of those shown above. I would then proceed to stoch it with edions of my favourite authors, starting with Jeffery Archer, most of his books I would read two or three times. Non fiction would be biography’s and Auto biography’s of famous people, particularly of football(Soccer) players like Lional Messi or Pele. I would start with a biography Of Ted Bates of Southampton F C , I think it is called rough Diaamond.

  26. Sarah Says:

    No matter what extensive developments there are in ‘kindle’ and other electronic book technologies – nothing will really compare to the experience, appearance and meaning of having a collection of important hardback or paperback books on a wall.
    Really enjoyed these – got some great ideas from them!

  27. psychophant69 Says:

    Let’s see an e-reader do that!

  28. Ryan Mk Says:

  36. patt-cent Says:

    air of mystery ;)

  37. messaoudi zoubeir Says:

    c’est une bonne idée merçi beaucoup

  38. P.R. Bain Says:

    Call me picky, but if you are doing the write-up for a page about libraries, shouldn’t there be a pause for proofreading? Especially if it is about libraries? Stopped counting spelling and grammar errors at 10 and just looked at the pictures (trying hard to forget about the mistakes I missed). What a shame!
    Other than that, there are some great ideas here! I have many, many books and very little room, so will get my imagination in gear and have a crack at making my well-covered friends feel more at home! Thanks for these pictures…well done!

  39. Homemint Says:

    Libraries are definitely a must in the home! Great list @Shelterness!
