Creative Ways to Organize Books

We all have those piles of books that we have no idea what to do with. Will I ever read them? Do you I need to buy a bookshelf to store them all? Which room should I put them in? Here are some images that should inspire you to take your books from boring to a decorating tool for any space.

We see (above) that the homeowner has stacked the books in both spine and pages facing outwards. It’s a cool, creative way to use your books to decorate a space.

Create a fun look with your books by displaying them in stacks, side by side and pages facing outwards. It’s important  to randomly display each look to give a more cohesive vibe. And you can use ceramics and other decorative items to break up the books.

If you have a large collection of magazines, like me, stack them beside your bed so that you always have them to read. And it’s a modern approach to displaying your magazines.

I am all for displaying books with the pages facing outwards. It keeps things neutral and clean. And if you’re worried about not being able to find your favorite book, keep those books somewhere else that is accessible for you!
