Built-in solutions are cool for modern homes because they save space and look stylish: even if you have enough space, why not get some more? They also give you the chance to create your very own design that suits your space, style and specific needs. So, let’s have a look at a few great examples of built-in bookshelves for living areas, study-rooms or foyers and corridors and many other spaces – you can build them in anywhere!
Customized built-in bookshelves can take up a whole wall area or an area recessed into the wall. They blend easily with the interior and architecture of any space and are easy to match with furniture of any style. If your bookshelves don’t match – just add necessary detailing like moulding or shiny touches and voila! Built-in bookcases are less heavy on the eye than traditional free-standing bookshelves, often less expensive and easier to maintain too. And if you are a DIY person, built-in bookshelves are easy to make, so you can give it a go and try yourself at home.
Build in your bookshelves into your corners, awkward nooks, walls and even railings to make a maximum of those spaces. Use your space dividers if any to incorporate more bookshelves there, too, so these space dividers will be much more functional this way. You can use contrasting backing or framing if you really want to highlight your bookshelves or use the same colours as the wall to keep them neutral. Get inspired!
