Beginner’s Guide to DIY Home Library Decoration

Setting up a home library might look like quite a challenge but it can be made simple with the right steps. The beginner has to keep in mind the major three aspects: the space, the shelving and the books.

As space goes you should keep in mind to evaluate correctly. Depending on the necessity you can transform an entire room to fit the library concept or you should use the available wall space you have. The library walls should be painted in light colors to make the most of the natural light.

The shelving is exactly the factor able to maximize the space. The shelves can be ordered to cover the entire surface from the floor to the ceiling.

Keep in mind that depending on how high you place them you may need a library ladder.

When you choose the light for the library room consider a lamp that will allow you to read the smallest text.

The light should fall on your shoulders so your eyes won’t get tired. The reading lamp must be stronger than the room light and it is a good idea to use the natural light for as long as possible.

However, keep in mind that the sustained light can do a lot of damage to the books and if you have precious books that would be in danger because of the common dust, it is a good idea to protect them with a glass window.
