8 Creative Ways To Display Your Books Beyond A Typical Bookcase

I have plenty of bookshelves decked out in reading list essentials. However, sometimes I get the urge to change up my décor. Reading Bibliostyle inspired me to look at my books differently. They can easily become part of your home décor.

Restore A Fireplace


If you have a nonworking fireplace, a super-chic way to repurpose the area is by using it as book storage. Be sure to clean the area first.

Decorate Your Kitchen


Let the recipes flow by decking out your beloved kitchen with the best recipes and literature.

Old Is New Again


Chances are you probably have a large old children’s toy hanging around. Transform it into an adorable storage container for themed books.

A Zen Display


Line up your books against a wall and use a wooden slab to create a makeshift display table. It’s a perfect place to store crystals or plants.

Create Borders


If you’re in a studio, or have a home with a lot of open space, you can carefully use your massive book collection to help you designate areas and create borders.

Take Up Some Space


If you have a home with stairs, chances are you have no idea what to do with the extra space above the stairs. Make it an area full of art and books!

Playful Stacking


When in doubt, creatively stack your books against a wall and use them to help you display your best trinkets or small plants.

Accompany Your Beauty Regimen


This is possibly my favorite display! Take your prettiest books and line your desk or vanity with a few inspirational reads.
