1. Colour coordinated shelves
Colour-coordinated bookshelves have been around for some time, and some may say they're a little dated, but there's something incredibly satisfying about them.
2. Stacked vertical bookcase
Short on space? The stylish stacked bookcase is perfect for smaller homes and can be nestled into empty corners.
3. DIY box bookshelf
Old wooden wine boxes make a stylish bookcase when stacked together against a wall or tucked into a corner.
4. Armoire bookshelf
Think outside the box when it comes to storing and displaying books. An old armoire can be repurposed to showcase your favourite literary treasures.
5. Ceiling-to-floor bookcases
What bibliophile hasn't dreamed of a ceiling-to-floor bookcase complete with ladder to access those hard-to-reach shelves? It's the stuff dream libraries are made of.
6. Floating bookshelves
These floating bookshelves do double duty as a focal decorating point with knick-knacks displayed in between the books, and vintage suitcases stacked above and below, providing extra storage. Another perfect solution for small spaces.
7. Under-stair bookcase
Another clever way to make the most of your space - building bookshelves under - or beside a staircase. Don't be surprised if you get distracted and begin reading every time you go up or downstairs, however.
8. Home library + reading nook
A sunroom or small study can be easily converted into a dedicated home library, like this sweet room complete with cosy armchairs and French doors.
9. Bookcase as art installation
By mounting wooden boxes on angles and using different sizes, your humble bookshelf can be transformed into an artistic focal point.

This sweet bookshelf idea is perfect for a kid's bedroom, or for anyone who loves to bring a little bit of nature indoors.
