Despite the coming of e-books, many of us still value the tactile experience of flipping through a paper book. These creative bookshelves, then, are the perfect places to store our collections of little literary treasures.
There’s nothing wrong with a heavy, old-school bookcase, but most of these bookshelves cater to modern sensibilities, using creative and diverse designs to become interior décor statements in their own right. If you know of any cool bookshelves or book cases that belong on this list, please add them.
It’s been said that a room without books is like a body without a soul. The only problem with having a lot of books is that they often tend to clutter up shelving units, coffee tables, empty spaces on the floor, and pretty much anything else with a flat surface. So unless you’ve got an enormous home or an entire room that you can dedicate to building your own library with walls and walls of bookshelves, the only other two options you have are to scrap the unwanted books, or get creative with storing them. Since I’m a bit of a book hoarder myself, I think the latter is the best option for creative bookshelves.
