9 Home Decorating Tips for Bookworms

Do you own so many books that you’re having to stack books on top of books all throughout your house? Are you tired of looking at your bookshelves wishing that you could arrange them a little differently? Well, look no further than our book decorating tips below!

If you own…


1. More Than 1,000 Books

Okay, so for this one, you’re either going to have to buy a huge house to fit all of your books or get rid of all your unnecessary furniture, odds and ends, and turn your house into your very own library. But hey, living in a library wouldn’t so bad, would it?

2. 500 Books

While 500 books is quite a lot, it’s a bit more reasonable than 1,000. Try getting some high quality bookshelves that take up an entire wall of one room and start filling them up with your books. Be sure to get yourself a ladder, so you’ll be able to reach those top shelves!

3. 300 Books

300 books is probably the average amount of books that most book lovers own and with this amount, it’s quite more reasonable to find space. You can easily choose one or two walls of a room for your bookshelves and, along with your books, you can add some bookish trinkets into the mix.

4. 200 Books

If you have a staircase in your home, you probably have a lot of unused space under the staircase, which is perfect for adding in some bookshelves to store all of your books. Not only does it look cool, but it can free up a lot of space in your home.

5. 100 Books

If you only own 100 books, why not turn your favorite reading chair into a place to store your books? Bookshelf chairs are like killing two birds with one stone: you have some furniture and a place for your books all in one. Plus, if you finish one book, you can easily grab a new one without having to get up!

6. 50 Books

There are plenty of unique bookshelves out there, however, many of them aren’t big enough to store many books. So, if you own a small number of books, then definitely look into all the cool bookshelves like this tree one below!

7. 10 Books

With only 10 books, you’re probably going for a more aesthetically pleasing look with your books rather than a storage method. Floating bookshelves are a great choice because you can easily organize your books, while also filling up some empty spaces on your walls!

8. 3 Books

If you only own three books, you really need to make an emergency trip to a nearby bookstore ASAP! As far as a tip for decorating, these books can go anywhere easily. Do you have a small plant in the window? You could place the vase on top of your small stack of books. Or you could use the books as a centerpiece for a coffee table.

9. 1 Book

Okay, if you only have one book, I feel bad for you because you’re missing out on the amazing feeling it is to be a book lover and have your very own collection of books. But, if you must only own one book or you’re just not convinced that you need tons of books lying around, you can literally place this one book anywhere and it would look great. However, you could just pick up the book and read it instead of having it collect dust on a nearby coffee table.
