12 Creative Book Storage Ideas

Return To Blog

October 24, 2022


It sounds obvious, but book lovers tend to accumulate books. Once you own a book, it’s hard to part with it, even after you’ve read it. Over time, those books end up taking up a lot of space. On the other hand, books are beautiful. Creative book storage ideas help make efficient use of space in your home or storage space and potentially double as gorgeous decorative elements. Check out these 12 creative book storage ideas to get your design inspiration flowing.

1. Turn an unused fireplace into a book nook

Many of us have non-functioning fireplaces in our homes. If that’s you, that’s empty space that’s begging for some design love! Stack books in any way your creativity deems fit, whether a small, minimalist stack or filling that fireplace to the brim. Often this looks best with the page-side facing outward, rather than the books’ spines facing outward. It’s not the most practical book storage idea for finding books and getting them out, but it looks beautiful and screams “book lover” to your guests.

2. DIY a bookshelf bed baseboard

You can use any small bookshelf that’s roughly the height and width of your bed to serve as a stylish literary baseboard. This strategy stylishly uses the often-unused space directly at the foot of your bed, giving bookworms easy access to their reading material. For added convenience, you can use a shelf with integrated drawers to stow some clothes. 

3. Store books long-term in a self-storage unit

A lot of book lovers end up with self-storage units for many reasons. Perhaps you’re collecting and selling books and need a reliable place to store them before you ship them out. Maybe you simply want to set them aside to pass down to children or loved ones. Or perhaps you must set them aside temporarily during the moving process or for a longer time before you move into a larger place. Whatever your reason is, a self-storage unit is an excellent option for book storage. High-quality storage units like the ones BuxBear provides are much better than stowing books in an attic, basement, or garage. In a storage unit, books are less susceptible to damage from humidity and temperature changes and pests, dust, and sunlight. 

4. Cube shelves never go out of style

It’s easy to get creative with cube shelves, too. You can mix and match boxes’ contents, for example, storing books in some and other items in others to give the shelf some visual variety. One popular interior design trend is storing books of the same color in each cube, creating a beautiful look. After all, it’s always lovely when your storage can double as art. Many cube storage systems can also be configured however you like them so that you can detach and re-arrange the shelves at will.

5. Simple and effective plastic storage bins

Plastic storage bins get the job done for long-term storage of books, especially in a self-storage unit. They’re inexpensive, easy to find, and durable. Bins with lids can protect books from humidity, dust, and pests, preserving them for many years. When storing books in plastic containers, we recommend stacking them vertically, as if you were holding them on a shelf, and don’t stack books on top of one another. Avoid the temptation to fill a bin with books stored upright, then toss additional books on top of that “layer” horizontally—this can damage the spines of the books on the bottom. Instead, simply look for bins that are a little shallower. When plastic storage bins are full of books, they are usually heavy, so be careful stacking them. Not all plastic storage bins are created equally, and some can’t handle bearing much weight. Either buy extra-durable containers or store lighter loads on top of heavier loads. 

6. Build your very own closet library

Closet libraries are a clever home design hack that’s particularly popular for book-loving households where space is at a premium. The key to a gorgeous closet library is to use a door with a built-in window so the library shelves are visible from outside the closet. Not only does it look beautiful, but it creates the illusion of greater space. Trust us: Your house guests will rave about how much they love your closet library every time. 

7. Use ladder-style leaning shelves for a sleek, minimalist look

Ladder-style shelves are better for displaying small numbers of books than for heavy-duty storage of large collections. They instantly add a bit of style to any room, and you can use some levels for books and other levels for other items. Ladder shelves lean right up against the wall, making it easy to move around. 

8. Design a storage unit library

One of our favorite creative book storage ideas we’d like to see more of is customizing self-storage units to work as miniature libraries! You can take the closet library concept and extend it to a self-storage unit for a heavy-duty private book stash. Since storing books outside of your home is usually for long-term storage, not easy, immediate access, the goal here is practicality over stylish design. To that end, you can use heavy-duty garage shelving and fill as much vertical space from the ground level to the ceiling of the storage unit. This maximizes book storage space but also looks fantastic. When you need to pull books out of storage, you don’t have to dig through containers—you can browse the stacks, just like on a bookshelf at home. 

9. Plant a “tree bookshelf” 

We love the way tree bookshelves look, and you will, too. Smaller varieties can be placed on top of desks, dressers, or cabinets, but taller types that sit on the floor are available, too. As with cube shelves, people like to get creative with organizing books on tree shelves, like grouping books by color or topic.

10. Install floating shelves pretty much anywhere

No matter what your space looks like, chances are good that you’ve got some small unused nooks and crannies. The wonderful thing about floating shelves is that you can install them quickly and easily almost anywhere. Think outside the box, and take stock of where your home has various cubbies or small walls. Those places just might be perfect spots to install some floating shelves for books.

11. Use baskets for low-maintenance book storage

Wicker, wood, and rope baskets all look chic and natural, holding books beautifully. On the one hand, a few beloved books stacked in an attractive basket make an effortless decoration that can be easily moved and adjusted. On the other, baskets also make a practical and tidy book storage idea for children’s rooms since kids can easily access (and clean up!) their books without having to reach high on tall shelves. 

12. Put your bookshelves in the corner

It’s a wonder we don’t see corner shelves in homes more often. By their very nature, the corners of rooms usually comprise space that’s difficult to use. Corner shelves solve this problem by spicing up a room and utilizing space that would otherwise go to waste.

Book-lovers, get your space organized!

These creative book storage ideas are just the beginning, and hopefully, they will give you some ideas for how you can organize and beautify your own space. Book storage solutions can be both practical and stylish, and that’s the sort of design inspiration we love!

With the right arrangement and decoration, you can turn your reading nook into a distraction-free oasis where you can relax with your favorite author. Check these stylish book storage ideas.

A wooden bench is also a perfect solution for storing books. Place the wooden bench under the large artwork and stack your books horizontally by title or by the length of the books. Put the longest at the bottom and the shortest at the top. Complement it all with decorative items and place an oversized houseplant to complete the look.

8. Transform your hallway into a library

Hallways are not only for storing shoes, but also books. Turn your hallway into your walk-in library. This way, your hallway will look like an extension of your living room. Along with a painting or a print, you can also make the opposite wall your photo gallery.

9. Build a bookshelf wall around a doorway

Bookshelves around the entrance create a cool focal point and turn any room into a small library. If you use shelves in a color that is different from the color of your wall, the door frame becomes eye-catching and gives it its own identity.

10. Play with shape

Give your book storage a modern twist. Do not opt for standard shelves, but instead choose different sizes of display cases to hang on the wall at different heights. Combine the design and make sure that the items inside the box are clean and simple to keep the impression of freshness.

11. Use basket as book storage

Using wire baskets as storage is not only practical, but also beautiful.

We often forget to make the most of the space in our kitchen. So if you are running out of space in your living room and bedroom, your kitchen is the right environment for your books. Books in your kitchen are a great way to add dimension to your kitchen or dining room. Stash your books on your open kitchen shelving or display them on your kitchen island so you can quickly have your best cooking recipes at your fingertips.

13. Refurbished your old furniture

If your budget is tight or you have limited space, get creative by using the furniture you already have. A repainted bookshelf or a makeshift end table can be a cool, unexpected place to store your books while making it easy to get to your current reading.

14. Add plants

Placing indoor plants on top of your books is an easy trick to style your book stacks. Choose your favorite small indoor potted plants or place a vase of fresh-cut flowers on top of your book stack. Complete the look with a larger floor plant on the sides to add dimension and symmetry.

15. Be creative

Think about how you can incorporate your personal style, taste, and personality into your book storage. You can order your books in color to make your room more interesting. Mix sizes, colors, and textures to add impact.


There are many cool and creative ways to store your books. Try to take advantage of every possible corner on the wall and floor that you have. I hope you get inspired and found something you like.

How to store books correctly


When e-books were just starting to come into use, most people were sure that they would quickly replace paper publications. Later, audiobooks joined the electronic editions. However, printed editions still continue to be in demand, although they take up a lot of space. The library needs not only a place of storage, but also the observance of the conditions for this very storage. Having been carried away by gadgets for some time, modern housewives have to remember how to properly store books at home so that they do not gather dust, how to protect them from damage, and how to find an extra corner in a small apartment where one could put some volumes.

Common causes of book damage and simple remedies

Books seem to deteriorate from everything – cold and heat, humidity and dryness, and it’s easier to put them in a vacuum to keep them in usable condition. However, this is not entirely fair and there are only a few serious causes of damage.


If you want the books in your home to look presentable, you need to carefully monitor the level of humidity, at least in the room where you have a library.

If the humidity is too high, the pages will fade and warp. The worst thing that can happen is the appearance of mold, for which moisture is the best environment.

Insufficient humidity in the bookroom is just as detrimental. The sheets become dry and brittle, cracks appear on the covers. Thus, the absence of batteries and other heating devices near the shelves is one of the primary conditions for the safety of paper publications.

Purchasing a humidifier can help you maintain the desired humidity in the room without disturbing the balance. The temperature in the library should be no higher than 18–22 degrees, the humidity should vary between 60–65%.


Dust is dangerous for both humans and books. Bacteria and mold spores that are part of the dust cause allergies in people. Books take on a brown tint, paper becomes brittle. To avoid a large accumulation of dust deposits, at least once a week you need to carry out wet cleaning, and also place the library on glass-covered shelves and use covers.

Direct sunlight

Strong sun makes books faded and dull. If exposed to direct sunlight for too long, books may even begin to warp.

Take a cue from libraries, where bookshelves are never placed close to a source of natural light, and bookstores try to block the sun’s rays from bookshelves by darkening windows and using soft artificial lighting.

In other words, the room where you store books should be darkened, and the windows in it should not let in bright sunlight, then your collection will not grow old ahead of time.

Too close spacing

When there are too many books in the house and their stacks are found everywhere, housewives, putting things in order in the apartment, try to pack the shelves more tightly with them. This cannot be done, since tightness is harmful for printed publications – the page is wrinkled, scuffs and scratches appear on the surface, and their number multiplies with each attempt to “squeeze” the book into place. There can be only one solution here – to reconsider the arrangement and allocate more space for the library, find ways to properly store books that do not fit on the shelves in some other way.


Got a pet? Get ready to protect your library. Kittens and puppies are ready to gnaw or scratch covers with rapture, or do their important things not at all in the tray, especially if they have not yet fully understood its purpose. So when a pet appears in the family, you need to take care of the closed storage of books, and it’s better to hang the shelves higher so that your four-legged friend can’t get close to them.


Due to the accumulation of dust, pests often settle in books – book louse. The owner himself can bring it into the house, taking a book from the library or visiting the archive. This small insect does not threaten human health, you can not be afraid of this, but nibbling the bindings of books in an attempt to get to the remnants of glue is quite. The best prevention is regular cleaning and ventilation.

Careless handling of books

In fairness, it should be noted that sometimes a person is no less to blame for spoiling books. Fans of turning pages strive to bring the book into the kitchen to eat, not looking up from the exciting story. Or, for example, leave it anywhere, and even open it with the cover up. And it’s also very nice to take a bath in the company of your favorite characters. Books, on the other hand, acquire picturesque decorations in the form of stains from spilled tea or coffee, greasy fingerprints and pages warped from moisture.

Preparing for storage at home: useful tips

Prevention is always easier than cure. This rule applies to books as well.

  1. Make sure that books are sent to the shelf not just like that, but after some preparation. Listen to the advice of experts and try to properly prepare them for storage;
  2. Before placing the publication on a shelf or rack, make sure that there is no dust, dirt or mold;
  3. Put the cover on the book;
  4. Come up with your system of sorting and arranging publications. So it will be easier for you to immediately find the right book, and your book collection will look more impressive and aesthetically pleasing.

Remember that even high-quality materials will not withstand rough handling for long. And those books that are monitored and looked after can be stored for a very long time.

How to organize the storage of books in an apartment, even if there is little space

If there is very little space in the apartment and it is impossible to allocate a separate closet for literature, then the issue of organizing alternative ways and places for storing them becomes very relevant. If there are not very many books, then one additional shelf or box may be enough, especially since in modern stores such products can be presented in a variety of interesting design solutions – wicker boxes or fabric-covered boxes, etc. If the library is growing and growing, then it will not be possible to manage with small funds. We will have to decide where and how best to store books, textbooks and periodicals.

Whichever method you choose, remember that each edition must be wrapped in paper when packing.


Regular bookshelves are a great idea. They are convenient and inexpensive, but the lack of closing doors spoils everything. Standing on their publications will often have to be wiped from dust.


A classic, almost perfect solution that answers the question of how to store books at home so they don’t get dusty. But there is a significant minus – very bulky. Sometimes there is simply nowhere to put it.

Shelving units

Shelving units are spacious and available in various shapes and sizes, making them easier to fit into the layout of almost any room. And again, the disadvantage will be its openness and the need for frequent cleaning.

Hanging Shelves

If you’re lucky enough to have a high-ceilinged home, hanging shelves in nooks and crannies are the perfect solution to your book storage problem. You can even make several rows of them, visually similar to a rack. But because of the same high ceilings, when purchasing hanging shelves, you will also have to think about a stepladder, since the height of a stool or chair may not be enough to be able to comfortably and without the risk of falling to be able to get the right edition.

Special library chair

A rather unusual solution to the problem of an abundance of books can be special library chairs, the walls of which are made in the form of bookshelves from the outside. Such a piece of furniture looks very original, but due to the openness of the shelves, books often have to be dusted.

Miscellaneous Organizers

If you have favorite titles that you re-read regularly, then a book organizer might be the perfect place to store them. Mobility and compactness are its main advantages. In this capacity, you can use small boxes, coasters or baskets.

Bed with shelves and drawers – a solution for a small apartment

Now you can find almost any bed model in stores. If you can’t find what you need, it can be made to order. So, in order to competently and rationally use the under-bed space, you can place bookshelves or drawers in it, where it is quite possible to store part of your library. Drawers will even be preferable, especially if there are small children or pets in the house.

Wall niches

Shallow niches in the wall can be used to store books. It can even become a good design solution and serve as an interesting accent in the interior of a living room or office. If desired, such a niche can be made with your own hands using drywall. However, it will still take up some space in the apartment.

Is it possible to store books on the windowsill

This way of storing books is possible only if you can somehow darken the window. Otherwise, books standing on the windowsill will quickly begin to deteriorate due to sunlight and temperature changes.

Place under the window sill

A rather non-standard place for storing books will be the space under the windowsill. On the one hand, an additional place has been found, and on the other hand, is it so good? The external walls of the house are still more susceptible to temperature changes, and the dust will have to be wiped in the same way as on any other open shelves.

How and where to store old books

But if we are talking about old documents and rare antique publications, then their safety must be treated with special responsibility, otherwise restoration cannot be avoided. Here you need not only to observe special storage conditions, but also to find a safe place – a safe or a special cache.

Where to store children’s books

Little children just love to draw, and not in the albums. With great pleasure, they will color the pages of the book and add brightness to the fabulous illustrations. And here a lot depends on the parents: what is more important – to keep the book or to give the child the opportunity to express themselves.

In any case, while the child is still very young, it is worth putting children’s books higher up, because it is quite possible to cut yourself with book pages. When the child grows up a little, still arrange the books so that it is convenient for him to reach them if he wants to.

Is it possible to store books on the balcony and how to do it correctly

It is possible to leave books on the balcony only if there are simply no other options. In this case, the books need to be well packaged using cloth, strong bags and bubble wrap – this way you can protect the books from the harmful effects of the environment as much as possible.

As soon as it becomes possible to place the books in a more suitable place – do it, because even the most careful packaging is unlikely to protect them from condensation and excessive moisture for a long time.

How to store books in an unheated room

Storing books in an unheated room is just as undesirable as on a balcony.

How to Store Books in the Garage

Books must be carefully packaged before they can be stored in the garage – at least three layers of airtight film for each volume and loosely stowed in a cardboard box. In this case, it is better to place a container with books on a shelf or table, but in no case on the floor, where it is usually quite damp in such rooms, especially if the garage is not heated. Yes, and from the visits of rodents, no one is guaranteed.

Is it possible to store books in the country house

When storing books in the country house, you should follow the same packing and placement procedures as in the garage. If no one appears at the dacha during the winter months, then the visits of rodents here are even more likely.

Storage of books in a warehouse

Storage in a warehouse is one of the best ways to save a library. Warehouse workers know exactly all the rules for storing books, monitor the temperature and humidity levels, and protect publications from dust and pests. This method is also suitable for storing valuable publications, since video surveillance systems are always working in the warehouse and security guards are on duty.

Books love proper care and handling

The basic rules for careful book handling are as follows:

  • turning pages carefully;
  • does not need to bend and wrinkle the pages;
  • do not read while eating or in the bathroom;
  • book not stand;
  • use bookmarks and covers.

Cover your books

Modern books are often sold already with covers. However, this does not always happen. If there is no cover on the book, then you need to purchase it, so you protect the book from dust and mechanical damage.

Use bookmarks

When you mark where you left off in a book, you don’t need to use handy tools such as pencils, erasers, etc.
