A look inside: House with a Library
When you look at the most successful people in the world, how do you think they got there? Motivation? Sure. Hard work? Definitely. Luck? Plenty. However, most hyper-successful people attribute their success to one great habit: reading. Think that sounds far-fetched? Elon Musk has said that he learned how to build rockets by reading books. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg started his own book club in 2015 to challenge himself and others to read a book every two weeks.
“Read 500 pages…every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.” — Warren Buffett
Ever wondered why books are so important?
Reading books make you smarter. Books allow you to fully explore a topic and immerse yourself in a deeper way than most media today. Books are our never failing friends. Our worldly companions might desert us but they never desolate us. It’s well said, “You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy books and that’s kind of the same thing”. The more you read, the richer you are inside. Nowadays, students spend long stretches clicking away on laptops during all night study sessions. In old times, we used to fall asleep being draped over books.
But it is amazed to see, even now in an ever-evolving digital age, we still treasure our books and the physical library space. Love for books has made people build extra room in their homes where they can put and save their books. Some also transform them into their wonderful work spaces. Whether your home is traditional, modern or somewhere in between, we have got the ultimate curation look with better experience for you.
Now that you have an idea of what you need, check out these stunning home library ideas for inspiration. Go with the flow and you will be in ease while creating your own house-library.
Focus on your display:
If you’re an avid reader, you’ve likely spent a lot of time storing your books in less-than-ideal conditions. Now that you’ve committed to designing your very own library, it’s time to proudly put your books on display. Pick the best location in your home for this project. A smaller reading nook can also be carved out from previously unused space in a master bedroom or loft area.
Floor to ceiling shelving is a traditional choice. Transform your space into home-library being more creative and sprucing up some modern & contemporary furniture. Search out some design inspiration from IDUS Furniture like revolving & designer bookshelves that saves your space too.
Spot your seating with perfection:
It’s very important to pick the right seating arrangement. Reading becomes more joyful when you feel cozy & comfortable while reading. After all, seating is the most important part of a home library. There is no hard-and-fast rule. Accommodate a single arm chair with high back, a recliner with footrest or you may also place a long seating but just take care of the ease and the comfort. Your house-library should have a welcoming appeal.

Create a lighting story:
Having adequate amount of lighting in every room of your house is necessary, and so in your library. It is one of the most crucial things for your home library. If you want your home-library function well, providing a proper lighting scheme throughout the room is really important.
Choosing right type of light is extremely of notice. Make sure to have one directly above or beside each spot in your seating area. Then, provide the right light temperature. Day bulbs, floor lamps & designer lamp shades are the best choice for reading, so you may want to invest in a few of those.
Make it cozy:
Last but not the least, the next most important component that plays a vital role is its coziness. It should be a place where you wish to curl up your maximum hours. Libraries are intimate space that brings the outward grandeur inside creating a whole new zone within a room.
Using throw pillows, plush & colorful seating will add more grace to your comfort & seating ambience. Remember, personalizing your space will make the place more cozy.
