Continue reading to find out how to better organise and style your home library not just for added aesthetics but also to induce learning motivation within the comforts of your home.

Let’s dive right in!

Decide On a Theme


Before we get into the nitty-gritty, you need to decide what you want your home library to look like. It’s important to have a clear visual picture of your desired home library before you even start decorating. Do you want a Beauty and the Beast kind of library? Do you have enough space for it? What books do you have? Are you leaning more into the traditional Victorian-era style? Or looking to create a simple, practical library for daily reading? Be clear about what you want and come up with a mood board to guide you through the next steps.


Select The Right Bookshelves 

If you already have an existing home library, assess what are the things that need improvement. Is the space too crowded? Then perhaps, you don’t have enough shelves to cater all your books. If you want a cleaner contemporary look, select the shelves that can fit all your books while still leaving breathing space for décor. 




For shelves to not appear too crammed, it is important to leave enough space for visual coherence. Keep in mind that you’re decorating more than just stacking up books on a shelf. Accessorised with either sculpture, vases, artworks, and vintage decors like a typewriter, an antique lamp, or a globe. Make it look interesting and add visual dynamic through different decorations with varying shapes and sizes.


Add Organisation Kits/Storage Solutions


A home library is a functional space. Usually, it is closely connected to the children’s study area or a home office. And if not always, most of the time, these spaces can really get cluttered. Books, pencils, and papers everywhere. It’s a challenge to keep it organised and sleek all the time. This is where storage solutions can come in handy. Keep a rattan pen holder to avoid getting your pens lost in the clutter. Always have a set of these storage kits at bay to make decluttering and organising a less tedious task. These woven water hyacinth baskets are a great addition to add. It doubles as décor and adds a bit of warmth and coziness to the space.


Spruce It Up with Greeneries

Nothing can make a space come alive quite like the presence of plants. Plants are also the simplest and most cost-effective way of decorating a space. On top of that, plants purify the air it helps us to feel relaxed and less anxious. There are many ways to add plants. You can either opt for large greeneries on the floor or choose simpler ones like succulents and florals. This rustic woven lined green grass plant pot looks very chic to have in any space. The same with this rattan flower pot. You can use it as either a shelf or table accessory.


There you have it! It might seem like a challenging task to declutter and organise but once you’ve done it, it’s always worth it. Remember that you’re just one declutter away from your dream home library. And there’s no better time to start than now.
