Hi all

Just wondering if anyone has any great links or tips on designing a home library.

We have a formal lounge we never use and I was thinking of putting shleving on two walls and making it a reading room with some lounges, table and lamp. It would at least get used that way!!!

I've tried googling for ideas but really not coming up with a lot of ideas unfortunately.

winterpaws,
Check out http://www.librarything.com/groups/bookcasesifyoubuild , they love playing with shelving and storing, maybe you'll find some ideas there.

winterpaws - if you have access to the Sydney Morning Herald Domain section of last weekend, there is a beautiful idea for an elevated library on page 19A. They have the library on a mezzanine level and I would love to use that idea if my ceilings were high enough. Unfortunately they are not so I have four shelves built into the wall on either side of my loungeroom facing the entry door...

Windows and light will also influence the design.. good luck..
