I love flicking through housing magazines and seeing all the creative ways people can integrate bookshelves into their homes. Bookshelves are rarely used for just books nowadays as people now accommodate for photo frames, pretty boxes, fine china, clocks, artworks and anything else you may have lying around.
Some of my favourite ideas are when bookshelves are built into the structure of the rooms themselves - such as under the stairs or in the walls. They also work well as entertainment units or as a decorative centrepiece. Here a few of the ones I will definitely keep in mind for my future home!
