Books bring color and character to any room, but finding ways to store and stylishly showcase a large collection of books can be a challenge. While living room bookshelf ideas need to be aesthetically-pleasing above all, they also need to accommodate room size, architectural details and volume of books too.

When considering bookshelf ideas the options available depend on budget and whether the bookshelf is to be a permanent fixture or a freestanding bookcase that can be moved should it be necessary. Incorporating a bespoke built-in living room bookshelf is an investment that will need more consideration and planning, but it can make a handsome and practical addition to any family living room.
