There is a lot to be said for a good book. A good book can teach you something, or can transport you to another world. A good book can keep you company when you are lonely, help you doze off on a sleepless night or completely change your mood. A good book can be an attractive decoration on a coffee table or can even be a paperweight on a breezy day. Unfortunately, sometimes, while our books are so busy multi-tasking they get scattered about and become something entirely new – disorganised! Organising your books can be a fun stroll down memory lane while you find some order and beauty in your home.
One of the lovely things about books is that they are all roughly the same shape and come in endless colours and sizes. This makes organising them supremely easy. No need to worry that they will roll off of a shelf or will clash with one another. Displaying your books neatly can add a touch of class to almost any room or space. Kitchens can house cookbooks, hallways can be lined with book shelves and even entryways can be lined with attractive shelving that will both keep your books safe and add a nice look to your space. Organising your books offers not only convenience to your collection but style to your home.
Once you know which room or rooms you would like your books in, you can begin deciding how you would like them organised. Whether you decide to go alphabetical by author, by size, by colour or by genre, the options are nearly endless when it comes to organising your books. Consider how many books you have and how many rooms you will have to organize them in. Look at your books and see if there are any groupings that naturally stick out to you; sometimes the books will recommend their own organisation system to you!
The best organization system is one that reflects your personality and needs. If you intend to store all of your books in one location, then using a clear, logical, intellectual method of organising your books may be your best bet. Since you will be looking at a much larger number of books, this will make it easier to find what you are wanting to read more quickly. If however you wish to disperse your books around your home, then the options are as broad as your own imagination. You can match the books to the room, by either function or appearance or just go with whatever moves you!
Choosing an appropriate storage for your books needn’t be a chore. There exist endless options to choose from. From traditional shelving units to modern innovative shoe storage units that provide combined storage for your books and shoes (a must-have if you have limited space) – whatever you choose, it is important that it suits your lifestyle and your exact needs.
