Float the ideaHigh up shelving is a popular design idea on Houzz and employing it above a bed can make for storage that appears to float. Because the shelf here butts up to the ceiling, it doesn’t appear to protrude from the wall in the way that a shelf lower down would. Designing the unit around the books is another sharp touch incorporated by Norton Ellis Architects in this central London flat. It means there’s little wasted space, allowing the books to be packed in tightly, forming a colourful yet tidy strip across the wall. The final touch is simply painting the joinery to blend in with the wall – squint and you could be tricked into seeing a niche, not a shelf.

Include some good readsIf your guests are staying for a few days, give them space to relax and recharge. Make them feel at home in their room by putting out some books or magazines.Leave a pile near the bed or armchair, or set up a bookshelf, as the homeowners have done in this bedroom.

A bookshelfBedroom book nooks are the place for about-to-reads, favourites to which you’ll always return, or (whisper it) the volumes you’re not willing to loan out. Even a small bedroom can accommodate one if you opt for over-the-bed shelving like this, which won’t impinge on the floor area. (Over the door is another good use of dead space.)Alternatively, built-in shelving along one side of the room can work in bigger spaces, while a display opposite the end of the bed makes for a pleasing view when you’re tucked up.Shelving ideas to satisfy your inner book nerd
