Go up the wallsYour walls aren’t just for displaying artwork. Take a look around your home to see if there are any wall surfaces that you can transform into shelves or a cupboard. Here, the homeowners have lined their staircase wall with shelving to accommodate books. By putting redundant areas like this to good use, you will free up space elsewhere throughout your home.

Shelve itThe wall beside the stairs is a popular spot for displaying family photographs, but this is also a great area for inset bookshelves. Make sure they’re sorted so they’re easily accessible – kids’ books at the bottom, reference and new tomes in the middle and read-but-not-forgotten novels at the top.

Store stuff in the short termIf you really can’t bear to part with certain items, put them into a storage facility. Perhaps decide to keep them stored for six months and, after that, if you haven’t needed or missed them, it’s time to let them go. If you are the caretaker of items that aren’t yours – your children’s study notes or favourite childhood books, say – ask them to look after those pieces or at least help you sort through and dispose of them.

Utilise the hall wallIf space is at a premium, building book storage into otherwise dead space is a neat idea. This unit exploits the tall wall leading up the stairs, as well as the top of it on the landing, housing hundreds of books in an unused area.

Go up the walls - see stairs also... Your walls aren’t just for displaying artwork.

Instead of banisters on the landing, build bookshelves. books could be accessed from stairs, as pic, or from landing. However - might block light.

For the stair well area going up stairs - room for built in shelves?
