BookshelvesAs the nights draw in, thoughts turn to cosy interiors and snug evenings reading by the fire. And it seems Houzz users are celebrating all things literary this autumn, with ‘book’- and ‘library’-based search terms all starting to rise considerably. Searches for ‘bookshelves’ have risen 55% since June; searches for ‘bookcases’ have increased 33% since March, and even the phrase ‘library’ has seen a surge in interest, up 36% since March. How are we stashing our paperbacks? The most searched-for types of bookcase on Houzz are ‘floating’, ‘built-in’ and ‘ladder’.

Live largeDevote an entire wall to your music and movie collections to provide a one-stop shop for all your media. Every title is on display for browsing, which is ideal for those who love to see all their favourites in one sweep of the eye. The shelving system here is a smart option as it allows you to create smaller and larger sections for different objects. By having a system like this you can also think about categorising into themed sections. For example, you could put all your action films together or dedicate a shelf to classical CDs.

Maximise slim alcovesThe clever choice of storage in this slim alcove ensures no space has gone to waste in this living room. It would have been tricky to install full-height cupboards in such a shallow spot, so a single run of closed units has been built at floor level, slightly extending out into the room, while the rest of the wall is covered with slim shelving for displaying smaller items. Now everything from books and ornaments to living room paraphernalia and even logs for the fire has a spot in this one shallow area.
