10 Great Kid’s Room Bookshelves

Before my little boy was born I was very intent on one thing, that he would have a great library. I have fond memories of my mom reading out loud to me as a child and remember getting so excited every time we headed to the library. I want my son to hopefully experience something similar and that all starts with great books.

Well, his library has certainly grown and now the problem is storage. I’m gathering ideas of how best to keep them organized while they’re still easily accessible. Here are some storage ideas for children’s books that I absolutely love.

  • Happy Entrance

  • Books as Art

    Books as Art

    Instead of covering every square inch of the wall with framed art, colorful book covers can become the art in the room.

    This little wall space between the windows could have been awkward but by adding the shelves of books, it adds a lot of interest.

  • Child Height

    Child Height

    This shelf is probably a little more practical than some of the other ones since it’s at child height and the books are more contained.

    I like the library feel of this corner. A great place to curl up and enjoy those books on display.
