The vast collection of books that you have at home should be arranged perfectly. Don’t let them ruin the house. The scattered books on the floor, sofa and table may spoil the beauty of the living room. Whether you have traditional, modern, or English cottage living room design, a bookshelf is always needed as part of the living room décor. It looks great for a book addict to create their own paradise of books on the new shelves. If you check the online market, there are five major types of bookshelves to get.
Wall Mounted Bookshelf

They will never consume a lot of floor space due to the mounted installation onto the wall. The bookshelves will never look boring if you also add family photo frames, teapots, a vase of flower or a table lamp on the shelves.
If you only have few collections of books at home, there is no need to install the big bookshelves. Pick a floating one for it consists of a single rack. You can put the lightweight books, comic or magazines on the rack. If you want to bring the memory of childhood in the living room, fill the rack with graphic novels, fairy tale books and comics.
If you are a book addict, you must have bunches of book collections at home. If you need a lot of space for displaying that book, it seems traditional wooden ladder bookshelves are the perfect options. They can be installed by leaning on the wall. The ladder one can be the focal point in the Victorian living room since it may occupy the entire focal wall.
If the bookshelves are only used as the accent inside a small living room plan, use the corner space to install the piece. You can purchase the corner bookshelves which will never bother other architectural elements in the living room. It can be set next to the electric fireplace.
