Are you a bit of bookworm but happen to also be somewhat disorganised? If your bookcase is looking like the Jenga of books, it’s time to look at some organisational systems. Show your books some love by taking a look at some of our ideas.
I can see a rainbow
If you have a colourful collection of books, the bookcase can look quite chaotic. Why not make a statement and group your books together by colour? It looks really pretty and creates a beautiful focal point for the room.
Size them up
Order your books by height to balance out the bookcase. Messy shelves are a thing of the past when your books are arranged in the shape of a wave. Put the biggest books in the middle of the shelf and place books in descending order by height on either side.
Invest in a great bookcase
Having the prefect bookcase for your home can help you keep it more organised. Looking for residential shelving Ireland? Visit rackzone.ie/shelving/industrial-residential-shelving for reliable bookcases that will hold all your favourite page-turners.
Highlight your favourites
If you have favourite books, make them stand out. Turn the spines around of the ones you love most and put the spines facing the back for those you don’t read as often. This is a great way to find your favourite books quickly.
Take inspiration from the library
Libraries are the perfect example of books that are organised, so why not make your collection look like a library? It’s actually a very popular way of sorting the shelves. The benefit of doing this is that you can find any book very easily without having to look through every single title.
Be genre specific
A great way to find a book that suits the mood you’re in is to organise the bookcase by genres. Separate fiction from non-fiction and romance from the more serious topics. Then you can decide whether you want to read up on the latest scientific discoveries or stay up all night with a gripping thriller.
Show your books some love by organising your bookcase, then sit down with a cup of tea and your favourite page-turner for your efforts! Proudly display your full collection using these great organisational tips.
