The freezing season is the time of the year when we tend to spend more time inside the house, and most of the time we found ourselves engaged in reading some great books and drinking hot cups of tea. Beside family and friends, books can be great company as well. If you have them in abundance you probably find it hard to store them in the proper way. Having a home library is a great idea, but not all of you have an extra room in the house that can be a library. For this reason we decided to show you How To Have A Dining Room And A Library In One Place. The dining room can be easily turned into a library, so check out the ideas below and get ready to start remodeling because you are going to love all of the ideas! The space saving designs are great because they double the form and function of a single room, and give you the opportunity to enjoy both of them!

The combination of a dining room and a library is an amazing one, and it’s pretty easy to pull off. The book shelves make use of the unused space in the dining area and add other dimension to the room. If you are a book worm, you are going to find the designs really attractive, believe me!

If your house has an open floor plan, the bookshelves can serve you as a great separator of the rooms. Instead of having the boring walls as divider, go ahead and design some outstanding bookshelves that will make a visual impact in the space.

When people decorate their interior, most of the times they focus on two thirds of the vertical space of the room, and leave behind the third one. In the upper space  of the walls you can add bookshelves that can be reached with stairs or ladder, and you will get an authentic dining library room. With this design you will put an accent to the upper part of the room and you will have a smart use of every inch of available space.

Instead of having cupboards filled with all of those chinaware pieces, vases or other decorative items that don’t serve you a useful purpose, we suggest you to add some bookshelves and display all of the books that you own. The possibilities of shelves design are endless, and you can choose between an array of them. I’m sure that you will find the perfect ones that will fit in your existing dining room.
