Decorative Bookcase Photos and Ideas for Your New Home


Built-in bookcases and bookshelves can add tremendous character and permanence to nearly any room of your new home.

Whether you're a book lover, or just looking for an appealing, permanent place to display your favorite curios, a built-in bookcase may be just the right touch.

There are many different styles of built in bookcases. Here are a few different bookcase ideas with pictures to give you ideas for your new home.



Where is the best place to build in a bookcase?


Popular locations for a built in bookcase include: surrounding the living room fireplace in, along a wall in the great room, inside a hallway, added to a home office, and tucked into a bonus room.

When considering the layout of your living room, it's important to keep in mind that the fireplace wall will offer limited space for furniture placement. This makes the fireplace wall an ideal space for built-in bookcases.

Nearly all built in bookcases have fixed shelves with a standard space between, making them perfect storage spaces in the busiest rooms of your home.

(See photos of fireplaces with wainscoting accents, here.)

Can I combine bookshelves with an entertainment center?


Built-in bookcases can be custom designed for a wide variety of different locations and uses.

The bookcase offers a nice storage area, while the space still feels open. Shelves surround a central space designed for a flat screen TV.

Do built in boocases work well in small rooms?


Floor plans with home offices are growing in popularity. Whether you're considering a full-size home office (typically 10'x10' to 14'x14') or a pocket office (typically about half the size of a full office, ranging from a small built in desk area to a 6'x6' room), a built in bookcase or desk can make a big difference in your daily work routines.

A long hallway upstairs or down can be perfectly accented with a beautiful built in bookcase or bookcases.

While these built-ins are located front-and-center, hallways are a great place to tuck bookcases designed for out of sight, but easily accessible, storage (for things like games, movies, and other items not intended for decoration):
