Welcome! We've found some of the best ways to organize any book collection
Every bibliophile knows the importance of a well-organized book collection. Not only does the system make it easier to find your next reading, but it is also much more visually appealing. A well-organized bookcase can become the centerpiece of any living space, and the good news is that there are many different ways to organize your books (both aesthetically and functionally).
1. Organize by Color
One of the most popular ways to organize a bookshelf in your living room is to start by grouping your books by color. This beautiful glass-fronted library proves that organizing your books by color can be incredibly pleasing to the eye. Some hardcore book lovers may scoff at a color-organized bookshelf, but if you're a reader who tends to memorize covers, this is a great idea.
2. Pick Modern Shelves
If you want to display some of your favorite books, but don't have enough space for a full bookshelf, consider installing floating shelves. These simplified shelves almost seem to disappear into the wall, but they are incredibly useful for organizing a handful of books. This is a great idea for a small living room, in a bedroom, or on top of a desk.
3. Stack Them
Don't be afraid of drums. In a corner or next to a bed, a large pile of books can not only add an eclectic and rustic atmosphere to your space but also allow you to rate the books to read in order. This stack of books is perfect for lining up your next big reads.
4. Fill a Basket
Similarly, using baskets to organize books is a great idea. This is a great way to put aside your child's current favorites to make them easier to find. Once read, put them back on the shelf and refill them.
5. Play With Horizontal Stacking
Not all books need to be stacked vertically. We love this corner shelf that features an extensive collection of books, some upright and some horizontally. This is a great way to create a parquet effect on the bookshelf and divide the rows of books. Add trinkets to the top of the piles for even more texture.
6. Mix Them In
You don't need to dedicate a whole shelf to books. A more minimalist approach like this allows you to mix up some of your favorite books without creating an entire library. If you're a Kindle reader or just don't have the space to store hundreds of books, choosing a few and displaying them elegantly is a great idea.
7. Try Alphabetical
Now, if you have an extensive collection, a real organizational system is a better bet. One of the most common ways to organize an extensive collection of books is in alphabetical order by the author's last name. This makes it easy to find exactly what you want to read, quickly.
8. Organize by Height
If you have a sense of satisfaction when you see books lined up on the shelf, this idea is for you. You can go from largest to smallest or try the largest on the outer edges of the shelf (with the smallest in the middle) for a little more visual interest.
9. Arrange by Genre
Another great way to organize a larger collection is by gender. If you have one similar to this, you can do a shelf makeover, organizing the titles based on the category. Group mystery novels with other mystery novels, non-fiction with non-fiction, etc. This is a great idea if you often choose books based on the genre you fancy.
10. Place Large Books Near the Bottom
Sometimes large, heavy books near the top of a bookshelf can look messy and cluttered. Use the lower shelves to store the largest books, which helps add balance to the overall space.
