What Houzz contributors are saying:
Honesty timeInvariably there will be books in your bookshelf that you’ve tried to read, or felt that you should read but never really got into. It’s ok not to finish a book you’re not enjoying and it’s ok to declutter these books too. Even if it was highly recommended to you or top of a bestseller list, if it isn’t your cup of tea, sending it to the op-shop will mean someone else will get to enjoy it.
6. Keep them within reachA great way to encourage children to read without supervision is to ensure their books are within reach; that means keeping them low and accessible. This bookshelf has adult books stored above and children’s books below, with the full covers on display.
1. On kids’ shelves in the grown-up library Talking about displaying books on Houzz can be a bit tricky, as bibliophiles tend to object to arranging books by colour or using books just for decor. But children’s books are a big exception. Displaying them adds to the decor of a room, but – more importantly – it also makes them easy for little eyes to see and for little hands to grab at reading time. It’s all about function. Here, display shelves to the floor are within the reach of toddlers in this family-friendly reading space. It’s a great way for all ages to feel included.
