Back in 2010, Kat shared her book corner with you and then posted a quick round up of gallery bookshelves for you. Four years on, this post is still popular so we thought it was time for a little refresh!
Gallery bookshelves are great for kids as it gives them access to books and makes selecting them much easier. They also look fabulous decked out with colourful picture books.
The star gallery bookshelf (£26, GLTC) is ideal for a small corner or for beside the bed. You can all more bookshelves as your collection grows. The Tidy Books bookshelf holds an impressive 85 books and is available in a range of finishes, with or without an alphabet £135. The Greenaway Gallery bookcase is a brilliant, classic design, it holds a lot and is off the floor so saves on floor space. It’s currently on sale for £72.25.
This chunky mobile library from Vertbaudet is great if you’re short on wall space or renting. It has three deep divided shelves and costs £54. While you’re over there, also check out the gallery bookshelf and storage unit. Great for stashing away books and treasures £69.
Both of the shelves above were made using the Ribba Picture Ledge from Ikea. At just £4.99 for a 55cm ledge it is a chic budget option which can be used to create a stunning DIY option.
