Fabulous Book Storage Solutions

Books are a huge passion of mine.  Here is some inspiration room decor with wonderful children’s book storage solutions.

This first room is dreamy from top to bottom and I love the ample storage it offers.

DIY bookshelves turned creative reading nook with the addition of curtains.

These Moments of Mine

DIY and Budget Challenged!?  Ikea Spice Racks aren’t huge, but they are only $3.99 and a great option for a kid’s wall mounted bookshelf. (This is out of stock at my store…check your store inventory before heading that way).

Domestic Simplicity

Clear bookshelves to blend in with the room’s decor.

Clear Displays

Create a great book storage solution for young children by simply sewing slits into opposite sides of fabric, sliding a dowel through the opening of each side (each slit), and mounting it with two double curtain rod brackets.

Apartment Therapy

This is another great use of space between two windows and has tons of storage.  I’m always surprised how many books fit in a wall mounted bookshelf.

More floor to ceiling book displays in this sweet girlie room.

Daffodil Design

I love the the uniqueness of these numbered wall mounted bookshelves.  Super creative.

The Sweet Survival

Attach legs to an old drawer for a toddler height book storage solution.


I’m not sure my boys would ever keep their books this organized, but the concept of storing children’s books in an old wagon is so fun for a boys bedroom.

Design on a Budget

This is such a fun way to store books in a child’s room, craft room, or maybe my office!?!?  I love storage solutions that make picking up very simple.  Update:  I built my own…click here to see my diy floating shelves.


Stud built me floating shelves – tutorial, and I love them!

I like the rustic, natural style to these book shelves.

JoJo’s Room

Why limit bookshelf storage to just one wall?  I love this collection of children’s books with a turned corner to squeeze in a few more books.

And here’s my tutorial on how to build a wall mounted bookshelf as seen in my boys bedroom.

It’s Overflowing

And if we planned on making this our forever home, I would clear away the closet doors on one of my boys closets and make them this reading nook.  Love it.

  1. We LOVE books at our house! We have wayyy too many of them! I’m loving that second one…the nook with curtains! So dreamy! I also like the idea of books in an old wagon!

    Great ideas! Books are probably the only thing I stash more of than fabric, and I can’t wait til the littlest one gets over his paper chewing phase so I can finally do something like this!
