Home Shelving

Give your book collection a good home

Are you a book worm that’s destined to be Kindle free forever?

Every English student, journalist, author and obsessive reader out there will feel passionately about books – not the electronic type but the good old fashioned type. The smell of the paper, the faded print and the evocative front covers are all part of the relationship that many of us have with literature and the printed word.

As a result we treasure our books – be it a favourite cookery book, an old sentimental diary or your favourite Jane Austen novel, books are a big part of our lives and should be treated with the love and care they deserve.

Not only can a bursting book shelf look attractive in the home, it also provides us with a convenient storage space for our ever expanding book collections.

Where do you store yours?

Are you using up precious loft space with hundreds of dusty books that could be organised on a book shelf in a study? Dust them off and bring them on down!

A Shelfstore book shelf will transform any empty wall and providing a loving home for your neglected collection.

Books are often treasured family possessions, handed down from generations before. They’re a possession that deserve a great deal more from life than a damp, dusty box or a cold heartless garage!

Here are some ideas on how you can be showcasing your book collection –

  • Create a library – perhaps in your study or spare room. A wall of bookshelves filled with gems – an added quirky ladder or foot stool can create a point of interest for your family and a talking point for guests.


  • In your sitting room – use fire place alcoves to create bookshelves – and perhaps mix these up with photos, artwork and ornaments.


  • In your kitchen – don’t hide your cookery books behind closed doors – be inspired to experiment and create shelves in your kitchen to display your treasured cookery books too. A kind of kitchen library, if you will.


Most of us are guilty of stashing away books in unseen places because we believe we don’t have the room for them in our homes – this is where Shelfstore shelving can help. Our book shelving is flexible and easy to assemble. You can vary the width, depth and height to suit your personal requirements.

So if you do anything today – why not show your books some love and provide them with a new home?!

Shelfstore is a system of creating furniture, shelving and storage solutions around your ideas – in any size, and to fit your space.
