Beautiful home libraries are more than storage spaces. Beautiful home libraries encourage learning, inner growth and development. Choose the right shelving and the libraries provide your home an elegant charm. Despite their size, home libraries that take up an entire long wall aren't always expensive.

Building your beautiful home library

Less expensive home libraries call for a little DIY skills. For example, you could purchase four six-foot bookcases from your local office superstore and line the bookcases up side-by-side. It takes about half an hour to build each bookcase. Keep extra shelving knobs in a bag or drawer.

Over time,knobs can bend or get lost. You'll keep your home library shelves from slipping or leaning by replacing damaged or missing knobs. As a tip, make sure that floors you build the bookcases on is flat, as these bookcases can top over if they are placed on uneven flooring. Ebony and cherry wood shelving offers an elegant feel.

White shelving works well in rooms that are painted with neutral colors. Lighter colored bookcases also work well in rooms that are topped with crown molding. Some built in shelves come in white. What you'll get with built in shelving is a casual, modern look.

So many beautiful home library options

Paint wall libraries the same color as the other walls in the room. As an example, you could paint your wall library ocean or turquoise blue, a soft yellow or a mild green. Place a matching colored sectional sofa in the room and decorate the sofa with fashionable pillows.

Tall finished and unfinished chest drawers, the kind that you pick up from secondhand stores and flea markets, bring out the personality in smaller rooms. Hang original oil paintings on both sides of the chest. Open chest drawers wide to show off a library full of large sized, hard cover books. If you're an art lover, place arts books at the center of the chest.

Here's another option. Turn one side of your home office or study into a spectacular library. Decorate your office or study with an antique wood desk and leather,high back chair. Add in an antique coffee table and cabriole sofa. Place your home library next to the sofa. Put the sofa and library so that they face the largest window in the room. You'll love taking in natural outdoor views while you read an entertaining book, work on a new novel, check the mail or finish up a project.

Remember your children. In your children's bedroom, use the space between short windows as library shelves. You could also install narrow three shelf bookcases next to the windows. Section off books with stuffed animals or hand crafted pottery pieces.

There are so many ways to add a beautiful home library to your house. Benefits include a personal history of literacy promotion. After all, print books are becoming more a rarity in today's digital age. But, that doesn't decrease the value of print books.

A way that you can celebrate books and develop a love for ongoing learning is to build your own beautiful home library. Stick to using your library as a place to spotlight your favorite books. Add in decorative knick knacks and family portraits and, before long, your home library might become the favorite place in your home.

If youíre looking to buy a property in the near future, you may be considering a condominium as a part of your search criteria. Thereís so much to consider when you are deciding on whether to buy a condo or a traditional home. Condos can be great for the right buyers. You just need to be sure that your needs will be met by purchasing a condo. Hopefully, laying out the pros and cons will help you to make an informed decision thatís right for you.

The Positives

Thereís many great pros to buying a condo. For people who seek security and easy upkeep living, buying a condo can be great for the following reasons:   

Security: Many condominiums offer gated communities with security staff on duty. In this way, living in a condo gives you a special sort of safe community feel. 

Amenities: Condos also offer many different kinds of perks for owners. These can include a pool, a clubhouse, or community events. You wonít get all of these unique benefits living in a traditional house.

Maintenance: You donít have to worry about maintaining your home or the surrounding areas. In a condo, someone else takes care of it for you! When your heating unit fails, it will be taken care of. This is one of the great benefits to this style of home.  

Accessible prices: Condos are much more affordable than homes in many places.  Purchasing a condo can be a great first step to home ownership.   

The Negatives


HOA Fees: All of the amenities that condos carry come at a price. You as the homeowner cover the costs of maintenance and security in the community. This fee is paid on top of your mortgage payment. In some cases, the association fees can vary widely, so plan your finances accordingly. 

Privacy: Living in a condo is similar to living in an apartment. Thereís a lack of privacy that exists when youíre sharing walls with your neighbors. Youíll hear people going up and down the halls and fellow owners will be around you 24 hours a day. If you enjoy your privacy and space, condo living may not be for you. 

Selling: If you have seen one condo in a specific complex, you have seen them all. Thatís what makes selling a condo difficult at times. If a building has more empty units than not, the condo may be more difficult to sell. Keep this in mind when youíre searching.   

Condos Have Rules: Living in a condo means youíre living under the managementís rules. You may not to be able to install the technology that you want like solar panels and satellite TV under the community regulations, for example. A condominium's home owner association may limit things like what you can do in your yard or hang on your door.

In Summary

The decision to buy a condo over a single family home is a big one. Thereís many different things that need to be considered on an individual basis for your choice to be complete. Look at your decision from all angles. A condo could be a great pathway to home ownership for many people.
