Turning Your Loft Into a Library

Are you a bookworm who enjoys losing yourself in the world of books? Then converting your loft into a reading room or personal library could be the perfect haven.

Whether or not you’re a book lover, research has found that reading books reduces your stress levels by 68%, something many of us could benefit from. So even if reading isn’t something that usually interests you, then perhaps incorporating a quiet, designated room in your house could encourage you to slow down your busy day-to-day life.

Loft conversions can provide many different options for extra space, but a library can really offer a place for you to switch off and escape the rest of the house. Alternatively, you could create an office or study room, with a dedicated reading nook, giving you even more value for your money.

Here are some ways to turn your dusty old attic into a fictional wonderland.

Bookcase

You can’t have a library without shelving, so at the top of the list is a bookcase, to store all your much-loved books. Book storage is both practical and aesthetically pleasing, and you can make it completely personal to you.

From modern and minimalist shelving to traditional mahogany furniture, you can store your contemporary coffee table books to your classic antique hardbacks however you like. Why not colour coordinate your bookshelf? Creating your very own library conversion means you can have it custom-made.

Storage

Depending on how you use the space, you can store other miscellaneous household items in the loft. You could invest in furniture that includes built-in seating, keeping the room clutter-free, while still providing storage space away from the main house.

If you’re planning on using your reading room as a study too, then you could store any documents or files you need, keeping everywhere tidy and organised.

Furniture

To fully enjoy a good book, you’ll need a comfy seat! You want the room to be cosy, inviting, and most importantly somewhere you can wind down on a rainy afternoon or at the end of a long day.

A cosy armchair will do the trick, or even a sofa to really stretch out. Perhaps a seat fitted into a sloping wall will create the perfect reading sanctuary for you, like a window seat or a day bed.

Lighting

You don’t want to strain your vision when you’re reading, so make sure you have light to see what you’re reading. If you want to keep it snug and intimate then a reading lamp will illuminate the pages with soft lighting, while also making a nice feature in the room.

Alternatively, if you want a light and airy space then installing skylights into your loft roof will offer natural light, perfect for reading and keeping the room bright and calm.

Colour Scheme

Again, this comes down to personal taste. If you’re wanting to create a tranquil space then simple white walls will work, while neutral and pastel shades will create interest without being distracting. Remember, you want the room to focus purely on reading and resting.

Get Reading

Now you know the basics, you can create the space however you like. All that’s left to do is get reading!
