Most of us have a dream room that we’d love to have in our homes one day. This might be a home gym, a butler’s kitchen, a theatre room or a pool that rivals those in five star hotels.
But for all bookworms there is one common house goal – a home library.
This is not just for the convenience of having somewhere to store their hundreds of collected books (don’t even suggest a Kindle!), the contentment that a room full of carefully coordinated books can bring or the desire to have somewhere to read in peace for hours on end – they also look amazing and can make a massive statement in your home.
