One of the constant issues in almost any household is space. It seems that, no matter how large your house is, you could always use an extra inch or two. We often bust our brains thinking how we can organize better so that we can have perfectly functional rooms which are also very pleasant to live in.
When it comes to space, the children’s room is the most challenging one. Toys, sports equipment, school stuff, books and so on. They all seem to pile up and the room seems cramped and cluttered. But don’t panic, with a little imagination, we can turn things around.
Let’s discuss, in this article, about the bookcase. This is a very important piece design-wise (if we plan it properly, we can save a lot of space), but it also plays a role in stimulating our children’s appetite for knowledge.
So how do we create an attractive reading environment? How about a little inspiration from nature?
1. The corner bookcase
You will need two pieces of chipboard, about 30” wide and as tall as you want, to be mounted on the two walls forming the corner, tied with triangular shelves. This is the perfect tree trunk; all you have to do next is paint the branches.
2. The economy bookcase
All you need is a narrow wall, rectangular pieces of wood painted in a bold color and some creativity to connect them in the form of a tree.
3. The irresistible bookcase
Children aren’t always passionate readers, so why don’t we stimulate them by creating a surprising bookcase. All you have to do is create the bookcase described at point 1. and hang a “hammock” from one of the branches.
