A good idea: a bookstore on the stairs

If you are a passionate about reading, you will have noticed that, although knowledge does not take place, books do, and much. Despite not being an inveterate reader, in my house they are already starting to accrue; Novels, architectural compendiums, photography manuals, design magazines ... although I still have them under control, I fear the day I no longer have room for them.

On the other hand, in the case at hand, the number of books to store He was noticeably older.

Given the impossibility of placing more conventional shelves, for fear of creating a space too narrow, and not having beams to mount a library on the ceiling, we opted for a bookcase on the stairs, taking advantage that the width was enough to leave a loose step.

The key to making this solution fruitful is to make the structure result light. For this, it is essential to move books both from the floor and from the ceiling, in addition to not exceeding the depth of the shelves. In this way, we will get the width of the hole in its entirety. Choose a light color, preferably white, helps to increase that feeling of lightness.

It is also important to limit yourself to one side only of the ladder, so that it is understood as a book plan. If we order them properly, they can be used to create a decorative motif that serves as a perspective background.

While it is true that this is a custom made bookcase, it is easy to create a similar composition from standard modules that you can find in most furniture stores. When designing the structure, do it in such a way that the supports are as centered as possible on the step footprint, thus avoiding unnecessary risks.

Although it has nothing to do with the bookstore, I am sure that you have all noticed the orange wall topped off with that precious wall phone and a magnificent chocolate brown leather armchair. In my opinion, a great counterpoint that gives depth to the room. In addition, the color follows the ladder, contrasting with the white of the structure and increasing its lightness.
