The Ikea library in the bedroom appeared as the last of the functionalities of this room. Our bedroom changes its many functionalities with the development of our family. Initially - in addition to our sleeping place, of course - it also served sleeping corner for the child z the basket of Moses, feeding corner or care cornerto finally become a corner with books and a reading chair.

At least in theory, because in practice this chair mainly served as a place for storing clothes - just as he stood next to us, our motivation to hang them in the closet decreased to zero.

Due to the fact that the armchair more and more often became a magnet for clutter, and books on the bookshelf did not fit long ago, I decided to make a change here and give up the chairwhere I almost never sat for ... two additional shelves for books and decorations so that a real bookcase in the bedroom is created.

And so ours was created Ikea home bookcase in the bedroom! The wardrobes we have in the bedroom are a PAX system, I have expanded them with another two modules 50 cm each. I love modular solutions - thanks to this, in one day I can change, expand or change the functionality of the furniture.

In order for the library in the bedroom to look more like a made-to-measure piece of furniture, rather than an ordinary bookcase, I bought it Hole plugs for shelves - you will see the difference in the next photo - in the first shelf from the right the holes are already blinded, in the middle one not yet - I wait with their blindness until I set the final height of the shelves. I came up with that shelf heights will be irregular, thanks to which the library will gain curiosity.

I have accumulated over the years some souvenirs - like my dad's beloved camera, whom I took my first DSLR pictures with - and trinkets I really like them - I'm glad that I finally have them to display. The Ikea library is perfect for extending our wardrobe.

Only what I sometimes regret is that e-books are not attached to paper books - or vice versa - I've been reading most books on the Kindle reader since 6 for years, so my collection for the most part does not allow me to glance over the backs of books and remember what I have read in recent years.

Alone - when I'm in guests - I can't take my eyes away from home bookcases, it is a huge source of inspiration for me and has often allowed me to find my soul mate faster in the host, when it turned out that we love the same titles.

I still dream about building this space above the Ikea library in the bedroom and installing two wall lamps there. Today, I would also choose matt fronts - if I ever manage to sell these on olx, then I will probably think of new ones.

    IKEA solutions are quite cool and functional, there is less and less space for books, we only need must have titles, maybe as children grow up it will change.

    I've been following the library for a few months now, because so far the books are lying in artistic disarray on the bedroom floor and they serve as a table under ... everything ... I can't quite fit such a spacious one, but I think that one corner will be useful 🙂 one thing I care about, that the library would be closed so that it wouldn't be so dusty 🙂

    The bookshelf looks very nice. The colors are very aesthetically pleasing. I tried it myself, but I have real rococo 😀
