Is your house crowded with books and magazines and you don´t have a clue where to put them? Throwing them away is, of course, an awful solution, but it seems to have no space at all in your bedroom, living room, and you don´t to hide them in your basement.
Books and magazines are, for some people, a decoration item.
We feel proud of the books we´ve read an bought, and we don´t want to put them away like something useless; we want to show everyone the books we have and we want them to be part of our house.
But how could you manage to storage them in a way people see it as a decoration? That´s why we´d like to introduce you to the bookcase staircase.
What is a bookcase staircase?
It is not difficult to have an idea of what it is, but this solution to your home has more than one model. To begin with, you´ll need, obviously a stair, or space to have one. The main idea of this decoration furniture is to minimize the occupied space you would use to storage all books you have.
Resuming, the spaces in your stair will be used as bookshelves. But there are infinite ways you can place the books.
For example, if you have a double apartment and you want to connect two floors without loosing the back-storing capability of the cupboard, you can have an overtoom stair. It means you will have a regular stair and a bookshelf in the same furniture. It will add your home a little fun and the room will look wider and bigger than it actually is. Another option is a book-lined staircase.
There will be a stair, and instead of two walls, there will be books. In some case the stair´s steps will work as drawer for your books.
Sometimes we look around our house and we feel something is missing. There is a lack of creativity and modernity which makes the rooms boring and old-fashioned. These types of stairs will add fun and beauty to any home. The role of the staircase will be redefined when treating it as a bookcase; the environment will not only look, but it will be more organized and yours books will be there as decoration items and to remind you every day of they have taught you and all the things you´ve learned from them.
