How Bookworms Can Make Better Use of a Dining Room

Many custom homes have well appointed dining rooms that feature a large table, plenty of seating, and an engaging design that stimulates conversation. But can the dining room be more? We challenge you to think outside of the box for your dining room design and consider transforming this space to reflect your personal style and your family's interests.

One fantastic way to elevate the dining room's design is to create a library atmosphere. Books of all shapes and sizes can be strategically added to a dining room space to integrate your love of reading. Custom built-in shelves, display cases, and specialized cabinetry are all ideal additions for showcasing your books. A library ladder adds visual interest and makes reaching the top shelves easy. Don't forget to use any extra space in the room to create a reading nook. Gather a cozy chair, plush rug, and task lighting to add a bit of comfort to your dining room design.
