Trendy Duo: Dining Room & Library Bookshelves

The dining room is the place of our house where we share great food with great company. For those to whom books also mean great company, there is nothing better than a dining area with bookshelves in it. It is time to finally let your book collection see the daylight and turn your library into a modern dining area, where you can not only read books but also spend quality and precious time with your friends and family.

These dining rooms all have one thing in common: the brilliant bookshelves on the sides. However, that does’t mean that the style is always the same. On the contrary, the dining area designs can vary from modern, contemporary, eclectic and traditional styles.

Contemporary style examples


The dining room space is usually limited in most of the modern homes but it’s very easy to add a couple of tall bookshelves in this area. This specific style has endless offers and possibilities but modular bookshelves are always a smart option, as they take almost no space and yet they still give the cozy library wanted environment. It is also not surprising that the favorite colors, of most people, for the contemporary style, are white and grey (as we can see in the images).
