Many book lovers look forward to building out their very own home library when moving into a brand new house. It’s not unusual for bookworms to own so many books they could basically start their very own store. If you’ve found that your books are no longer just a fun hobby and more like a tripping hazard Home & Texture is here to help.
If you’re a bibliophile, you’ve no doubt found yourself admiring people’s bookcases and shelves online. On #bookstagram and #booktok, proud book nerds show off their latest reads as well as their well-put-together bookcases. We understand it’s not always easy to be one of those tidy bookworms. Sometimes you can’t help but have stacks of books in corners, on end tables and even a few piles of books piled next to an already overstuffed bookcase.
