Back to School Inspiration: Displaying Books in Kids Rooms!

With school quickly approaching, it’s time to prepare and refresh.  Perhaps the kids’ rooms need a little refreshing of their own – and what better way to do it than with school in mind!  This year, get inspired by books.  Displaying books around nurseries and kids rooms is a new trend that’s great for kids and parents.  The use of ledges, shelves, and bookcases is helping to create reading nooks and storybook nurseries.

Encourage your little ones to read with these charming inspirational images.  We love the idea of displaying your books for all to see.  A storybook nursery can be a great choice for a theme that lasts throughout the years.  *For your baby shower, request that guests bring their favorite baby book in lieu of a card.  This will help fill those shelves in no time!

We love the thought of using Surya poufs in a corner of a room.  It's a great option for some quick comfort and a unique place that makes reading extra fun.

Surya Poufs are shown throughout Belfort Furniture showrooms and are available to order.

The Newberry Bookcase Bed offers plenty of storage space for books, an alarm clock, and other little trinkets.

Looking for even more storage?  Start with the Dana Writing Desk and work your way around this bookcase wall with other Dana storage options from Young America.

Sometimes you have to think creatively about kids furniture to create the ideal setting, and other times it's effortless!  Visit the Belfort Furniture Kids Showroom to see more ideas and inspiration for kids bedrooms and nurseries interior design.
