What Houzz contributors are saying:

A library aesthetic can also be attractive in a home office. Obviously, this person has a lot of space, but if you do have a whole floor to work with, consider a large table or two away from the desks where you can spread out or have conferences.
Margaret Everton added this to Creating a Working Library
Integrating an abbreviated library into a common area brings the idea of reading and intellectual perusing into the everyday. Even a small line-up or stack by the coffee or tea or toaster can change behavioral reading habits.
When considering a grid, take some of your larger books and measure their heights. You'll want to scale your grid accordingly.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Create a Customized Office Look Without Built-Ins
Repeat after me: "Fill the space." The secret to creating a look that looks like high-end built-in cabinets is to fill the space you have as completely as possible. These freestanding shelves almost perfectly fill the niches. They could have been purchased as single units, or could have been four separate bookcases in each niche. Whatever it takes to fill that wall or niche, fill it up instead of having a too-tiny storage unit stranded in the middle of a big wall.
A home office. If you work from home, you know how important your home office space is. You also know how quickly it seems to fill up with stuff, and how easily it is to be distracted by household goings-on. Fix this by turning your attic into the office. You’ll likely have more space, and the quiet of the top floor will help you concentrate.
Avoid clutter. Even if you’re working with a large space, fill it only with the essentials. A cluttered office doesn't just lead to disorganization; it can prove to be a distraction. “Once you’ve successfully transformed the space into an office, remember that it is indeed an office, no longer an attic for storage,” says Jenkins. “Don’t fill it up with too many items.”
