A bookshelf is almost a compulsion in every house. Whether you’re an avid reader or not, there are always at least a few books that every family comes around with. Recipe books, old diaries from younger ages, scrapbooks – you name it and every Indian family will have some of them to flaunt oh-so-dearly in their house.
Not all houses are big and so not all of them come with enormous spaces to accommodate a massive bookshelf or even a library for the matter of fact. Does that mean your books go down the gutter or you just keep them cramped up somewhere? No.
Even small apartments can have smart options for bookshelves. We’ve assembled 5 such ideas for you to have amazing bookshelves in your ready to move flats in Mohali.

Skip the conventional choices of putting up fancy posters and/or pictures and instead make space for a bookshelf to showcase your books’ collection. The space on the wall above the couch or sofa in your living room is a great option to have a bookshelf. Your guests can right away see the marvelous collection you have.
2. Right after the entrance of the house
