Cuddle Up with Your Favourite Book this Long Weekend – Victoria, 3 & 4 Bedroom Coquitlam Townhomes
November 9, 2018
Winter is coming. With the leaves turning colour and temperatures starting to drop, there’s no better time to cozy up at home and catch up on your favourite reads. Whether it’s a classic novel, inspirational design book or aspirational cookbook, allowing for some me-time is a must during the holiday season. Of course, you’ll need somewhere to store all of your favourite collections.
Shelves are an easy way to elevate the design of any blank wall while maximizing storage space. The features and designs of our homes at Victoria by Mosaic make it easy to build beautiful bookshelves. Here are some great ways to use bookshelves throughout your home.
Ten-Foot Ceilings Make Better Bookshelves
When was the last time you lived in a home with 10-foot ceilings? Taller ceilings allow for more volume in a home, resulting in more storage opportunities. (Consider this, most apartments range from 8- to 9-feet in height. That’s nearly 50 more of your favourite books that you can stack.) Transform your living room at Victoria by adding a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf. Mix in some pieces collected from recent travels or adventures and find a design piece or two that speaks to the space. We’re certain you’ll have a better bookshelf in no time.
We’ve Included Space Modulars to Make it Easy
Our homes at Victoria are open and airy with little-to-no wasted space. In order to define each space while still keeping things open, we included special space modulars in every home. And don’t worry, we thought out all of the important details such as depth and location of each modular. Add a bookshelf to the living room and a built-in bench with storage to the dining room. We set the canvas. The opportunities are endless.
Make the Bookshelf You
So now you have your bookshelf built. How do you make it look awesome? Start with making sure all of your favourites are easily accessible. You never know when you’ll want to dive into Gone Girl for the eighth time. Next, add a few pieces simply for fun. A great travel, cook or fashion book (Momofuku or Sneakers are two of our favourites) usually does the trick. Finish it off with some smaller accessories and greenery and your bookshelf will become a focal point of your new home.
