Take Your Home Study or Library to the Next Level

Are you a bookworm or just love having a space to read, write, or think? If so, you may be lucky enough to have a dedicated study or library in your home. Or possibly you have turned a spare room into your dream home library. When planning out this space, what are the items on your list that are “must haves?” And what color will you paint this room to make it just the way you want? Let’s explore some ideas that will help you in the planning process of making your dream study!

Color Palette

Depending upon the size and/or style of your space, you may want to choose one or two colors that can help define the area. Take into account the adjoining rooms if it is not an enclosed space, or the overall color palette of your home. If you are looking for something cozy and enveloping, maybe try a darker tone or neutral as your backdrop. If you like a splash of color, maybe a green or red could be an accent wall. If you are looking for serene and calm, maybe a lighter color should be your pick. Check out Benjamin Moore’s online page on color personality to help you choose the color that will be right for your space. Or talk to the color specialists here at Jerry Enos Painting who can take a look at your space and help you decide.

Must-Haves

Most homeowners have a list of items that they must have in certain spaces. Usually this list is determined by the purpose or theme of the room. If your study is meant to be a space where you can write, then investing in a desk that matches your personality and needs is a must-have. If you plan to cozy up and read in your study, then a lounger or sofa may be a good choice. If you plan to meet with others in a book club fashion, then a grouping of chairs would be a good choice. The Fresh Home Online website has some amazing examples of the many must-haves you may want in your home study.
