Bespoke Home Library Design – Create a Quiet Corner for Relaxing Moments

Who doesn’t enjoy the company of books? Whether you’re an avid reader, a keen collector or you simply enjoy the beauty and serenity of a bookshelf. Having a library design of your own is no longer reserved for country abodes or grand mansions, no matter what type of property you have a bespoke home library can be designed to fit you and your lifestyle.

Library Design 1

Country Barn Lounge and Library

A bespoke library can enhance any room in your home. It’s a delightful addition in a bedroom, dining room or lounge. If you have a smaller, second lounge, creating a library can transform it into a cosy snug where you can escape for a little ‘me time’.

Transform Your Quirky Corners into a Talking Point

The term ‘talking point’ shouldn’t really go hand-in-hand with libraries but these days home libraries are works of art even before you start loading the shelves with your prized collection. Our designers at Neville Johnson can see opportunities in quirky alcoves and sloping ceilings and work with these features to create beautiful libraries that are full of character and personality.

Dining Room and Library Design

Bespoke by Design

Each design is unique to you and your home and offers intelligent shelving solutions, inspired cabinet designs and subtle lighting to showcase your possessions. With a bespoke design, your library will meet your exact requirements from the length and depth of the shelving to the colour and finish. Shelf heights can be correctly calculated to avoid significant gaps above the books.

Maybe you want to include a drinks cabinet or drawer space for your technology? Perhaps you want to incorporate bespoke display cabinets for treasured pieces? All of this can be discussed at the design stage to ensure that every inch of your library has a purpose. If you intend to expand your book collection, this will be considered so that you have an opportunity to adjust the shelving.

Blue Library

Beautifully Presented

If you have large coffee table books it’s a shame to stack them on their sides so that only the spines can be seen. One trick is to face their beautiful front covers outward – this can break the monotony of rows of books and can also disguise more tattered books that you’d like to hide away. Instead of grouping books alphabetically like you’d find in a public library, you can have fun with the sizes of your books, stacking them in height order to create shapes on your shelves or why not order them by colour to get a visual theme going. Libraries are beautiful accompaniments to any room and are always a talking point, so why not speak to us about how a bespoke library can add character to your home.

“Hugely admired by family and friends”

The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.

Cherry Murdoch, London

“Effortless from start to finish”

From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.

Alison Cole, Swinton

“The craftsmanship is superb”

From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.

Judith Scorer, Stockport

“I cannot recommend this company enough”

I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.

Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham

“The staircase has transformed our living space”

From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings. The staircase has transformed our living space. We have been very impressed with this company from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Pauline Treston, Northumberland

“Our new staircase looks fantastic”

Our new staircase looks fantastic. We’ve had lots of compliments and it has transformed our hallway. The whole experience was great from beginning to end, from discussing our requirements to the finished article.

Mr & Mrs Begbie, Hampshire

“We would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation”

From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.

Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull

“Utterly professional”

From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!

Mr and Mrs Thorpe, Radcliffe

“I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone”

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.

Richard Smith, Surrey

“Impressed by the whole process”

From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.
