My boys bedroom is almost done. It’s a challenge to decorate and organize their bedroom/ playroom since it’s very small. I have been trying to use all the available space in a way that it’s easy for the kids to play. Most importantly I want it to be well-organized, safe and comfortable for them. Since, the bedroom is also their playroom. All their stuff gets to stay in there, i.e toys, books, clothes… I have been in search for simple ways to organize books. A storage solution that works for my toddler. And the books are beyond reach of my baby. So, I found these 30 best books storage solutions. And I am still unsure about which one to choose. There are so many great book organization ideas.
The best ways to organize books include bookcases, bookshelves and racks to store and display books. Whether it’s about buying an amazing books display. Or making a DIY books storage. Or repurposing and reusing crates, pallets, suitcases and old wood. You will find several creative ideas.
Let’s check these clever ways to organize books for kids:

I love this idea of using two bookcases together for organization. The plus point about this idea is you can use these bookcases in various settings for different purposes around the house later on! Or if you are living in an apartment/ house. And you are planning to move. These can easily become a part of new space, no matter what design.
A very cool idea to use a drawer with legs as book rack.
Use a large bookcase to organize books, toys and more in kids room/ playroom.
I love the use of baskets to organize. Attach labels to them for ease of access.

Make a bookshelf with plywood in the shape of a house. Too cute!
I wish there was a tutorial to make it! But it seems like you can turn any bookcase into a house by just adding a roof on the top.
Just screw two plywood boards into a bookcase.
Looks like a bookcase made with wooden boards (as frame), dowels and bead board (for background texture).
Beautiful spine bookshelves can be found on amazon. But this one looks like it’s made out of wooden blocks screwed into a stud.
