Extend Storage And Function With Home Library Floor Plans

Have you ever thought of transforming a room in your home into a library? Books can be hard to store, and a dedicated space for them means they stop taking over your living room or bedroom. Or perhaps you have thought about creating a dedicated space for homework, study and entertainment pursuits. With Donald A. Gardner Architects, home library floor plans can give you this space right at home. Whether you use it to store books, have a quiet retreat, or create a home entertainment room, home library design plans will meet your needs well.

Home Library Design Means More Than Adding a Place for Books

If you are not a bibliophile, you might think library house plans aren't for you, but library designs do much more than add a space to store a collection of books. A home library provides a space for books, yes, but it can also be a place for homework and school projects, additional entertaining space, a game room, extra storage and much more. When you shop for house plans with library space from Donald A. Gardner Architects, you will find a number of differing designs to meet the needs of a wide range of homeowners.

Consider, for an example, The St. Regis. This 2,344 square foot design has a spacious study that is easily converted into a library. In addition, it has plans for a patio, complete with a large, open great room with a cathedral ceiling and a screened-in porch for outdoor entertaining away from the elements.

Stately and elegant, The Carmine, measuring 2,508 square feet, has gabled peaks and impressive windows on its exterior, and directly inside the door is a study that easily converts into a library. Accessible and convenient, the library can become a central hub for homework and study activities.

These are just two examples of home plans that have a space for a library. Browse our available floor plans, narrowing your options by the features you want, to find home plans with library space that meet your needs and budget.

Work With the Architects to Add a Library to Your Existing Plan

Maybe you already have a home built or a home plan chosen, but wish to add a library space. Doing so requires more than just adding shelving to a study or bonus room. You need to ensure that the lighting is right, the floor is properly supported for the load of your book collection, and the overall design flows well.

Donald A. Gardner Architects can help. Our modification team can adjust existing house plans and work with existing buildings to convert them so that they contain a library. Let us know what your needs are, and we will help you!
