What do you do when you have too many books in print? You either get a Kindle in order to better manage your reading passion, or build yourself an out-of-the-box storage solution like the Staircase/ Bookcase design project in the images above. It’s one of the most efficient designs I’ve ever seen when it comes to storing book collections, but there are a couple of downsizes too when looking at this bookcase with a double personality. First of all you need a two-story house or apartment, otherwise building such a storage design will lose its second functionality and thus its coolness. But most importantly using the Staircase/Bookcase as an actual staircase might not be something you’ll want to do since inevitably, you’ll end up getting dirt on some of your favorite titles.
