How adding a library to your home could guarantee the sale of your property

Every book lover will tell you that there is no substitute for a real book. There is something very romantic about reading a book, analogue. Turning the pages manually, holding it in your hand as you curl up with a good story.

Every book lover will tell you that there is no substitute for a real book. There is something very romantic about reading a book, analogue. Turning the pages manually, holding it in your hand as you curl up with a good story.

Yes, technology has moved on. We have e-readers that allow instant download of virtually any book ever written and storage for hundreds, if not thousands, of books that can be held in one hand. There is something special about sitting and reading a hard copy book, which you simply can't get when holding a device. 

Many bibliophiles will have stacks upon stacks of books, largely unread, towering around their houses. Shelves filled to bursting. And the likelihood is that they probably haven't read all of them and perhaps never will. 

Browsing bookshops and purchasing books for your shelves is as much of a hobby as reading itself.

And, if you love the wonder of reading and transporting yourself to another world filled with magic, you will more than likely have a dream of one day having a library in your home. 

Technically, to qualify as a library, there must be at least 1000 books, which for a domestic home is quite a lot. But one room that houses all of your stories and reference books would be dreamy, wouldn't it? Shelves that reach the ceiling. A ladder to help you reach the books that you want. Soft, comfortable chairs to curl into. 

A lovely space to curl up under a blanket with a large cup of tea and a good book. With nothing else to do except get lost in your story, without distraction. 

These added extras in a property set one home apart from another, and a library would most definitely attract a fellow book lover to buy your home. 

A library, nook, snug or reading room - whatever you want to call it - could be the feature that clinches the sale for you when you try to sell your property.
