So I'm looking at getting a new place and converting the largest room in the house into a library. Would it lower the value of the house at all or significantly if I was to do so?
I'd have to bolt bookcases to the wall because they will be tall and if/when I leave that property I won't be taking them with me. I'm even thinking of knocking a wall through if it's necessary because I have several thousand books to house and unless I get lucky and find a property that's perfectly suited for it without any work being needed, I'll have to knock a wall through.
I know there are some people that would love to buy a property with a library already installed, but those people are few and far between and then it comes down to location etc etc, so I don't know whether to do it or not or whether I'm going to have to just knock a wall through and have free standing bookcases that aren't as tall but taking up more space.
It's been nagging me all evening and I thought I'd try and find some answers as it's 1 am and I can't really call a property place until the morning, assuming they're even open on Saturdays.
