The Best Front Facing Bookshelves for your Montessori Playroom

Looking for the best front facing bookshelves? These are super popular shelves for those following the Montessori method! Here are the best shelves you can find on the internet.

Luke loves books, he just loves them! He has a full bookshelf in his room, but we wanted to give him additional book storage in the loft.

We were excited to discover the forward facing bookshelf.

This is a shelving unit that has books displayed with the covers facing forward. It’s the perfect height for kiddos and allows them to really see what books they have available to choose from.

This style of book shelf is very popular with those following the Montessori style of child raising and playroom decorating.

We built our own DIY front facing bookshelf, but I know that some of you might prefer to purchase one.

So, I decided to round up some of the best front facing bookshelves available for purchase! I hope this helps you decorate your playroom or young child’s space!
