Everything has a place and everything in its place looks perfect. Homes seem to be incomplete without home shelves, and decorating them will definitely brighten up your house. Beautify your home shelves with these amazing guides. Wall shelves are an amazing way of adding electric and elegant effect to your house.
While decorating your shelves, consider the styling, taste, and most importantly, amount of storage space you require. While creating shelves, remember to be practical in a way that your space would look lovely.
Accessorise your shelves with unique colours, textures, designs, proportions and positions where they are placed. There is a fashion of contrasting and matching themes but choose wisely between both of them. Adjust everything with the theme of your house. Deck up your shelves with the below-mentioned tips and objects:
Decorate your shelves
If you are an old school person, this is a great idea for you to enjoy reading books and decorating your shelves. Convert your messy piled-up books and magazines into decorating pieces.
Play with colour combinations, to enhance the look. Set your books in ascending order which will also provide a symmetrical look. If the colour theme does not go well, try for minimal colours or you can also go with all brown covers for your books. If you face space issues, set your books in a vertical way.
Pop up your shelves with some flora and fauna which definitely add life and colour to your room. They are beneficial to health as well as add up to decoration.
Do not place your plants on hooded shelves as they can die due to less oxygen. Find those plants which are fresh in look and clean air. You can also put scented candles on your shelves, which will also remove odour. You can also add a mason jar full of tea and herbs. Air plants will go best.
Enhance your wall's appearance with glorifying visuals, add photographs! Decorate your family pictures, landscapes and Vastu pictures on your home shelves.
Organise pictures according to the size. If you have larger shelves, you can place big frames but do not clutter them in one place.
Play with height
When you have different items on your shelves other than books, choose different heights of objects to catch an eye. For example, add a classy vase, colourful long painting or any other antique object.
Colour your shelf
Use monochromatic colours like white and baby blue which will help to create an illusion of a bigger room. You can also paint your shelves which will add colours to your room and make it look classy or combine it with multi-colour shelves.
To make your room look contemporary, choose asymmetric designs for your bookshelves.
While choosing these types of designs, always choose a design with practical aspects, because sometimes later on less space becomes a problem. To create a 3D effect, choose double-wall borders. If you have a busy life, it is beneficial to have asymmetric shelves as they won't require much effort to decorate.
Antique is best
Adorn your home shelves with antique vintage objects like old rusted boxes, glass bottles and some decorative stones.
