Share This

Bookshelves create the perfect decorating pallet for displaying more than books. So, whether you want to showcase your books or other items like artwork, family photos, heirlooms, photos of your new homes in Roswell NM community, potted plants, travel souvenirs, use these stylish ideas to decorate your bookshelves.               

  1. Color-coded system – Coordinate your books by color. Create vignettes, stack the books vertically and or horizontally, and use a sturdy trinket or potted plant as a bookend to add for more flair.
  2. Front and center – Hang a piece of art from the front of your bookshelf. This has become a very popular trend in recent years and is sure to give your bookshelf the wow factor. Hang a piece of art from the front of your bookshelf.
  3. Minimalist bookshelf – Keep it simple and interesting. Paint the back of the bookshelf. Place a potted plant on a shelf or just leave it empty. Add throw pillows or blankets that match the paint color you used for the bookshelf to tie everything in.
  4. Showcase your passions – If you love cinema, cooking, music, photography, sports, traveling, or writing, your bookshelf can be used as a way to showcase your passions. Show off your collection with prints, books, and artwork, and anything else related to your interests.
  5. Strewn objects – Distribute your favorite trinkets or vases amongst your books. This will help break up the monotony of your books while creating a visually enticing display.
  6. Volume collections – Do you have book collection sets or encyclopedia’s still? Stack your volumes on the shelves to display your collection.
  7. Wallpaper effect – Wallpaper has been making a comeback over the years. But wallpaper isn’t just for the walls of your home. Consider wallpapering the back of your bookshelf. This will upgrade your bookshelf from being boring to instantly give your bookshelf pizzazz.
