No piece of decor holds as much promise as the humble shelf. A literal blank canvas for your next project, this slab of wood has the ability to infuse both heart and functionality into your space.
Of course, this versatility is exactly what makes it so daunting. Home to anything from plants and books to tableware and kitchen tools, shelving is a formidable opponent for design experts and novices alike.
If you’re in the midst of a stare-down with your new shelving unit, we’ve got you. The below spaces offer shelf decor ideas in spades.
Add Depth With a Strategically Placed Coat of Paint
Follow the lead of painting the back wall of your unit black to make the shelves look especially deep. Stick to just a few white accessories to further highlight the contrast.
Paint Your Bookcase, but Do It Selectively
This effect is definitely more eye-catching than if you cover the whole bookcase in paint. The colorful sections have to be selected according to the objects and books you want to put forward. The result? A series of mini jewel boxes carefully arranged to create an overall graphic effect.
Pick a Color Palette and Stick to It
Before you even think about the elements you want to place, select a few complementary hues you want to feature. Not only will this make for a seamless shopping experience, but the resulting collection will look cohesive.
Eliminate Decision Fatigue With Picture Ledges
Rather than narrow your art down to just a few permanent pieces, install photo ledges and switch up the display as much or as little as you want. Stick with a single frame style and simply lean your selected works against the wall.
Keep It Simple
A sparsely decorated shelf can be just as effective as a jam-packed floor-to-ceiling bookcase. Keep it from looking cold by selecting high-contrast photography or knickknacks that pick up on the other colors in the space.
