Interior Design Challenge: How to Keep Bookshelves Looking Chic, Not Cluttered
It’s ok to admit it, when you watch HGTV every night (yes, every night, I know it’s addicting) after work, you get jealous at the awe-inspiring interior design of the houses featured. Then you see it, a wall-to-wall bookshelf completely filled with books and it looks amazing; it even has a ladder to reach the books at the top!
Bookshelves are a great opportunity to add character to any room. Here are some ideas to get that ideal bookshelf for your room:
Cut the clutter: orderliness is in these days and the best way to have your bookshelf looking organized is to not over-crowd it. Leave some space between each object on the bookshelf instead of cramming a bunch of objects on the shelf. Remember, less is often more!
Books books books: This seems obvious (it is a BOOKshelf after all), but utilize books. They will make any room or space look sophisticated. Don’t be afraid to arrange them in unique ways too – some standing upright and some on their backs.
Match styles: If you’re looking for a traditional look, use all traditional objects; it will give the bookshelf a look of unity.
