4. Decor Display
This one seems obvious but can be tricky. Appropriate decor would be smaller pieces like candles, figurines, vases that do not take up the entire space of the shelf. Allow some rooms on either the side or the top of the shelf.

5. Do Not Overcrowd the space
The worst thing you can do to a beautiful bookcase is to overcrowd every space you can possibly find on the shelf. This is bad for many reasons. First of all, the shelf might not be able to hold up all the weight, which could damage its structure later on. Secondly, it is a sore to the eyes. Allow some space for your eyes to capture each beautiful item you want to display.
