1. Style with Books
Designer and travel books are trendy right now. A couple of them on the shelf would be enough to draw attention if you are not a huge fan of reading or collecting books. After all, it is a bookshelf.
2. Play with Plants
This is probably plants lovers' favorite. Styling a shelf with plants is on-trend right. From succulents to monstera, house plants bring texture and dimension to your home like no other. From bud vases to terrariums, a hint of nature will create a pleasant vibe around your living space.
3. Add Sentiments
A bookshelf is a great place to showcase your personal and sentimental items like photo frames or souvenirs. They will make your bookcase unique like no other.
4. Display Decorative Objects
This one seems obvious, but it can be tricky. The appropriate decor would be smaller pieces like candles, figurines, and vases that do not take up the entire shelf space. So, allow some room 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 could 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 sore to the eyes. so, allow some space for your eyes to capture each beautiful item you want to display.
