5 Simple But Super Effective Shelving Ideas

Maintenance & Repair

image for 5 Simple But Super Effective Shelving Ideas 

 

Shelving is a great accessory to have in your home, especially when decorated right. But sometimes you may find yourself unable to decide which items deserve a place on your shelves, or which pieces compliment each other.

 

Here we have 5 easy to achieve solutions, which require little effort and time.

 

 

 

1. Empty Picture Frames

If you have any picture frames already in your possession, take them out and see if they will go well with each other. If they don't, or you require more picture frames, head to your nearest store for more.

 

It's best if they all vary in shapes and sizes, so you get a more interesting and quirky end result when you place them on your shelves. If you can't seem to find frames with the colours you had in mind, purchase simple white ones and paint them yourself.

 

Once you have all the frames you need, remove everything except the bare frame. Then, arrange them randomly on your shelves, even overlapping some if you'd like. Add tiny ornaments next to them if you'd like more variety of items on your shelves.

 

 

 

2. Display Your Passion

Another option we suggest is to be brazen about your passion. Your home is after all an expression of yourself, so what can beat showing the world what you're most passionate about inside. it could be anything, really.

 

If you're fond of gardening, turn your shelves into a mini garden with vases of flowers or terrariums. You could even build a little cacti garden with small wooden crates and put them on display. If you're into photography, put out some of your favourite snaps, and even add a vintage camera or two into the mix.

 

This one is really up to your own creativity honestly, but we ensure it will serve as an extremely fun solution to work on since it revolves entirely around your passion.

 

 

 

3. Boxes Or Baskets

Open shelving can also be used for storage, it's convenient to just grab things off the shelves whenever you need them. It can get messy though, if you simply pile your little odds and ends on your shelves.

 

The best solutions we can offer are colour coordinated boxes or baskets. Sort the items you wish to store into categories, and then place them in various boxes or baskets, before labeling them with a simple sticker label.

 

This keeps it neat, while adding colour to your shelves as well. You can easily locate your items since they're labelled, and you don't have to rummage through the depths of your storeroom anymore just to get them.

 

 

 

4. Objects You Currently Own

This solution helps you save a great sum of money. If you think you have to specifically head out just to purchase a bunch of items to decorate your shelves, you're thoroughly wrong. If you dig through the boxes in your storeroom, you'll definitely be able to find lots of kinick knacks that have decorative purposes.

 

Gather them all and pick out those you think don't look dated. Try to pick items that have a similar theme or colour palette, so it will look cohesive when they're placed on the same set of shelves. It will be like a walk down memory lane with this solution, and you may even manage to find memorabilia you never knew existed.

 

 

 

5. Glass Jars

Glass jars are gorgeous on its own, but they can be made even more beautiful and used for decorative purposes. Think of the vibes you want out of them, depending on your home's theme, and then you decide what to fill them with.

 

Let's say your home is brightly coloured and a little quirky. You could put little snacks into the jars and make the whole collection look as colorful as possible. Get sweets, chocolates, gum balls and even biscuits, in an assortment of colour, and then sort them into the jars before placing them on the shelves. It will look gorgeous, like a mini candy store.

 

If you want something a little more simplistic, you could use many other options. Tiny wooden ornaments, plain coloured marbles, black pencils, or even porcelain figures. These are a mere fraction of the available options, and you simply have to head out and scour for more. We're sure a trip to the mall will fuel you with lots of inspiration for this solution.
