Bookcases aren’t just for books. They also offer the ideal space to display your favorite collection of bookshelf decor. Finding a place for everything, however, can pose a little bit of a puzzle – especially if you want to keep it from looking cluttered. Learn how to style bookcases and get the results you want with this guide.

1. Play around your space available

Something to bear in mind when learning how to style bookcases, is the importance of space. You don’t have to fill every shelf with books or bookshelf decor. To avoid over-styling, take into account visual weight. Keep some shelf space free to create lightness. Place trinkets on top of books and leave plenty of space around each item for a curated look.

2. Use More than one Shelf

To make a grand statement, place two identical bookcases next to one another or on either side of a focal point such as a fireplace or a TV stand. Keep in mind the size of your room so they don’t overwhelm the space. Remember that with an additional bookcase, you want to be extra careful not to add clutter just because you have more space.

3. Consider sorting by size of items

Organize the contents of your bookshelf by size. Place larger books and bookshelf decor on the bottom shelves and smaller ones with less visual weight higher up for a more balanced look. Use baskets to store additional items without cluttering up the shelves while adding texture and keeping their contents within easy reach.

4. Spice with a Few Plants

If you find your bookshelf decor is looking a little too stark, consider including a bit of greenery. Plants provide an organic element that helps to soften hard edges while making for a pretty bookcase. Don’t worry if you don’t have a green thumb, artificial plants will work just as well to add a little natural balance. Vases also give you the chance to regularly update the look with seasonal flowers.

5. Less is More

If you are just figuring out how to style bookcases, always remember that less is more. Bookshelves take up a large amount of space, making them a focal point in the room. So you want to prevent clutter and keep from overfilling the shelves. Arrange items in odd numbers to create a more balanced look and leave visual space to prevent clutter. Above all else, be sure to take a step back and edit.

6. Experiment with your favorite colors

When curating your shelves, consider colors. Whether you opt for monochrome, several different bright shades, or simply choose a neutral scheme – styling a bookcase with color is a fun way to go. Group books with the similarly toned spines next to a boldly pigmented figurine. Separate different hues into individual piles and arrange them across the bookcase. Pick one or two dominant colors and repeat them throughout the shelves. No matter which you choose, using color will hep you elevate your book collection.
