How to Arrange a Bookshelf


Learn how to style a bookcase with these simple
tricks. Line the back of the bookcase with decorative paper for a splash of color and
pattern. Start filling the shelves with books. Organize the books vertically at first, leaving
open at least a quarter of each shelf. To create a balanced composition, position a
wide group of books on opposite sides of neighboring shelves. Slide art prints behind various stacks
to add depth. Add horizontal stacks of books for variety. Fill the bottom shelf with large
catch-all baskets to corral extra clutter. Top the free standing piece with a collection
of related objects such as these shapely vases to fill the empty overhead space. In just
a few steps, this bookcase went from plain to wow. Now you know the secrets for styling
your own bookcases.

  1. probably i would keep some books horizontally in the quarter space which u left. the bookshelf also looks great if it is filled with books only.
