Bookshelves used to be a place that you just stored your books. You would stand every book up vertically and side-by-side on the shelf. Now you can add interest, personality and color to your bookshelves or bookcases.
Your bookcase can be a very special focal point in your home. You can combine your books with your art, candles and photos.
Candles and accessories add texture, eye appeal, and diversity to your bookcases. Adding the right color accessories to your bookcase help you to be able to include your color palette in your bookcase and throughout your room. Combine a variety of books in your bookcase. Some people like their bookcases to be very symmetrical. You can place your books standing straight up on one shelf and then have some books right next to them laying down horizontally. This adds to great deal of dimension and visual appeal.
Yet, on another shelf you may have vertical books all the way across that shelf from one side to the next. You can be very creative as you add different items and even collectibles to your bookshelf/bookcase. Regardless if you prefer to just have vertical books side by side or have books in combination with the special items in your home a bookcase will always add interest and personality to your room.
