Bookshelves and Wall Units - Tips For Decorating Them Have your bookshelves become an eyesore rather than the important design element they should be? Bookshelves often end up becoming a catch-all for unrelated objects. With a little bit of planning and the creative use of accessories they can become an important design feature. Here are some tips for how to arrange bookshelves. - If you have matched sets of books then put them together on the lower shelves, stacked side by side, to create a solid foundation. If you do not have matched sets, then group books of similar size together on the bottom shelf. - On the middle shelves arrange groupings that include accessories and books. The accessories could include a small piece of art on an easel, decorative plates or bowls, candles, statues or other collectables. - For added interest make sure each grouping includes a variety of heights. Lay a couple of small books down on their side, next to a tall vase or candle holder. Also try to include a variety of shapes. - Add color with candles or plants to your groupings. Include a variety of textures including wood and glass and metal all in one grouping. - If you have oversized books too tall for the shelf they can be placed flat with other books stacked on top of them. - All of the books should be brought to the front edge of the shelf for a neat, uniformed look. - It is usually a good idea to remove the dust jackets and display the books binding. - Use the top one or two shelves to display art or other accent pieces. This will help create a balanced display. An organized and balanced arrangement can make your bookshelves a beautiful design element. Keep them feeling fresh by using seasonal items as part of the presentation. Click here to see ideas for decorating with accessories.
Consider Purchasing An Entertainment Wall Unit - You Are Not In College Any Longer If you know of a college student, then swing by their apartment and take a look at the furniture in the room. I am sure that you will find pieces that do not match, pieces that have one or more food stains and pieces that look like they were left on the curb for the last garbage pick-up. So answer this question - does your living room furniture look like you are still in college? If your TV and DVD player are still sitting on upside down milk crates, then it may be time to start shopping for a real entertainment wall unit. Your situation may not be as extreme as previously mentioned, but if you are out of college or just working full time, then you really have no excuses for beat up old furniture. Think about it, the way your home looks reflects the kind of person you are. Do you want people really thinking that your idea of a TV wall unit are milk crates and a board you nailed into the wall? Now, before you jump online or run to your nearest furniture shop you should take a few things into consideration. After all this is a pretty big purchase and not something that you will want to take lightly. An entertainment wall unit should not only be physically appealing, it needs to be structurally sound as well. The last thing that you want is to have that nice TV come crashing down because of shoddy workmanship. If you have a lot of heavy things you plan on placing in your new entertainment wall system, then you probably want to steer clear of any flimsy material like particle board being held up by a few nails or screws. If you have such things as a big screen TV or stereo receiver complete with a surround sound speaker system, then take a look at the material that the unit you are considering buying is made out of. Go through the product to see how it is constructed and how it is rated quality wise. Is it real wood or is it cheap particle board? What materials are being used to hold all of the pieces together? Nothing would ruin a nice night watching DVDs than to have your large TV bend and break the shelf that it is on. While the material used in making TV wall units is of great concern, you should also look at what you plan on placing in it and on it. Does the color of your TV and other electronic items match? Are they too large and heavy for your entertainment wall system? Is there a chance that it may bend and break? Ask yourself these questions before making the leap to buy an entertainment wall unit. Dont take any chances that you next big purchase will end up costing you even more should it collapse and cause your precious electronics to fall and break.
