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.
How To Buy a TV Unit Consider the height of your TV Unit; when you are sitting on your sofa, you want your eyes to line up with half to two thirds up the screen. For example, for 40"+ TVs, it is best to look for units that range in height from approximately 300 - 550mm. There are, however, exceptions to every rule; if you have a very specific space or need for your TV then there are many options for higher or very low units. > Practicality & Style You will need to decide how much storage you will need for your components and DVDs etc. Make sure you measure your components before going shopping. Also think about what kind of look you want; do you mind if your components are on show or do you want them to all be hidden behind doors or glass? If they are going to be hidden, its important to make sure that your remotes will work through the glass/ doors. Are you planning to have your TV sitting on top of a TV unit or are you going to have it mounted to the wall? These are good questions to ask yourself in order to be able to narrow down your search. This will also help you to decide on what style you are after for your space. > Space & proportion If you have a large sitting room with a large sofa, balance it out with a long, narrow TV Unit. If you have the space, a wall unit can be a great way to incorporate your TV and media equipment neatly while becoming a feature for your home. If you have a small space to fill, a simple unit with practical drawers and media storage will do the job nicely. Look for designs that are fuss-free with no handles as to allow it to blend with your room and other existing furniture. The key to displaying your TV is to either centre it on a slightly longer unit or display it off-centre and balance it out with tall accessories or a floating shelf. These two options ensure the TV will look proportionate, no matter what size you decide to go with. 42" TV 42" TVs look great centred on smaller units to balance out the proportions of the TV.
