Add Decorative Objects

Unless you are going for a library look, adding decorative objects can often split up the look to make it look more modern and chic. Some great ideas we have seen are

  • World Globes

  • Pictures of your Family

  • Light up letter of your last initial

  • Using two objects as bookends

Emphasize One Colour

If you have a ton of books in one certain colour or the room your bookshelf is in is lacking that extra POP! Then try emphasizing on one colour in the bookshelf. Go for a bold colour so it stands out and keep it the same throughout.

Create a Colourful Bookshelf

Adding a pop of colour will liven up that boring and dust collector bookshelf in your Kelowna real estate. Try adding a splash of colour to the inside backs of the shelves. You can go bold and try one solid colour or go for a fun patterned look. Either way this will totally add that special touch that will keep you wanting to grab for a great book!
