A buyer’s guide to multipurpose shelves to decorate your home this Eid.
As Eid Ul-Fitr is approaching, people have started to deep cleanse their houses and with coronavirus looming over our heads, deep cleansing has become a regular activity.
Alongside deep cleaning every nook and cranny of a house before Eid, many opt to buy new furniture for the festive occasion. While some prefer to change smaller bits of furnishing around the house, some prefer to replace whole sets with newer, trendier ones.
However, with a deadly virus encircling our surroundings, furniture stores in Bangladesh have leaned more towards e-commerce. People can now purchase furniture of their choice through the website and have it delivered to their doorsteps.
For this Eid, if you plan on purchasing a new piece of furniture, a multi-purpose shelf can be the one. These shelves can be used for a variety of purposes and also serve to add a hint of beautification to the house.
If you plan on keeping just books on the shelves, mixing up the book placement can add layers of textures to a simple arrangement of books. Try a mix of vertical and horizontal arrangements. Do this both within the same shelf and then also try mixing up the way entire shelves are arranged so that one shelf is all horizontal and another is all vertical.
Try arranging your books by colour. Unless you have a collection of thousands of books, it should not be very difficult to arrange them by colour.
Add in pieces of decorative objects. Think sculptural. A beautiful bowl, plate or even a stack of boxes can add to the variety.
You can always incorporate organic materials on your shelves. A bowl filled with rocks, a sea fan, a beautiful seashell or even an air plant is small bits of beautifying trinkets that speak volumes. Adding light coloured accessories on a dark shelf can set off the natural light and give the shelves a soft look.
Artworks are another quaint addition to make your shelves look less boring. You can prop small art pieces on the shelves and even hang larger pieces on the shelves themselves for a classic English library look.
Confused about where to place the shelf in your room to make it look good? If your bookcase is tall, you should place it in a spot of the room that is well spaced from the other tall items. For example, if you have floor to ceiling shelf, placing it away from the doors and curtains will make the room look spacious.
For the picture-perfect shelf decorating, resist the urge to pack in accessories on every shelf. Keep a clean look by choosing a one-colour or tone-on-tone scheme for vases and figurines, and make sure to mix up shapes. Every so often, step back to assess the overall balance of your arrangement. Place items off-centre, or try larger or smaller ones until you like what you see.
Mod decor shelves call for a sparse look, so group together a small set of books that are all of fairly uniform size. Accessorize with streamlined vases and metallic decor, leaving lots of open space on shelves to let the accessories shine through. Give the whole shelving unit a pop with a smart-colour backdrop.
Do not forget the power of bookends when decorating bookcases! Use heavy, sturdy decor as a bookend to keep shelves neat and organized. Bookends especially come in handy for paperbacks and slimmer books, which are less likely to stay upright.
To make the shelves look nice, you will need to buy one. With the ongoing wave of discounts, now is the perfect time to splurge on a multi-purpose shelf and give your home a dainty look.
