How To Decorate Empty Shelving

Having extra storage is great for when you get unexpected new items. Before that point though? Not so great. Although it may look amazing when filled, empty shelving can sometimes stand out like a sore thumb in a busy room. The solution to this problem isn’t to tone down the rest of the room, although that can help- it’s to fill the space with something else. You may be wondering just what could fill the space, if it’s not something that needs to be stored. There are several different ways to go about it, but adding decoration to your empty shelving is the only way forward on the quest for the perfect room.


First off, pick a style. It’s important to keep your style consistent throughout a room, so try to match whatever decorations you choose with the feel of the rest of the area. Be especially mindful of colour combos; bold colours can add personality to a drab and boring shelving unit. Not to mention that bright colours look amazing in front of shelving. To decide on the right look for you, you may need to look around on the internet. Often, great style doesn’t come naturally. So don’t be ashamed if you need to browse websites such as Pinterest or YouTube for a little bit of inspiration before you get cracking.


When decorating shelving, keep it clean and simple. Nobody wants an eyeful of mess, or even worse, shelving so busy that it takes a good few minutes to look over everything on there. Photos, plants, vases and books are a good starting point, even if they’re already stored somewhere else. You’d be surprised how quickly an empty shelf can suddenly look full of life again. Simply whack a photo and a couple of fancy candles in there and, voila, that’s most rooms sorted!
