Bookshelf Storage

Bookshelves are great for storing books as well as other knick-knacks.

Here are some ways to create interest and organization…

  1. Alternate stacking books horizontally as well as vertically.

  2. Stack figurines or other decorative items on top of horizontal books

  3. Have photo frames in front of the books.

  4. Do not put too many tschotkes on one shelf together, disperse them to different shelves.

  5. Put similar types of books together on one shelf or in one area of the shelving.
  • Religious

  • Kids

  • Mystery

  • Textbooks

  • History

  • Biographies

  • Miscellaneous

6. You can also get holders for magazines that you are saving. We save our National Geographic magazines so we have special holders for those, but you can always get a non-specific magazine holder to make it look more appealing.

7. If you have enough space, a great way to showcase a book that you enjoy is to have it on a book stand or easel, open to maybe a favorite chapter or picture within the book.

Til next week,
