In a child’s room, a short cube bookshelf makes for an easily accessible spot for toys, games, and favorite picture books. Giving children their own storage options fosters independence and encourages proper cleanup. In addition, you can provide them with comfortable seating near a lamp and a plush rug for storytime. The right bookshelf can also double as a playroom for your children. They’ll love the convenience of being able to access their own books and toys.
Bookcases make great display spaces, too. Using accessories as bookends will add color and visual interest to your bookshelf. Color-blocked bookshelf decor is another great way to create visual interest. Also, you can arrange books by spine color. And, if your children are the artistic type, you can place their favorite books on an odd-numbered spine, so that they face the wall. Using potted plants to decorate your bookshelves will add some color and style.
Choose a bookcase that fits your home decor. Wall-mounted bookshelves are easy to install and can be repositioned in the same room. While modern versions of wall-mounted shelves may not be portable, they do add a little pizzazz to a room. Make sure to buy a sturdy shelf for your books. You’ll also need to consider the weight of your books. If you’re planning on moving the bookcase, you’ll want to make sure that it is stable.
