Spring cleaning! This is my favorite time to clean out my bookshelves, which, over the winter, seems to have collected both dust and clutter. It’s also the best time for me to do a bit of redecorating. After all, having a clean, stylish bookshelf is more appealing, plus reading becomes more enticing if all the books and magazines are organized.
Bookshelf redecorating doesn’t have to be time-consuming or expensive—you only need to change up your style a bit for a more attractive bookshelf.
Use boxes/jars/collections to break up the steady array of books.
Don’t jam everything back into your bookshelf right after dusting! The quickest way to spice up your bookshelf is to add visual appeal by breaking up the horizontal wall of books. Grab your craft box and place it in the middle of one shelf and then put the books back in. You can also use a clock, jar, or your collection of trinkets for this project. Vases or framed photos of you and your family also work well for your shelves.
Aside from giving your shelves a visual break, inserting objects between your books adds charm to the bookcase while keeping a cozy appearance. This tip also infuses decorative flair into your rooms that you can match with your interior design.
