If you love featuring small decorative accessories, trinkets, and baubles in your home interiors, then you’ll understand the importance of shelves. Without them, there is no place to highlight your ornamentation. So, if you’re searching for some clever and artistic shelf design ideas to enhance your home interiors, here are 5 to inspire you:
1. Part of the serve-ware cabinet
Everybody has a serve-ware cabinet in their dining areas and you can use a part of it to featuring some decorative items. Many people simply go for buffets or sideboards; their tops are the perfect featuring grounds for small accessories like vases, picture frames, candelabras, and more. However, you can also go for integrated ideas such as the tall one featured in this image.
2. Tall open shelves
Tower shelves are the height of trendy chic – especially open ones that emphasize verticality. These are used to emulate a sense of tallness within a space. You can find freestanding versions of these within the market to fill up empty corners, but they come across the best when they’ve been integrated within existing shelves such as the one featured in this image.
3. Statement shelves
Statement shelves are large and impactful – usually a part of a bigger system such as an extended media wall or the like. They’re also typically installed with glamorous cove lights that makes the accessories featured here feel like they’re part of an exhibit. The oversized square shelf featured in this image is an excellent example of such a design and definitely something that you can take inspiration from.
4. Horizontal shelves
Horizontal shelves are designed to break the monotony in simplified shelves and are a great way to imbue some glamour within your spaces. They’ve become quite common over the years and you can find them in almost every home in Singapore. The one featured in this image is a very stylish version and even has recessed lights for a more glamorous appeal.
