Which bookshelf is right for my space?
Whether you’re furnishing a home office or business, storage pieces can make all the difference in organization and productivity. Bookcases with doors and dividers can help minimize clutter along the open shelves, and bookshelves with cubbies work well for displaying knick-knacks and keeping bins of accessories nearby. If you’re short on floor space, a corner bookshelf placed in a nook, a shorter bookcase that fits underneath your work surface, or set of wall bookshelves that can be placed over your desk can help prevent you from feeling cramped. For a cohesive look across your office consider coordinating furniture collections that pair well together.
What items should go on my bookcase?
Are you ready to decorate? While shelving works well for freeing up your workspace, decorating a bookshelf—whether it’s a metal bookcase or wooden bookshelf—in ways that complement your décor can make your space look and feel more personal. Pair books and office supplies with vases, artwork and framed photos, and show off your accomplishments by adding a few of the awards you've earned. If you have small, miscellaneous items to store, you can use a decorative basket or fabric bin to keep them neatly tucked away together. Pairing a cube shelf with bins can help make your space look less cluttered and help you quickly find the items you need each day.
