When you’re living in a small home, floor space is at a premium. You can only fit so many chairs, tables and accessories into a tiny room before it starts to feel like it’s going to burst at the seams.
That’s why we love wall shelves — they’re one of our favorite space-saving solutions. Instead of taking up valuable room on your floor, they take advantage of a home’s often underestimated vertical space
Take a look at our top 5 ways we like to use wall shelves, and get inspired to decorate your home!
Living. Tired of crowding your coffee table with all sorts of odds and ends? Clear the decks and put your favorite collectibles on display with wall shelves.
Bedroom. This decorative ledge almost looks like a mantel, but it’s much more versatile. Use this for an arrangement of your favorite pictures, or install over a desk or vanity to hold perfume and jewelry.
Office. Clutter piles up quickly in home offices. Use a wall shelf to get it up and off your desk and into organized compartments.
Kitchen. When you love to cook, it’s easy for your kitchen counters to start filling up with all sorts of stuff. Clear some room for serving and prep with a few well placed wall shelves. This is a great solution for small kitchens that don’t have very many cabinets, too!
Hallway. There’s no need to cram your entry console with framed pictures of your loved ones — give your hallway some breathing room and use a few wall shelves to open up floor space and draw the eye down your hallway.
