Walls of Shelves: Love this Look?

Dressing up a bare wall with a large shelving unit can totally change the decor of a room – in a good way, of course! Not only does it enhance the open wall, but it provides endless decor options. You can fill with it colorful books of all shapes and sizes, souvenirs from your travels, family portraits, drawings and sculptures made by your children.

To take a few tips from the images above, you can put storage boxes – to have storage within storage, arrange canvas paintings, display collectibles, typography and to store your record collection.

As far as installation goes, you can install a built-in shelving system or just place a free-standing unit against the wall. Personally, I prefer the free-standing option, like these from Lucce at Interior Addict, because if I ever move – they can come along with me!

For those not interested in covering a whole wall in shelving, there are so many different shapes, sizes and arrangements available – the possibilites are really endless.

What do you think of shelving units – do you love this look?
