Tips for Styling Built-In Bookshelves 

Thinking about decorating your bookshelves with something other than books? Check out these styling tips to upgrade your built-ins:

1. Add a bowl of fruit! Something so simple can really add a pop of color.

2. Have a large row of built-ins? Try adding a sliding ladder. Choose a ladder with a different finish than the bookshelves.

3. Built-ins surrounding a fireplace are perfect to display firewood. Check it out below. 


4. There is no need to overcrowd a bookshelf. Try going for a minimalist look. 

5. Keep the color palette simple. Stick to the colors already in the room to ensure a beautiful simple design.
