There’s one area full of potential but often forgotten in the style stakes.
Adding shelving to your living room wall will bring the space to life and allow you to display art and meaningful objects that make your house a home.
Think of it as a three-dimensional gallery space in one of the most used rooms in the house. Adding even a single shelf gives extra depth and decoration to the space with the flexibility to add and take away art and objects for the look and feel you want to create.
For best results, seek out floating shelves that are attached to the wall with an internal mounting block to avoid brackets or anchor points interrupting the look of your display. Alternatively, choose hanging designs where the mechanism to secure the shelf and carry the load forms part of the decor.
Limit the strain on your purse strings by creating a wall of art or series of vignettes using pieces you already own.
