Styling Your Étagère
Less is More
Collect all items you have that can beautifully complement your étagère bookcase’s material. From them, select the key pieces. The arrangement below with the Hooker Furniture Home Office Crafted Bookcase is a perfect example of this.
Mix Different Sizes and Scale
Choose pieces that are of different sizes and heights. Selecting everything of the same height can look boring. You can stack books to make pedestals for some small heighted pieces. Have a look at Sligh Greystone Octavia Deck below.
Make it Personal
Try displaying things that are personal to you. For instance, you purchased a beautiful ceramic vase when out on a trip, or a hand-painted landscape while on a vacation, etc. They are eye-catching and remind you of those memories.
An étagère isn’t just a modern bookcase. The shelves end and the back are typically open i.e., it isn’t meant to be completely filled. If it is tall and narrow, display one large item per shelf, but if it is a bit wider, you may add more things to it.
Things to Display on Your Étagère
- Real and faux plants
- Ceramic vases
- Statues and figurines
- Magazine holders
- Small light fixture
- Pretty containers
- Framed photos and art
Start collecting your favorite pieces today and don’t let them sit in storage gathering dust when you have an option to use it and create an elegant, effortless, and personal style statement. Begin by placing books or large storage containers first. On the top shelf, arrange it all in a way that it isn’t from top to bottom. Fill in the open spaces with whatever that’s decorative. You can arrange all shelves likewise for symmetry and balance. Take an example from this beautiful Hooker Furniture Home Office Repose Bookcase.
