The appearance of your home is a big deal because that is the space you choose to come back to every day and call home. You should like every inch of the place where you spend the most time. This is why people spend so much money, time, and effort in decorating their homes. Sometimes the decoration can go hand in hand with raising the utility and functionality of a space. For example, wall shelves are a great way to decorate your home while making space to keep essential things and decorative items!
One way to do this on a budget is through DIY wall-mounted shelves. There are so many creative ways to build your own wall-mounted shelves. Even if you don’t want to go the DIY route, there are many shelves available on the online market that are super cost-friendly which are essential, but can be used in extraordinary ways by applying a little imagination. If not placed strategically, these shelves might end up doing the opposite of what they are supposed to and ruin the entire feel of the place.
These wall-mounted shelves can be of great utility in so many places at your house. Besides using the shelves for decorative purposes in your living room and dining room, you can also use them in the kitchen, bathrooms, kid’s rooms and bedrooms.
Floating wall shelves are an excellent idea for the kitchen since there is so much in that room that needs organizing. In a kitchen, without proper shelves, things can go haywire. This is why DIY wall mounted shelves are a great way to keep things nice and tidy. There are many ways to do this. You could repurpose the wood from other furniture into shelves and mount them to the kitchen walls. This way, you’ll have more space to keep all the necessary items in the kitchen that you need by your hand instantly.
Even in the kid’s room, it works not strictly as decoration but also as a utility item. Kids have things like toys, books, and personal items that need arranging and organizing and a place to put. You could take the initiative and personalize the room in your kid’s image with their own favorite things as themes. The shelves just help with that, since you can put things there which remind your kid of everything they love.
There are different design ideas that you can implement in not just the kitchen and the kid’s room but everywhere in the house. The best part about DIY shelves is that you’re only limited by your imagination. These ideas include hiring your own carpenter and having them make the shelf you want from scratch.
