Arrangement


We're fortunate enough to have a bookcase six feet wide and six feet high with 4 shelves. We also have tons of books to put in it.

What arrangement is more aesthetically pleasing?

- Place the books on the shelves library style

- Arrange some books laying flat with some books standing upright

- One of the above and display a few items on the shelves

- Some other idea

Option #3 - Books flat and upright with interesting items on shelves, too. Some books could lean as well.

Wow! Great inspiration and thank you for the pictures.

It is plain to see the balance in the display, especially in the picture of the white shelf.

I have a lot more books than that, but by George, I think it will work

Hey edie, thanks for the pictures. You gave me a fantastic idea. I also love the idea of hanging frames inside the shelves. Thanks!
