Tips Decorating Book Shelves

* Ensure A Good Fit – When purchasing a bookcase, make sure your tallest volumes will fit and add extra horizontal feet – more than you think you will need to allow for growth and breathing room in the display.
* Consider Proportion – If you want to access your books without step stool, look for a unit with top shelf that is no higher that 6 to 6 1/2 feet from the ground. Play with the heights of adjustable shelves to create more interesting display.
* Create A Custom Look – Give a plain shelving unit the appearance of a built-in by painting it the same color as the wall and adding crown molding.
