When you decorate, do not forget to think about the function of the library. Do you need a large library to store a lot of books? Or do you have some room left to arrange some decorative items on the shelves? Decorating the bookshelves in the library, with books and decorative objects at a time, is a great idea. In case you have room between the books, use your decorative objects to fill the empty space. Vases, statuettes, paintings: these are the objects that will help you create a beautiful decoration. The successful balance is a very important element and the symmetry can really help you accentuate the decor of your living room. Try to create symmetry between books and decorative objects that you have stored on your library. Keep your storage, if possible, as simple as it is elegant.

And when it comes to empty spaces ... If you can afford to leave part of the shelf empty, you'll easily create an elegant minimalism effect. This is particularly valid for small rooms because having too many objects makes them seem even less spacious. On the contrary, a little empty space will help you create the illusion of a larger and more airy room.

And since the primary function of libraries is the storage of books, we must learn how to organize them well. What you can always do is leave some books tilted on the shelves. Try to change their usual position to create a more original decor. So, in case your shelves are high enough, try to leave, in the middle of each shelf, an inclined book and use it as a platform for a chosen decorative object. Repeat this type of storage on multiple shelves to create symmetry.

Color is another element that can help you make your library more original. No matter what type of decor you want to create with color, having nuances on your library is a very good idea. In case the piece needs a focal point and simplicity, try a selective color palette. Choose a maximum of two or three shades and try to incorporate them into the decor of your library.
