Have a Stylish Living Area with these Current Modern Shelving Trends

Modern shelving options of today tend to focus more on white, with pops of color used as accents to make the room more stylish and hip. It is relatively close to the contemporary style that uses unexpected or unusual shapes. If you are thinking of giving these storage and display places or de-clutter or a little makeover, take your inspiration from the following trends.

One trend is modular shelving, which is essentially taking smaller components and making them larger. With bookshelves, this means taking smaller shelves and creating a large one out of them. Home improvement stores should have modular pieces in woods at various shapes that fit more budgets. Fit the shelves together and work with optional pieces like cabinets and drawers. You can just get the piece on your own and then just work on your skills and creativity to customize the size and shape of the shelf that you like.Another idea that you might want to get into is 3D shelves. Three dimensional shelves are popular for modern spaces as they add contrast and color to walls. These shelves come in an array of styles, even those that are shaped like specific letters, shapes, numbers and other elements. Their shelves hold a small number of items. Their shape gives them limited storage and display space but they make for great artworks on walls.

And then there are slanted shelves. True to its name, these shelves are designed to look like it will topple or fall over at any point, although they are actually properly weighed down. Years back, a look similar to this was called skew shelves. Each piece was slightly slanted with the pieces fitting together to create a solid shelf with alternating slating shelves. We are seeing designers today having the same look for their shelves, adding small pieces at the end of the shelves to keep your things from falling off.
