We all love to come back to a beautiful home. Homes are designed to be welcoming, comfortable, and safe. For a very long time, humans have found innovative ways to decorate the home using different items. Although it makes the house look aesthetically appealing, most home decors are surprisingly expensive to put together.
An often overlooked item that can help beautify a home is booked. That’s right, books! You may find this a bit extreme, especially if you’re not much of a reader yourself, but books can add a modern, minimalistic appearance to a space. Using decorative books is a good way to incorporate books into your lovely home space.
They are created and designed to serve a purpose; to beautify your home! If this sounds like something you would love to try out, here are easy, simple, and beautiful ways to use decorative books in your home.
Decorative books as risers
This may seem a bit unconventional, but it can transform your home’s beauty. Ever traveled and came back with a miniature souvenir and felt it probably doesn’t fit your home as a decorative piece? Well, with decorative books, you can magnify their presence by elevating in on these decorative books.
Depending on the object’s size, you can stack up two to four decorative books on top of each other and place the item on it. The books would act as a natural base for the item and be more obvious in that space. The good thing is that it goes well with any object. Candles, flowers, bowls, lamps, etc.
Impressive book collections
There’s just something remarkably appealing about book collections. You also don’t have to feel guilty about buying books you probably would never read. Decorative books come readily to the rescue as they give you the feel of both worlds. With decorative books, you don’t have to settle for the same bland colored books. Be creative and add some colors while you’re at it!
Fill up unwanted gaps
No matter how perfectly you design your home, there would be a piece of furniture or decor with a bit of gap to the side or above it. Decorative books can help save the day by acting as fillers. Is there a bookshelf with little books on it? Decorative books can help close up the space until you get more books.
Brighten your home
The good thing about decorative books is that they come in different shapes, sizes, and, most importantly, colors! No matter the room’s color, there are always corresponding or contrasting colored decorative books to help brighten the space.
Your home will always be your safe space. A lot of planning goes into making it a safe and beautiful space. One inexpensive way to beautify your home is with decorative books. Knowing how to incorporate these pieces can easily turn your home into a beautiful piece of art. With decorative books, you can either fill up bookshelves to make it seem like you’ve got a large collection of books or use them as a center decorative piece of art.
