The bookshelf has been the staple of living rooms for years. The often-elegant pieces of furniture provide an easy way to create a sophisticated atmosphere while also adding a unique aesthetic. Though the benefits are well-known, many homeowners may be unsure how about how to best make use of them, but according to the Star Tribune, by remembering a few simple tips it does not have to be too difficult.

Industry insider Jim Noble says that the first step to get an organized bookshelf is to remove all of your treasured tomes. Starting fresh is the most effective ways to have the best possible layout as it gives homeowners the opportunity to arrange their books in the best possible way.

"Balance is the object here," he told the news source. "Things should have the same visual weight."

For an added touch, designers suggest adding some lighter accessories such as framed photos or trophies to break up the long lines of books. Of course, keeping books in tip-top shape is crucial as well, and sunlight can have a significant negative impact on their condition, so proper window treatments area must.

Honeycomb cellular shades not only provide an effective barrier from the harsh rays of the sun, but they can also provide a subtle, elegant look to any room.
