Add some visual interest by avoiding mirror imagery. Hang things asymmetrically in odd numbers, shelves of three, five, or even seven.

I like how this display mixes up vintage and traditional elements with more modern bits (like the patterns found on the plates juxtaposed against the classic and classy bird cage art.)

12. Everything in Its Place

I really like this one: moving kitchen shelving away without necessarily just shoving everything behind closed cupboard doors. Here’s proof that kitchen shelves can be both functional and gorgeous.

14. Dining Room Design

Look past those lime green table runners to the shelves behind. I think this shelf display adds a fantastic personal touch to a room that can often feel bland and impersonal.

Three cheers for choosing kitchen dishes meant for use and display. Don’t these shelves look inviting?

16. Mirrored Back

Add an eye-catching element to your shelves to spice things up. like this mirrored backing or the brightly patterned wallpaper.

17. Change One Thing

Switch out your basic support brackets for something a little more interesting, like the ribbon brackets pictured here. I think they really contribute a certain je ne sais quoi!

18. Stacked Table Display

What about having the actual shelves themselves contribute to the display? This shelving unit is actually composed of three identical tables stacked and secured. I love the drama it adds to the room, don’t you?

19. Wallpaper Love

Why not wallpaper the shelves themselves? I think it’s a fun departure from painted and plain, plus it ties things together so nicely with the color scheme above.
