Sometimes it is difficult to nail down exactly what a room is missing when it comes to decoration. If you own a shelf or bookshelf and keep books on it, cool bookends might be the finishing touch that your room deserves. They can provide a classy twist to any design or demonstrate a cute and funny aspect to your personality to make the room much more personalized.
The most common types of bookends are two letters, one on either side that stand for the initials of the decorator. These can come in many different designs but if you’re looking for something more different, you can go for animals as well. Dogs, lions, even fish are successful bookends.
The best part about bookends is that you don’t need books specifically to have them add decoration to your home. Do you find that you own a lot of DVDs and are tired of using drawer space in side tables to store them? Put up a shelf and display the DVDs you are proud to own, then use bookends to keep them standing. Do you feel like you don’t have enough books to justify bookends? Stand the books that you have up, then put something next to them like a tissue box, family picture, your favorite holiday statue, or a vase of flowers and put the bookends around those.
Bookends, whether metal bookends or indeed any form, don’t belong just in your living room either. They can be used in the kitchen with cookbooks, outdoors as a decoration, or in bedrooms for extra supplies that go up on shelves. Bookends are the perfect decoration statement because they can be used in so many different ways.
When selecting your cool bookends, the focus should be on style and how they’ll match the room they’re going in, as well as how heavy they are. If you are using them to prop up thinner books, you can use a simple design. If they’re going to hold up bigger books or heavier objects, the bookends should be made of heavy material to balance out the force of the leaning objects. Metal bookends are best suited for this.
No matter where they go, bookends make a great additional decoration to any room and can be the perfect finishing touch to any design.
