3 Things You Can Do To Decorate Track Shelves

Anything can look pretty with a little design upgrade!


No storage unit is more practical than built-in shelves when you want to save space in your home. However, they can be plain and boring: the stainless steel standards, industrial looking brackets, and let’s not forget the plain, dull shelves. When not decorated right, it could ruin the over-all feel and look of your space.

If you’re planning to install one at home, here are some tips that can help you spruce up these storage must-haves:

Black it out 

Painting the shelves and the hardware with dark paint has two benefits: it can make your display stand out in a good way or blend-in with the rest of your interiors to give the illusion of a bigger space.

Put up art 

The walls in between the shelves can look pretty dull. To avoid this, hang framed paintings or photographs in between the shelves and the brackets. Doing this not only livens up the area but adds personality to your space, too.

Add a touch of greenery 

Whether it is plants or flowers, it's always a good idea to add greens to liven up your space. Distribute a couple of pots of plants, flowers, or succulents through the different levels of the shelf.
