REPETITION IS KEY
Have you ever wondered how retail stores can still look so tidy despite numerous items on its shelves? The secret to this trick is repetition. You can buy your items in pairs or more to maximise visual appeal. Displaying multiple one-off items can make your space look cluttered, and sometimes a single item may look lost among your bookshelves. Once you know what to get, you can have fun arranging the pieces – they don’t have to be right beside each other all the time! Just see for yourself in the picture below.
A pretty common problem that you might face would be shelves with items lined up all the same height. There may be exceptions to this rule, but more often than not it just makes the area look flat and boring. So if you’ve looked at a shelf but couldn’t give a reason why it looked off, not varying heights is probably one of the causes.
