Keep Your Shelf Clutter-Free

Here's why you should keep your bookshelves clean and clutter-free.

I know, I know. Life gets busy, things get dusty and bookshelves get cluttered. Yet with so much abounding bookshelf inspiration, one can certainly find a style that works for them, right? Right.

Here's the deal. There are two reasons why bookshelves get cluttered:

1. You've got too many books. End of story.
Solution: Donate a few to the library. You'll feel better about yourself, and you'll be able to find your favorite titles again! Bonus.

2. You've got too little storage.
Solution: If this is the case and you can't seem to bid farewell to your favorite authors, invest in a few Billy bookshelves or something equally inexpensive. I once covered an entire wall with Billy bookshelves and loved the look more than anything else

3. The third reason bookshelves can get cluttered? You may just be lacking the right organizational inspiration.
Solution: Why not get creative with your bookshelves? Painted white, these shelving systems are both quirky and entirely functional, turning your books into a sculpture that acts as a focal point for the room. Better yet? Organize your books by color, or even turn those titles into table legs. You'll be basking in an organized collection in no time.
Good luck, bookworms!
