Anything that provides enough space for your all books should be fine, right? Well, not all the time.
Clear a large area on the floor in front of the shelving you want to get organized. Empty off the bookshelf you are working on. Try to keep your books piled in a smaller area since you will need your open floor space for the next the next step. Categorize your books. There are a number of methods for handling this. Some people choose to create a filing system for their home ordering their books by author, title, and subject. If an alphabetized system is what you are looking for choose this road. If you are looking for more general divisions try fiction and nonfiction, books you have read and books waiting to be read. If you are organizing more for aesthetic appeal you may want to order your books by color or height.
Firstly, you should decide whether you wish to keep the books vertically or horizontally. Some bookshelves allow the books to be placed horizontally, while others allow them to be kept vertically, while yet others come with changeable shelves, so that you can decide how to keep them.
Organizing your shelving more for the aesthetic appeal? Follow these quick tips for making your shelving pop! Paint the inside of your bookcase a couple shades darker in the same color you have painted your room. The color will make whatever you have on your shelves stand out. Remember a few visually interesting items can make a big statement, no need to fill up your shelves with decorative items. You can also try grouping collectables of the same color together for a statement. A group of glass or white porcelain vases of different shapes and sizes can be very interesting against a pop of color.
