7 How-To Tips to Help Style Your Bedroom Shelves

Even for the more experienced interior stylists among us, when it comes to decorating our bedroom shelves, getting the balance just right can be quite the challenging task. But with a few tricks and a little guidance, creating a stylish and personalised display can be a simple and satisfying task, transforming your space within minutes. Presenting our 7 part guide to your perfect bedroom shelf:

Start from Scratch

7 How-To Tips to Help Style Your Bedroom Shelves

To get the best out of your shelving unit, you must be prepared to start from scratch. Take everything off the shelves, clean them up completely and begin with a blank canvas. Clearing the way enables you to focus on each shelf individually without being distracted by other clutter. Placing all your shelf accessories together in a pile also helps you take inventory of what you have and what may be missing.

Here are some amazing sideboard ideas you’d want to try.

Choose a Colour Scheme

Unified and polished or bold and ‘out-there,’ how you choose to colour your shelf is entirely up to you. All bedroom sideboard styling strategies need a palette or theme, a simple method to really place your stamp on your design.

While you certainly don’t have to be super-strict with your colour scheme a general overarching theme that ties your entire bedroom look together will make for a unifying finish.

Fill in the Gaps

Here’s where the decorative process becomes more like an art than science. Gather your remaining decorative items and carefully fill in the middle areas of your shelves to create a more layered look. There will be a little trial and error involved but experimentation is part of the enjoyment. Put things in place, see how they look and determine if you like them as they are or need to relocate them.

There are also a few guidelines you should keep in mind here:

Remember, variety is key. Try to vary the size, shape, and height of your bedroom shelf decorations to make them look more collected and interesting. Simply adding similar objects together might not bring out the ‘pop’ you’re aiming for.

You can also add repeaters to unify your shelves. These are the kind of decorations that repeat throughout your display to add consistency. There are no rules for this, so get creative.

Excellent

I am very happy with my wardrobe. Everything looks amazing, easy to assemble, perfect fit and well made. Delivery and installation were flawless. My bedroom has never looked better.

These shelves are exactly what we wanted.

These shelves are exactly what we wanted.

They look fabulous in or bedroom love the design and very good quality and very solid. They were really easy to assemble but you do need two people as they are heavy. I will definitely be recommending Tylko to friends and family and would buy shelves again as we are delighted with the finished product and the service.

Absolutely fabulous!

Absolutely fabulous!

Great to feel you have some input into the design and that your shelf is a bit different from others. Love the colours, the quality of the build and the way everything was packed and labelled to make building simple. Required a bit of physical input to get the pieces into position but think that it's unlikely to ever fall to bits! Only problem I had (of my own making) was that the unit was large and nearly completely fitted the floor which made getting it difficult to get it upright. Also, because it was large it was also heavy (testament to the quality of the materials) so needed some professional lifting help to get it into place. None of this is a negative reflection on Tylko. I'm now planning the next unit for the bedroom!

the perfect size for my space

the perfect size for my space

This chest of drawers is my fifth Tylko unit. I have an awkwardly shaped bedroom and the customisation of the Tylko units have enabled me to fit to the available space perfectly. I managed to make the unit entirely single handed.

Very well made

Very well made

Well made flat pack product, took quite a bit of hammering and strength to fit all together, but end product is very sturdy. Good instructions and great felt covered protector board provided for hammering, nice touch. Space is limited for us so I chose a set of drawers that fit under the bed perfectly

Stunning engineered shelving!

Stunning engineered shelving!

We are extremely pleased with our shelves. They not only look fantastic but the build instructions are the most straightforward I have seen. Despite being nervous when six boxes of parts were delivered each part was clearly labelled and the instructions easy to follow. Each part has been engineered to fit perfectly - I don’t think built in shelves would be any better. Two people are required to construct the unit but we did manage to build the top half upright due to the lack of floor space. We have already started designing our next unit for the next bedroom remodel....
