Looking for a modern look? Try the asymmetrical shelf. Put everything in order, horizontally. Make sure the end of the board creates straight line. If possible, make continuous line with the other furniture such as cabinets or drawers.

Dive in into the concept by adding square, rectangular or hexagon photo frame on the board. Minimize any curved or rounded figurine. For taller rooms, fill the storage space with tall vases or books, in a manner where all the heights are almost filled.

Some house designers leave spaces in between the window. This space is usually the place for small phone desk or decorative pot. For living room, adding table in the middle of two windows will only make the room looks smaller.

Instead of space consuming item, you can put vertical wall shelf. Choosing contrastive or similar color of the wall and the shelf will not make a big difference. To meet the decorative purpose, combine the big and small items on the shelf.

Corner of the living room is the most difficult place to transform. It is the darkest and the least place people will look at. However, it holds the potential to be a useful part. Take triangle board and install it there. Paint the boards white to add the contour.
