Is there anything in life as simple and elegant as white? It just screams class, and it happens to look good with just about everything. That’s why we’re falling in love with these white shelves, which are sure to get you organized in high style.
Let’s say you followed Marie Kondo’s advice to the tee, and somehow your home still feels a bit...cluttered. Well, unless you’re a hermit, there’s probably quite a few things you can’t really afford to part with, and if that’s the case, you’re going to need some good storage. Shelving is a fantastic way to get everything out from underfoot and up to eye level. White shelves are good all-rounders: like a flowing wedding dress they can pack a visual punch, or like a simple canvas tote they can let the rest of your ensemble do the talking, while doing all the heavy lifting.
One particularly ravishing type of shelving: white floating shelves. These shelves are just perfect for the minimalist in all of us, they practically vanish, letting you show off whatever you chose to place on them. So this makes for a great pairing with your favorite novels or cherished family photos. You can also use them to create your own hanging gardens of sorts, with some charming ceramic planters.
If you need a little more storage space and tad more visual oomph, white shelves with untreated wood cabinets are the perfect blend of warm tones and serious stashing. These shelves don’t look out of place on the floor but can be placed on lower pieces of furniture or carefully hung for a super modern style. This is perfect for the living room: store your favorite records and movies on the shelves and use the cabinets to keep busy accessories out of the way.
