Tips for Buying Antique Shelves

Antique shelves may sound basic, but they can add an amazing charm to your modern furniture. Choosing the right antique shelf can completely upgrade the look of your house. Here are some tips to keep in mind while choosing the right antique shelf for your house:

Purpose
Know your purpose before you start exploring the various options. Antique shelves come in different sizes, storage space, and mounting abilities. If you are thinking of purchasing an antique shelf to increase your storage space, the right option for you would be a free-standing shelf. On the other hand, if you are looking for something to use as a showcase, then a smaller two-tier shelf would fit better.

Paint and Colour
Antique shelves may not always match the overall look of your home in terms of colours used. If you are a person who likes everything to match, you can always opt for painting the antique shelf that you like.

Space
If the amount of space available for you to install a shelf is small, opt for a wall-mounted shelf. This gives you leg space on the floor and allows the room to look more spacious rather than cluttered. It also gives you some storage space on the shelves.
 
Antique shelves can be the best option to increase your storage space while making the room look much neater. They also enhance the overall décor of your room and allow you to play around with colours as well to make your room look smaller or bigger, based on your requirements.
 
In conclusion, keeping in mind the purpose, paint and colour, and space can help you choose the perfect antique shelf for your home. It's a great way to add charm and upgrade the look of your modern furniture.
