Unique Shelving Ideas in Your House

Share |

You own a house or an apartment, you have many precious and creative items around you, with you that make you happy, make you feel good any time when you see them, look at them, or take and have them for some time. However, the question comes to your mind, “Where I can keep my precious and memorable things at home? Do I have enough space for them? Are there enough shelves? And if I have the shelves will they match the design in the room?” Shelving the walls of your place of living is a good idea, because the shelves do not take really much space, they are on the wall. The space in the room will not be occupied and you can furnish the room as much as you want.

As a homeowner, you will be probably proud of your respective homes and will display the items on the shelves. When you have items that are worth displaying, they deserve a display worthy shelf to be set on. There can be display pieces that are heirlooms, DIY curios, books that are read to you and so many other display pieces that the mind can dream up.

Unique Shelves Collection

Here you will find some things that will inspire you, will give you the ideas and make your home a better place to live. You will see a collection with the best bookshelves that are gathered here in this post.


This multi-sized shelves design called the Quad Bookcase can store your CDs, DVDs, folders and books all in one clever product. For even more storage space, separate units can be joined together. Assymmetry in a perfect balance!

Whole Wall Shelf

In this picture a whole wall was used for this interesting bookcase, and the final result is a quite unique bookcase, at least for some people it might be useful and quite functional.


The storyline shelf s designed by Frederik Roijé and it is an excellent solution to store your books in a modern way. Sound finds a physical identity in the beautifully crafted Storyline bookshelf. By first processing a word into sound waves, the physical shape is then mirrored in powder-coated steel, using an explicit folding technique. Appropriately enough, the word that inspired this lovely piece was “bliss”.


This is an interesting idea to store books, magazines, and DVDs is called by his creator Bookworm, designed by Ron Arad. The bookworm is made from plastic, which can be shaped into any form desired. Each upright can support 20 pounds, and it is suggested that the bookworm be mounted in a curved design to increase capacity. This idea can be also very useful for small places, where a bookcase is excessively large. In conclusion, the Bookworm is a great product that also can make your home more spacious.


Skateboard shelf is a piece of furniture that every skateboard lover would tell you that it is awesome. I know that because last month I have met someone who is in love with skateboarding, and he fell in love with this piece of furniture. Perfect for students and kids, it provides substantial storage space for books, display and even skateboard paraphernalia.

Lovely Rita

Lovely Rita is an unusual bookshelf. What you see first is just an arranging books on this bookshelf that could be a real adventure. Lovely Rita can live as a single shelf or be repeated endlessly by combining additional units, becoming a bookcase of the desired length. Its special shape allows two different figures to be designed on the wall, according to the direction of fixing.


Clean lines and a modern transparent design characterize the glass shelves. The glass shelves have different sizes allowing you to make all kinds of combinations, from storing books, DVDs, souvenirs, and etc.

Shelves with Bench

Now this design might look cool for the eye, but I do not think you can stay too relaxed in that space, I would rather stay in a comfortable chair. The “Shelves with a Bench” was designed by Stanislav Katz, a designer from Latvia.


Lodge is a modular bookcase that obtains a high degree of personalization, since it is formed from blocks of equal height that allow a free composition. At this modular bookcase it is possible to enlarge the height of the bookcase from new modules as more space is needed for storage. It presents different compartments, suitable as much for books as for complements and decorative pieces.


Dedalo bookcase is designed by Marconato & Zappa and is manufactured by Porada. The Dedalo Bookcase has a modern design and it can be used as a room divider or center against the wall. This uniquely designed bookcase features five round combined squares with round corners, that allows you to store a lot of things, in various ways.

Felt Clock

If you would like a modern shelving solution then Cosmo shelves are the ideal solution. As you can see from the pictures, these shelves have squares and rectangles shapes with rounded corners. The shelves are easy to mount, and you can arrange the rectangles and squares and create a unique art gallery or modern bookshelf.

Felt Clock

Hanging shelves are an innovative storage design for your items. This system cannot replace a whole bookcase, but two of three systems of storage like this could be fun to hang somewhere in your home.
