Alternative to Ikea Shelves...

Emmanuelle's picture

We have this great lounge but we need to furnish it. I feel that if we had big build in bookshelf, it would make the place a bit more personable. I was looking at Ikea at some point but my hubby is totally against it.  Any suggestions?  Should I put something else there?  I feel this big long wall needs to be filled withLoungeLounge something. What do you think?loungelounge

You could also turn it into a gallery wall, featuring a mix of art and your own family photos. You can also incorporate wall shelves to add layers, and to place objects on, too. Some links that might inspire you:

Bookcases, though, would provide you with great storage!

Sometimes you can put together a couple of Ikea billys with closed lower cabinets but use wood trim and moulding to give them a custom look?
