CONSIDER THE SPACE'S PURPOSE - First, look for a ledge that suits to serve the space's core need. 'I need to display my laundry powders right here above the sink for easy access,' for example. There's so many different shapes, sizes and fixtures and finishes, so why not spend some time sourcing something as beautiful as it is functional for the room's decor. Let's also broaden the idea of what is considered a shelf. It doesn't have to be free standing and attached to a wall to count as valuable decoration and storage space. Express your best shelfie on side tables, hall tables, cut out wall nooks, shower shelves, bookshelves, inside glass kitchen cabinets and so on
STABILITY & SHELF APPEAL - Before a single thing is placed on your shelf of choice, please do think about the structural integrity of the shelf itself and how it is mounted or stood.
