Take a really good look at the cupboard. Are the shelves too full or too empty? Are you disturbed by something? By taking your time and taking a good look from a distance, you can work with a fresh look.
To start with a clean slate, it is smart to empty the entire cabinet and sort everything: all the books together, the photos with the photos and any other accessories you might have had. Take a critical look at what you want in return and what may be removed. Which items make you happy? Indeed, a bit à la Marie Kondo, that Japanese cleaning guru.
Then think about how you want the books on the shelves. For example by color, alphabetical order, size or theme. If you go for color, it creates some cheerfulness because a kind of rainbow is created in the living room.
You may be tempted to put the books upright, but stacking a few on top of each other has a playful effect. This works especially well with large coffee table books that can be placed in the spotlight.
Less is more! The fact that you have many books does not automatically mean that they all have to be placed in the bookcase. It is best to leave out study books that have not been opened for years. You can make the closet look more stylish by not cluttering it.
Leave room for (beautiful) accessories. The following also applies: not too much. Do not put unnecessary items. Difficult to get rid of them? Then use beautiful baskets to store the things. By the way, it is smart to first place the large (er) objects in the cupboard because that way you can see how much space you have left.
Be sure to leave some space. The closet does not have to be so full that your eyes do not have a chance to ‘rest’. Open spaces provide more tranquility in the whole.
