The way you organize a room can greatly affect the mood and efficiency of a space. Though any type of shelving unit can greatly organize a space, there are some that can add an elevated feel and become a statement piece more than a simple tool for stacking books. Here are some unique shelving units to create allure in your space.
- The Design Files. This asymmetrical bookshelf is a far cry from the typical organizational unit. The asymmetry creates visual interest, while also doing the job. Try this out in a more modern home.
- Chic Tip. This floor to ceiling storage unit even has a built in desk, which expands the width of the room. This would be perfect for rooms that need maximum efficiency.
- Style Spell Book. Can you believe that these gorgeous shelving units were once basic Ikea? They were given a little makeover with some gold spray paint and now they look fancy and functional. Try it out in your own space!
- Remodelista. This triangle bookshelf in the General Store in LA is perfect as an accent piece and for displaying the store’s homewares.

This modular bookshelf was put together by different shapes of boxes and assembled together from floor to ceiling. This is a great technique to use in a minimalist space to add visual interest.

This technique is similar to the previous idea, except that the shelves are built in. The shapes are varied in length and width so it creates a perfect way to display unique items in this cool coffee shop.
