2. Vary the heights. This goes in line with making it interesting. A tall candlestick with books laid horizontally and a ceramic accessory is a surefire way to make the space work.
3. Do not overload them. Now we’re thinking not what’s just aesthetically beautiful or functional but just pure logic. Believe me, I know this from experience. My home office display ledges fell twice because of my lovely but ultra-heavy design books. Spacing your displays also evens out the load.
4. Space them symmetrically and evenly. Since your display is supposed to be the “interesting” part, the actual display ledges should not be the design spotlight. Going asymmetrical on securing them to the wall makes it somewhat cluttered. Keep it simple!
5. Relate the size and placement of the ledges as it relates to other furnishings in a room. Small ledges just wouldn’t look right on top of a huge sofa would it? Also, if you are placing them with a furniture below it, like a television or a message board, place the bottom ledge 6-12 inches from the top of the furnishing.
I hope these tips help! Show us your amazing display ledges!
