The pros and cons of white shelves

White shelves can be used in any room of your house. White shelves be used to keep towels on in your bathroom. You can use white shelves instead of upper cabinets in your kits cache in order to allow for a more open and airy feeling in the room. You can use white shelves to house your TV or as display shelves in your living room. However, before you begin using your white shelves, it is a good idea to carefully consider the pros and the cons of doing so.

The pros of white shelf use

White shelving is very versatile, which is a major pro. As mentioned above, white shelves can be used almost anywhere. White shelves can also go with almost any decorating style. If you want to have a more traditional feel, you can get a white shelf with thicker wood- like oak shelves- or even with some carved brackets or corbels holding it up. A distressed or shabby chic white shelf might be at home in a cottage or beach. A sleek and modern white shelf - perhaps with white glass - would look lovely in modern decor. Their versatility is one of the major pros of white shelves and should be considered by anyone looking for wall shelving or any kind of shelving unit. Less expensive White shelves are also painted white, rather than stained. This means that it may be possible to get white wooden shelves in less expensive woods or even to get white shelves which are not made of wood at all but that are instead painted MDF or other wood substitute. This can make a white bookshelf an inexpensive option.

The cons of white shelves

White shelves have some downsides too. For one thing, white is a light colour which is very apt to get dirty and to show dust or grime. If you have white TV stands or white mounted shelves, then there is a good chance that any specs of dust are going to show up as you look at your TV or at your items on display. This can be a bother for some who are not great at dusting and at housekeeping. White paint can also become scuffed, leaving your shelves looking dated.
