A great option if you’re always losing everyday items or are sick of constant clutter, a living room shelving unit will solve all of your issues. They are especially helpful for smaller spaces due to their multi-purpose use. Just because they count as storage, it doesn’t mean they can’t look good, and the ones we’ve chosen below are fashionable and functional in one.
Geometric Shelves for Living Room
Unique and very cool, this geometric shelving unit will elevate your living room to the next level. You can choose from a rustic brown, black, or white frame, but whatever you choose the steel base will keep things sturdy.
Curved inwards to create an interesting and abstract shape, this unit would be perfect for adding vitality to your room, and the floating half-shelves give you a major opportunity for organization. Add some plants to the very top shelves to recreate a stunning country-style paradise.
Corner Shelf Unit
If you are struggling with where to potentially place your shelf unit, this unit will solve all of your problems. Designed especially to slot into that pesky abandoned corner, it features five wood shelves and a metal frame.
This unit has a charming rustic look and is available in white or vintage brown. It would fit in seamlessly with a farmhouse or country-style living room with distressed wood furniture. Stick to classic farmhouse colors like cream for a cozy look.
Wide Shelving Unit
Measuring seventy-eight inches tall and seventy-five inches wide, this shelving unit is for those who wish to make a grand statement. Crafted from solid and manufactured wood, it has an open cube-style design with floating shelves.
Pick from traditional color choices and finishes like brown or chestnut, or go for more modern gray. Whichever you choose, this unit would look amazing in a room with taupe walls and a rug with a subtle pattern to really bring out the natural wood grain it has.
Solid Wood Living Room Shelving Unit
With an unusual curved design and a frame made entirely of solid wood, this living room shelving unit has five shelves with a weight capacity of 22lbs each.
The rich mid-brown color of this unit would pair really well with distinguished darker colors such as navy blue or burgundy – achieve this look with cushions on your sofa, a feature wall, or a decorative vase placed on your unit shelves.
Cube Shelving Unit
Another understated shelving unit, this one is made up of six separate cubes, meaning it would be a good choice if you like to put items into sections. With an openwork wire frame so you can see everything, it comes in black, silver, and white.
We think this unit would work best in a modern living room due to its simple and uncluttered vibe. Go for silver or white if you want it to blend in to the background, or choose the black option if you want your living room to have a little bit of an edge.
Narrow Living Room Shelves and Cabinet
Red Barrel Studio®
Narrowly sized at just over thirteen inches wide, this shelving unit has four deep-set shelves that will easily fit books or plants. Crafted from wood, it is a natural espresso color and has a clean openwork design for an understated look.
Due to the darker wood color, we recommend contrasting these living room shelves with lighter colors for a welcoming vibe. Warm neutrals like cream, taupe, or even off-white will complement the espresso finish perfectly, or you could opt for gray if you want something that is more cool-toned and contemporary.
Steel Living Room Shelves
Made from high-durability steel with a thin wire design, these living room shelves can store books, games, CDs and much more. Measuring sixty-one inches high, they are available in gray, white, or black.
The minimalistic look of these shelves means they will blend in easily no matter your décor style – they would look good against brighter feature walls, wallpaper, or you could pair them with classic neutrals to achieve a calm and minimalist look.
Living Room Shelf Unit for Small Spaces
The smallest on this list, this living room shelf unit only has two shelves. However, they will hold a lot due to the wide spaces. Moreover, the shelves are adjustable so you can slot them depending on what you want to store.
Depending on the amount of floor space you have, you could even place this shelving unit on top of a cabinet or underneath a coffee table. Featuring white shelves and a manufactured walnut brown wood exterior, its simple and up-to-date design would look lovely with neutral colors.
Shelving for Living Room on Wheels
Available in bright white, this shelving for your living room is innovative and fresh. Standing on wheels, it is portable and easy to maneuver around, ideal if you change up your living room often.
Measuring just under sixteen inches wide, this shelving is another option if you don’t have much space to work with. While the matte white shelves and metal frame look chic and stylish, bear in mind that they will get dirty earlier, so this unit might not be the best choice if you have pets or children.
Adjustable Bamboo Living Room Shelf
Cool and contemporary, this set of three living room shelves can be adjusted to your preference. Made from 100% bamboo with rounded corners for safety, it has an overall weight capacity of 30lbs, meaning it’s best for smaller items.
The light brown color and stripped-back industrial look of this unit would look lovely on a wooden floor, and the differing height of the shelves means you can order items in order of importance – i.e. keys on the top and books on the bottom.
Add geometry to create visual interest on an otherwise blank wall when organizing your books and collectibles: arched art deco bookcase with asymmetric shelves hits the point of funky contemporary furnishing.
