We all have different ideas when it comes to keeping stuff on shelves above the bed. Some of us think that regular stuff such as books, paintings, photo frames, medicines, and showpieces are the only things we can keep on above the bed shelves. On the contrary, some people consider keeping minimal to no stuff on their floating or above-the-bed shelves as they have already utilized side tables, drawers, and other corners of their houses to keep necessary stuff and decoration pieces.

Fairy Lights 

Fairy Lights

This is one of the best items to add radiance and luxe to your above-the-bed shelves and your entire bedroom. You can hang fairy lights of any color in any way you like. I would suggest keeping the fairy lights moving along the ends of the floating shelves only, as it will look delicate. Don’t clutter your walls with them as it will diminish the prominence of your above-the-bed shelves. The ones who love to read at night or girls who want to decorate their room in the most girlish way can embrace the idea without looking back. 

Candles

Decorating above the bed shelves with scented or regular candles is a game changer. It will make the overall look of the bedroom so mesmerizing that anyone who takes a look at it will relish the decor. Couples can also add LED candles, at their convenience. 

Flowers and Plants

Decorating side and dining tables with flowers is very common. This time, decorate floating shelves above your bed with colorful flowers and green plants to add a rustic touch to your personal space. You can keep small flower pots with roses, lilies, or any flower you like. Add small pots of plants to further elevate the décor of your above-the-bed shelves. People who are allergic to flowers or want to avoid the hassle of watering and cleaning plants can keep artificial plants on their floating shelves. 

Alphabets 

Alphabets

We usually see a kid’s room decorated with alphabets on floating shelves and toys. Well, grown-ups don’t have to worry as they can also decorate their above-the-bed shelves with an alphabet of their choice. Married couples can either keep the first alphabet or alphabets of their complete names on the floating shelves of their bedroom. The same goes for singles and the ones sharing their room with siblings. You are free to put any single or complete word alphabet. It looks cute, welcoming, and unique. 

Photo Frames

Photo Frames

We like to keep photos of ourselves and our loved ones in any space of our home. We love to relish our old memories of our golden days spent with our loved ones. Hence, keep the pictures of yourself and your loved ones above the shelves so that when you enter your bedroom tired and stressed out from work, a glance at the old pictures will take you to a flashback of your best days, which will relieve all your worries and stress. Moreover, photos can let you tell stories of your past days to your spouse, kids, or friends who have come for a sleepover.    

Decoration Pieces 

Decoration Pieces

If you want to add an antique and traditional touch to your bedroom décor, feel free to place a porcelain or regular vase, pots, and plates above the bed shelves. Apart from regular show pieces, you can add decoration pieces or sculptures that highlight the cultural heritage of the place you live. For example, you can keep a showpiece of the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, a dragon, and a Buddha, if you live in France, the USA, or China respectively. This idea of above-the-bed shelving is perfect for patriotic and cultural people.
