3. Open Shelving 

Souvenirs from travels all over the world, memorable photos in frames, collections of liquor or prized figurines, and even achievements like plaques and trophies can be neatly displayed on shelves. 

Books, even if you’re not an avid reader, could still tell a lot about your personality whether you chose it because of the color or design of the book cover or because of the titles.
