- A shelf behind the sofa offers many new design ideas that we did not know until now
No one likes empty walls these days. Especially at home, where the space is always insufficient, we make every effort to use them fully. A shelf behind a sofa certainly sets new challenges in terms of interior design. On the one hand, it has to have only open space in any case and not complicate the entire look of the living room. This shelf must still be perfectly integrated into the overall design concept, ie its design, shape and color must correspond to the rest of the interior design. The shelf behind the sofa presents interesting opportunities for us to exhibit our favorite books and have them always at hand. There is certainly room on this shelf for beautiful family photos that you want to keep in mind. Only a few flowers in a vase or pot, small souvenirs and scented candles would round off this place and make it look great.

- Sofa can serve as a room divider and have a built-in shelf
If you choose a shelf behind the sofa, there are many options available to install it. For example, the sofa does not always have to be against the wall. It can be converted and used as a room divider. Your sofa can separate individual areas of a room, for example the dining room from the living area. In this case, you can again gain new space and storage space and grow a low shelf behind the sofa. On the one hand it should not exceed the height of the basic piece of furniture and on the other hand it should not be conspicuous, but only support the entire room design concept. The next two photo examples show this very clearly.
