How to Make Magazines a Stylish Part of Your Decor
Creative ways to display your reads.
Published Jun 25, 2018 4:30 PM
In our humble opinion, you can never have too many magazines. Forget reading on a tablet or e-reader: There’s something to be said about thumbing through the tangible pages of your favorite subscription; dog-earing your favorite tips, tricks, recipes, and stories to remember for later.
But if you’re like us and tend to unapologetically hoard lots of print issues, it can be hard to stay organized. Instead of letting those pages pile up, we’ve rounded up a few stylish ways to store them. Try these easy solutions to put your go-to reads on display.
Repurpose an old crate with some wheels for a chic, portable storage option that blends with any rustic decor.
Keep those colorful covers in check with the rest of your space by placing them in a sleek, neutral canvas holder, like this one from Denmark-based Ok Design.
Turn a crate on its side, fill with magazines, and enjoy! This is a great option for a bedside or end table.
A Hollow Bench

Use Magazine Holders

Stack your magazines under your books on the ground, in order to form a pyramid-like structure.
On Your Coffee Table
This one is a given, but displaying your favorite (or latest!) covers on your coffee table is a great alternative to collecting expensive books.
