A new shelving unit for the corner of the den is just the right addition to store those gaming remotes and add-ons. Need a place to show off the latest pictures of the grandchildren? Look for floating shelves for that big wall in the family room. Put some new open shelving in the laundry room and find a whole new airy feel to the space. Place a hanging shelf over the pantry door and double your storage. Put some new pegboard shelves in the shop and hang up all of the tools that are lying around. Think of the possibilities.
"A place for everything and every thing in its place." Doesn`t that sound heavenly? That`s what new shelving or storage units can do for you.
The older corner type shelves used to have a decorative wood or metal bracket that would be visible. Although it was easily seen it was made to blend into the decor of the room. With the modern corner shelves they can be hung with out any of the brackets being seen. You can still get a large number with decorative wall brackets but a floating type design has become so much more popular.
As you probably know available space in any environment whether residential or commercial is hard to come by these days. With the ever growing population it is no surprise there is progressive less and less space we have for use. At the same time what available space there is it comes at a price. For families this may mean needing to settle for a smaller home such as a 2 bedroom apartment. For businesses an office with a smaller floor space might have to do. With such spatial restrictions there is a need then to be more creative in using the space. Corners in any room are often difficult to utilize because of their awkward position. Hence corner shelves become perfect to alleviate this problem.
What will you display on your shelves? If you are creating a shelving area for your extensive library your shelves will need to be very sturdy. Other items such as trinkets photographs baskets and favorite collections may not require as much support. Wood or glass shelves are better suited for smaller items whereas wire shelving will accommodate larger items and linens very well. The more items you can store up and away using wall space means a cleaner and more organized home overall.
Location is critical when it comes to making a decision on the style and type of shelving you want for your walls. Make sure to take measurements before you purchase a shelving system. Do you enjoy rearranging your furniture often? You may want to consider a freestanding shelving unit that will fit on any wall in your living space. Otherwise a shelving unit mounted into the wall will offer more support and hold heavier objects.
