In the area of hanging shelves you have several choices when it comes to the style of brackets and hardware. A good rule of thumb is to use hardware well suited to the structure of the existing wall. Wall-mounted shelves with ready-made shelves and adjustable brackets are ideal for the laundry room pantry home office or your child`s room.
But if you want your shelves in a place that gets reorganized fairly often adjustable or mobile shelving is the best option. Soon after your shelves are put up you`ll notice that your space is becoming de-cluttered and that you have fewer distractions to take you away from your task at hand.
Oh sure. It sounds simplistic. But aren`t the simple answers sometimes the best? Maybe your problems won`t all fade away. The kids will still argue over silly things. The dog will still jump up on the pastor when he drops by. The dishes will still need washing. But maybe you`ll have time for a quiet cup of coffee in your newly-organized living space. Perhaps you won`t step on any blocks or doll-sized high heels when you go in to kiss the children good night. Or maybe you`ll just be able to find a screwdriver. Hey miracles happen.
"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.
Voila! Place the brackets into the holes on the rails at the spots where you want the shelves set the shelves on top of the brackets and then fill them up. Everything won`t fit? Move the shelves around to give greater height when needed. Add some more brackets and shelves. That`s the beauty of adjustable shelving.
If you prefer a freestanding shelving system for your wall be sure it is sturdy enough to stand on its own or somehow secure it to the wall with cables or hooks. This safety precaution will ensure no one will be able to pull it over and securing your wall system will keep your breakables safe as well.
