Common Styles Of Shelves To Meet Storage Needs
When choosing a solution for your storage needs, one of the most popular options is shelves. No surprise there, given the wide variety of styles out there to choose from! Here we'll take a look at some of the most common types of shelves out there, and give you some ideas about how and where each can be used in your home to provide for your storage needs.
First, let's take a look at your traditional, freestanding shelving units. These can be found in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, materials and colors, from bargain stores such as Wal-Mart to high end, custom furniture makers. Ideal for any room that has open wall space, when choosing a freestanding shelving unit you'll want to take measurements before buying, to insure that the piece you pick out fits the space where you intend to put it.
Next, we have your corner shelf units that also come in a large variety of sizes, materials and colors. Designed to fit into corners, these shelves are ideal for rooms where extra storage space is needed that won't take up too much wall space. Large, solid units can be used in the living room to hold books and family photos, while small, lightweight ones can be used in kids rooms for toy storage.
You also have your wall mounted shelves, which are common in closets, garages, basements and pantries. These are often bought in kits and installed by homeowners to provide permanent storage solutions. They are also commonly found in living areas, and are used to display household decorations such as photo frames, knick knacks and other sentimental pieces.
Those are three of the more common styles of shelves, and when choosing a shelving for your home, it's important to consider each room one at a time. For example, start on your garage and make a quick list of all the things you need shelving for. Then make a list of shelving that matches those needs - for example, bicycle storage racks, furniture shelving and steel shelving units might be idea for the variety of things commonly found in a garage.
