Storage & Shelves Don't Have To Be Boring!

Storage & Shelves Don't Have To Be Boring!

 Your typical shelving unit is boring. Let's do away with the metal grids and rigid structures. Strike a balance between creativity and practicality with our guide to storage and shelves, and here's how in 6 simple steps:


1. Where are potential spaces for shelves?

Consider your empty walls, corners, or perhaps even possible rearrangements of your home furnishings to make space for storage purposes.

  • Do you want your walls to have a presence in the room?

  • Do you want your shelves to be part of the centrepiece in your room?

  • Do you want your shelves in reach of your desk, bed, or other furniture?

After identifying the potential spaces, measure them while accounting for dimensions in terms of the height, width, and depth. Keep in mind the layout of the room, including the placement of doors, windows, and other furniture. Will the shelves obstruct anything you don’t want them to?

2. What do you want to store in the shelves?

What is your purpose? General storage of miscellaneous items, or items specific to a particular theme in the room?

Whether it's books, decorative items, kitchen essentials, or a combination of these, understanding your storage requirements will guide you in choosing the most suitable size and type of shelves.

  • Do you prefer open shelves for easy access and display purposes?

  • Or do you want closed cabinets for concealed storage away from the eye?

  • Alternatively, do you want portable wagons so that the things that you need are at an arm's reach?

 3. What aesthetics suit your space best?

 It’s the time to consider your personal style preferences and overall home aesthetics. What designs complement your current furniture? What colours suit your surroundings? 

Wooden shelves offer timeless charm and versatility, but there are various styles to choose from, including rustic, modern, and minimalist designs.

Consider the existing decor and furniture in your space to ensure your shelves complement the overall look to please both yourself and your guests!
