Shelving plays an indispensable role in our daily lives, as it is difficult to imagine any home or business without at least one shelf serving its purpose. Whether it’s in the cozy confines of a kitchen, the cluttered corners of a garage, the organized chaos of an office, the intellectual haven of a home study, or the sprawling expanse of a warehouse, shelves are the silent supporters of our possessions and productivity. Warehouses, in particular, rely heavily on shelves to manage their vast inventory efficiently, requiring an abundance of them to keep everything in order.
Everybody needs shelving in their lives, in fact, you’d probably be hard-pressed to find many, homes, or businesses that don’t have at least one shelf to help support something. Whether, it be in your kitchen, garage, office, home study, or something as massive as a warehouse, everybody is likely to have at least one shelf, warehouses probably require more than most though! Believe it or not, shelves aren’t all the same either, there are different types of shelves for different needs, here’s a few that might come in useful in the future.
One of the best types of shelving in terms of flexibility and functionality is a free-standing storage shelf since it can be moved from one location to another without any difficulty. The shapes, sizes, colours, and designs of these storage shelves vary massively too so your options are almost endless.
If your office space is designed in such a way that you have the space to do so, you could have industrial shelving, or a built-in shelving system can be one of the best options on the market to date! They can easily be designed to fit into almost any space, which means that you can make the maximum use of their effectiveness by saving time and room for your stuff.
In terms of ‘bang for buck’, built-in units tend to be top dog in the world of shelving solutions mainly because they utilize so much space without much wastage. They also happen to be one of the most adaptable shelving systems for use in either your home or workplace.
Probably the most common types of shelves, and the simplest to install/use are those using the method of fixed brackets. Wall-mounted brackets are installed individually, and shelving is positioned over them. The shelving’s dimensions can be changed to suit the needs and convenience of the users and, they can be some of the most durable forms of shelves, assuming that they are installed correctly.
An adjustable shelving system, as its name implies, can be adjusted vertically in accordance with needs and requirements. Each level of the shelf’s levels can have its height changed which makes them a great option for those in need of flexibility when it comes to what they are putting on their shelves.
This type of design is really useful because most room designs have corners that aren’t fully utilised, the beauty of corner shelving is that almost any home, or workplace space can easily accommodate corner shelving. They come in a wide variety of materials, shapes, sizes and colours so, you can really make your space your own, you could even make yourself feel right at home, in the office!
When it comes to offering a decent storage system that couples functionality with unique design, floating shelves are up there with the best of them!. They appear to be floating on the wall because there are no apparent pins or nails holding the shelves to the wall so, for anybody that doesn’t know how they are fitted, they can be quite the conversation starter too!
