Choosing Shelving

Most people would agree that their ideal living space is organized, neat, and clean. Although your home probably isn't spotless and uncluttered all of the time, it's a look that you probably strive for and perhaps go to great lengths to achieve.

A simplistic easy to use method of organization is the best solution to a clutter problem. Over time, we accumulate items and might not be sure how to store them. These items pile up and eventually become a mess that makes your living area seem crowded and small. It's okay to keep your favorite things on display, but leaving too many things out in a disorganized way will overpower the room.

Of course, getting rid of a few things you don't really need is one good way to help de-clutter your space, but if you aren't interested in parting with your possessions, you're best bet is to learn to organize things, and this inevitably means shelving. Shelves offer extra places to keep your items while still keeping them on display if you like. You can also organize bins and boxes neatly on shelves.

You might realize that adding some shelves to your home would be a good idea, but what kind is best? There are shelves made from different materials, in various shapes, and in many sizes. If you aren't totally sure how to choose shelving think about these points:

  • If you want to display a few things in a room but don't want shelves adding bulk, try wall-mounted shelves or corner shelves. Wall-mounted shelves are up on the wall and out of the way of your other furniture. Placing a corner shelf in a room utilizes space that might otherwise remain empty, and it is unlikely to get in your way.
  • Remember that what you need to store will decide what kind of shelves to get. For example, of you will be keeping heavy books on the shelf, opt for a more heavy duty, sturdy shelving unit. The last thing you want is for a delicate shelf to collapse under the weight of hundreds of books!
  • Instead of using unsightly cardboard boxes, try organizing your shelves with decorative bins or baskets. These contribute a decorative flair to the room instead of looking bland.
  • Choose shelves in a color that is versatile in case you ever need to move it to another room with a different color scheme.

With the help of a few shelves, your home can become organized, neat, and orderly.
