Different types of shelves and how you can integrate them into your office
With so many little things that need storage in your home office it’s no wonder the desk is always cluttered. The solution is so simple you’re gonna love it: shelves. But which type to choose? That’s up to you to decide. We’ve selected three options which usually work great in most offices.
1. Shelves with fixed brackets.
This type is the simplest of all. Individual brackets are secured to the wall and the shelving is simply laid across them. The brackets are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes so there\s plenty of room for customization. There are actually two methods for installing these shelves. You can either fit the brackets to the shelf before fixing it to the wall or the other way around.
2. Built-in shelving.
In order to be able to have built-in shelving in your office you need the appropriate architecture or interior design. An existing alcove is necessary so you can install supports at the sides and then add the shelves on top. In this case, the shelves will have limited width but still, there’s plenty of room for flexibility. You can choose different heights and depth for each shelf and you can also leave some room for a piece of furniture at the bottom.
3. Adjustable slotted shelving
This type of shelving system uses vertical rails and brackets which can be inserted into them at different heights. This means you can adjust your storage system according to your immediate needs and preferences. These shelving systems are readily available and all you have to do is fix the vertical rails and the brackets to a wall.
