"A place for everything and every thing in its place." Doesn`t that sound heavenly? That`s what new shelving or storage units can do for you.
For those of you that aren`t really familiar with corner shelving units you might assume that they are simply shelves that sit in the living room used to hold a handful of family photographs in nice looking frames and maybe even a few decorations. This is the reason I`m writing this article - it`s so that I can dispel this myth altogether. There are actually are number of ways a corner shelves get used in a family home. On top of this they aren`t just for personal usage. They also often get used in offices.
Corner shelves have become all the rage now a days in today`s modern designs. Although they are hugely popular today they have been around for over a hundred years. Way back in the day people needed that little but of extra storage in every room in their house. Most of the storage was taken care of by cabinets and cupboards but these did not give anyone a place to display any of their collectibles.
If you prefer a freestanding shelving system for your wall be sure it is sturdy enough to stand on its own or somehow secure it to the wall with cables or hooks. This safety precaution will ensure no one will be able to pull it over and securing your wall system will keep your breakables safe as well.
The basic parts of a floating shelf package are the internal bracket restraining screw and the shelf with holes that fit the internal bracket. Simple installation process involves measuring where to make holes drilling holes in the wall screw the inner bracket to the holes and last is sliding the shelf to the inner bracket fitting. After installing only the shelf will be visible and make sure to read the maximum capacity of the shelf to avoid accidents.
In the area of hanging shelves you have several choices when it comes to the style of brackets and hardware. A good rule of thumb is to use hardware well suited to the structure of the existing wall. Wall-mounted shelves with ready-made shelves and adjustable brackets are ideal for the laundry room pantry home office or your child`s room.
