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.
A new shelving unit for the corner of the den is just the right addition to store those gaming remotes and add-ons. Need a place to show off the latest pictures of the grandchildren? Look for floating shelves for that big wall in the family room. Put some new open shelving in the laundry room and find a whole new airy feel to the space. Place a hanging shelf over the pantry door and double your storage. Put some new pegboard shelves in the shop and hang up all of the tools that are lying around. Think of the possibilities.
In a typical home there are a number of rooms in which the corners end up being underutilized to a high degree. One example is of the living room. A regular bookshelf may not end up flush against a corner of a wall. However if you got a specialized corner bookshelf the result will be different. Another room that could benefit from a corner shelving unit is the bathroom. If you have a small bathroom like I do then you`ll know that being cramp in it is not a good feeling at all. If I were you I would get a floating corner shelf which would simply hang on the corner of the wall.
When you are considering shelves for the home you will need to understand that shelving can serve some very different functions. From strictly utilitarian to the amazingly decorative shelving units and storage units can be a surprising addition to any home. Whether you are looking to organize your life and declutter your home without throwing everything out or you are just looking to turn up your design by offering some unique accessories a resting place shelving units offer this and so much more.
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.
Corner shelves are a great looking addition for you bathroom where space is at a premium as well as your bedroom kitchen family room living room and just about anywhere else you`d like to add some style and glamour. The only drawback with corner shelves is that large objects will obviously not fit unless you make your corner shelves such a feature that they are really big but this can be done stylishly especially if you stagger the size so that the bottom one is the largest and then as they go up the wall they decrease in size. This can be quite an eyecatching interior design concept.
