Add shelving to Any Room

The addition of shelving in a room can be one of the most dramatic things you can do to enhance any space. Adding storage in a room, whether it is the living room or den, can give the illusion of more space and make a room seem larger. There are a number of different types of shelves to choose from. You will want to determine which ones are best for your needs and where to place them.

 

First decide on the type of shelves you would like to use. You may want to have a bookshelf with drawers underneath so that you can store books or magazines; a cabinet made out of glass or metal for compact storage of electronic equipment, jewelry or antiques; or a combination of magnetic balls. You can find a large variety of shelves in stores and online.

Next decide where to place them on your floor plan. If you live in a small house, you probably want to have a shelf that goes all the way to the end of the room where the children and pets cannot see it. A smaller sized home with a smaller bedroom may benefit from a shelf just high enough for the TV screen or the computer keyboard.

 

Once you have decided on the location of the new storage, you will need to decide how you want to mount it. You can hang the shelving on your wall or run a series of hooks down the side of the room. You may also want to install magnetic balls on the ceiling or add hooks on the ceiling, depending on the room’s shape. Make sure to measure how much room is available before you order your shelves.

 

It is a good idea to consider installing a locking system for your shelving. You may want to use a lock that locks with a key or an electronic locking system. If you want to make sure that only you are accessing the shelving, you can even use a deadbolt lock on the door to your home.

 

Shelving can make a room appear larger or smaller, depending on the style you choose and the materials you purchase. When you are looking at all of the available options for adding magnets shelving to a room, you should be able to find shelving that matches the style and design of the room and the space available.
