Wall shelving systems are used for function and decoration in homes and offices. The variety of styles, materials, colors, and brackets available to mount shelving on your wall or simply place against a wall provides an option for every home and décor. Shelves can be used as a focal point in a room or shelving can take up an entire wall of a room. Location is critical when it comes to making a decision on the style and type of shelving you want for your walls. Make sure to take measurements before you purchase a shelving system. Do you enjoy rearranging your furniture often? You may want to consider a freestanding shelving unit that will fit on any wall in your living space. Otherwise, a shelving unit mounted into the wall will offer more support and hold heavier objects.
Cherry is easily identifiable by its distinctive reddish brown color and straight grain. It`s a stiff, strong wood that will add some expense to your shelves. However, it`ll look fantastic. Other premium woods include maple and oak. You`ll pay more, but these durable shelves will last a long time and add value to the room you put them in. For some, that`s more than worth the extra cost.
What will you display on your shelves? If you are creating a shelving area for your extensive library, your shelves will need to be very sturdy. Other items such as trinkets, photographs, baskets and favorite collections may not require as much support. Wood or glass shelves are better suited for smaller items, whereas wire shelving will accommodate larger items and linens very well. The more items you can store up and away using wall space means a cleaner and more organized home overall.
