From chaos to order: Choose the right office shelf

All offices need some type of storage solution and practical shelves are a wise choice. Which type of shelf is best depends on what is to be stored, in which environment the office shelf is to be placed and, of course, personal taste. Having this tiday and organised makes work easier and the office more pleasant space to work in.

Choose the right type of shelf

Always check the maximum load the shelves are intended for and remember that this applies to evenly distributed weight. Are they lighter items like binders to be stored or boxes with heavy contents?

The classic bookshelf in laminate with covered sides is always right in an office. Laminate shelves are durable and are available in several colors and different wood imitations. Perfect for books and binders. An interior design tip is to mix low and high shelves for more variety and livelier furnishings.

Steel shelves with open sides work well for filing or if a lot of storage space is needed in the office. These are often available with add-on sections, which makes it easy to expand as needed.
 
Wall mounted shelves are both stylish and practical. Hang them over a lower cabinet or over the desk to take advantage of the space.
 
Shelving systems that are mounted on the wall with support strips and hanging rails are space-saving and practical. Place the shelf as you like and move it as needed

TIP! Flexible office storage

The FLEXUS bookshelf is part of a furniture series that gives you the opportunity to mix the storage for the office. For example, you can mix high and low shelves for a more lively look or turn one of the shelves into a cabinet with a pair of doors in the same or contrasting color. For those who prefer a clean interior, there is also other furniture in the same series so that the entire office matches.

Where will the shelf be?

It pays to think twice before purchasing shelves. With the right model, color and placement, the shelves not only become storage furniture, but also increase comfort and ambience. In an archive room, on the other hand, it's propbably more important that the shelves hold as much as possible rather than having a modern design.

In a cramped space, floor space can be saved by building storage in the height instead of the width if the ceiling height allows. If it is not possible to build at height, shelves with extra depth are an alternative. Be sure to carefully measure the height, width and depth to make the best use of the space.
 
In a larger space, it can create a nice atmosphere to section off and create smaller areas in the room. Low shelves work perfectly as room dividers while maintaining some open space between co-workers. If you choose a mobile shelf with wheels, you can easily adapt the furniture according to your needs.
