Modern office shelves
Office storage for the modern home office can take many forms. Office wall shelves are one way to add easy access and versatile storage. Office shelving ideas can include wide or narrow shelves, plus either stationery or movable shelves. Folk Ladder Shelving from Design Within Reach is one example of modern office shelving ideas. Ladder shelving simply leans against a wall so is easy to install and easy to move. Multiple units can be juxtaposed to create wide expanses of home office shelving. Storage can also come in the form of desks with drawers, file credenzas, and small file cabinets on wheels that can move where needed and even be stored under a table.
Office storage solutions
Office storage cabinets are the most popular form of office storage in part because materials can be placed out of site. Cabinets come in many forms, such as DWR’s Line File Credenza, which contains a combination of drawers and shelves. Credenzas also come in many forms in wood or metal. An office bookcase is a good choice for home offices that need quick access to materials like reference books. Office bookcases are available in metal or wood in a variety of sizes. Some people prefer metal office shelves, like the USM Haller office furniture storage systems sold at DWR. Office systems allow you to select from a range of products to put together a series of storage solutions to meet a variety of needs. Portable shelving systems, like Story Shelving and Folk Ladder Shelving from DWR, allow for great flexibility in office storage.
How to choose office shelving
Office shelf dimensions vary widely and are made that way to allow for flexibility in their application in many varying situations. The important thing to consider when selecting shelving for your office space is to know the dimensions of your space and then determine where shelving or storage cabinets can be placed where they won’t be in the way of normal traffic in the home office.
