Proper utilization of space is a must in offices with large filing and storage needs. Durable shelving is one way to take advantage of unused vertical space and to create an organization system that is accessible to all. Shelves come in a variety of styles and materials to coordinate with most rooms, and most are easy to set up and install.

Types of Shelving for Organization and Display
Wooden shelves offer a classic look, and when constructed of quality wood like oak or pine, are sturdy enough to hold large quantities of books and accessories. Plastic shelves deliver a modern appearance and are ideal for light objects. They are rust-resistant and require little care. Metal shelving is commonly used in industrial and commercial environments. These units are strong and have a large storage capacity.

Floating shelves mount directly to the wall to save space and to hold keepsakes and other light objects. Shelves with casters make it easy to move files from one location to another as needed. Finally, some shelves come with drawers or bins for storing smaller objects like office supplies and hardware or to make it possible to hide clutter.

Benefits of Shelving for Daily Use
When placed in a primary location, shelves provide quick access to frequently used records and files. Open bookcases provide more storage space than filing and they deliver easy access on both sides of the shelves, which makes it easier to locate what’s needed. Shelving systems allow access for more than one individual so it's quick and easy to locate information.

Wall shelves free up floor space to make room for seating or to eliminate stacks of books lining the floor. Shelves are an inexpensive platform for displaying interests and hobbies, providing an interesting touch to an office.

Where Is the Optimal Place to Hang Floating Shelving Units?
Hang floating shelves and other heavier objects on a wall stud for maximum support. Use a hand-held stud finder to locate and detect the studs, and then mark the location directly on the stud to insert nails or screws. For concrete walls, drill through the wall using a hammer drill and masonry bit, and then attach a quality fastener.

What Is the Weight Capacity of Shelving Units?
Shelving units accommodate a variety of weight limits depending on the material and size of the unit. Industrial shelves handle weights of 800 pounds or more, while plastic shelves generally support around 50 pounds per shelf. Check with the manufacturer’s instructions for exact load limits before set up to ensure the right unit is used for the job.

What Size Shelving Unit Do You Need?
Consider the use before picking out a bookcase storage solution. Decorative shelves should be around eye-level to show off photographs and keepsakes. A standard bookcase is around 84 inches tall to make it easy to access materials and maximize space. Floating shelves without a top are optimal for holding different-sized items. Before considering a shelving unit, measure the location to make sure it will fit.
