Shelving

What Is Shelving?

Shelving is used for all sorts of things, to hold books or to display collectibles, family photographs, or even houseplants. Shelving in a bedroom closet might hold sweaters and pants, a linen closet might have shelving to hold linens, and the garage or basement might have shelving to hold sports or lawn equipment. Kitchen cabinets have shelving to hold dishes and pots and pans.

 

Types of Shelving Systems

Shelving typically consists of two vertical boards that support one or more horizontal planks or shelves either with screws, brackets, or grooves. There are numerous types of shelving systems available at Industrial Shelving centers and other places that sell organizing systems. Shelving is typically made from wood, plastic, metal, glass, wire, or fiberboard.

Shelving can be freestanding, for example a bookcase, or wall mounted and may consist of a single shelf or multiple shelves. The width of shelving can be narrow to fit into small spaces or wider to accommodate larger objects such as a stereo system or television set. Sometimes shelving systems are mix and match, while others are permanent once they are assembled.

How to Display Items on Shelving

Shelving serves a decorative function as well as a utilitarian function and is an integral part of organizing our possessions. Once you have determined what kind of shelving you need, it's time to organize the items that will be displayed there. If it is existing shelving, the first step is to remove all of the objects from the shelving. If it is new shelving, gather up everything that you want to display on the shelving.

Group similar items together, for example books, baskets, photographs, or those ceramic pigs you've collected for years. Place the larger objects or large collections of objects on the shelving first. This sets up the structure or “bones” needed to make the shelving a balanced composition.

In keeping with the concept of balance, a stack of over-sized books should be placed on the bottom shelf rather than on one of the middle shelves or at the top. Similarly a set of porcelain teacups and saucers is better displayed on the top shelf rather than on the bottom shelf where they will barely be noticed.

Once you've set up the basic framework you can fill the shelving with smaller objects. Just make sure you leave enough space between objects so that the shelving does not appear cluttered and messy. And, finally don't be afraid to remove objects and place them elsewhere in the room.
