Shelving systems are versatile and practical storage solutions used in a variety of settings, including homes, offices, retail stores, and warehouses. Shelves provide an organised and efficient way to store items such as books, clothes, files, appliances or miscellaneous supplies.

IKEA offers a wide range of shelving options to suit your storage style. By choosing the right shelving system for your needs, you can keep your space organised, efficient, and visually appealing.

Choosing the right shelving unit

When choosing your shelving units keep in mind where your shelves will be placed. There are several factors to consider, including purpose of the shelves, the weight of the items you plan to store and the available space in the room.

Depending on your home décor and storage needs, shelving systems can be freestanding, wall-mounted, or mobile. Some come with additional features, such as drawers, cabinets, and hanging rods. If you plan to store heavy items, such as large books or bulky tools, you will need to make sure your shelves are securely anchored to the wall and can support the weight.

When installing your shelves consider the layout of your space. Avoid placing your shelves in a location that blocks traffic flow or makes the room feel cluttered. Consider placing your shelving units off the floor or using corners or alcoves to create a built-in shelving system.

The IKEA traditional shelving systems features movable shelves that can accommodate various types and sizes of items and can be adjusted to different heights. 

Customise your shelves

Shelving systems come in various shapes, sizes, and materials, such as metal, wood, and plastic. While there are many different types to choose from, the type of shelving unit that someone prefers depends on their individual needs, preferences and style.

Some people prefer the clean and minimalist look of open shelves where items are visible and easily accessible. These unit types can be a great option for displaying decorative items, such as plants, picture frames, or art pieces. Cube-shaped shelves are a popular open shelved option for those who wish to display their items or store them in decorative bins and baskets.

For a more organised and clutter-free look, closed shelves are the perfect solution to store items out of sight. Customisable cabinets and drawers are a great option to keep items hidden from view, while still allowing for easy access when needed.
