One of the main advantages of floating shelves is the sheer amount of space that they can save. If your living quarters have been feeling a bit cramped as of late, here are some further tips to follow to ensure you utilize the space you have as much as possible.

Onwards and upwards

People tend to think of the space in their home on a purely horizontal level, often forgetting that they have tons of vertical space to make use of, too.

Be it in the kitchen, the bathroom or the bedroom, try making the most of the space on your walls by installing shelves, hangers or other methods of organisation. It could be that you use hooks to hang your pots and pans up in the kitchen, install hanging baskets in the bathroom to store all of your toiletries in or add some corner shelves to your bedroom.

Get your money’s worth from your closet

If you have a proper closet, there are many ways you can maximize your space. Get creative – try installing shelves or catchalls on the inside of the doors. You could also stagger your clothes rods, which can give you up to three times more space.

If shoes are your obsession, try installing rods in the bottom of your closet to place them on. You could also use any space available under your bed for them.

If you’ve ditched the idea of an average closet and opted for drawers instead, try rolling your clothing instead of folding it and stacking it – you’ll be amazed by how much space you save.

Floating shelves – the most stylish space-savers out there

The name makes them sound ‘out of this world’, but floating shelves are simply shelves without any form of external brackets or support.

Instead, they are held up by various forms of internal support, which vary depending on what type of wall you are installing the shelving onto.

We can manufacture floating shelves that fit your exact needs, whether you require a corner shelf, a shelf of a precise width or length, or one that fits perfectly into a particular awkward alcove.
