Your guide to picking the right shelves
Shelves should perfectly fill up the space, blend in with your lifestyle and bring about improvements to your place. But how do you go about choosing the right shelving for your home? Here is everything you should keep in mind when buying shelves:
- The reason you’re buying it: Are you buying it solely for decorative purposes and not necessarily for storage, or on the contrary? Do you have some extra space, and you don’t know how to put it to use? Ask yourself some fundamental questions to determine the purpose for which you're buying a shelf.
- The necessary dimensions: Determining the shelf’s purpose will help you figure out how wide, long, and tall it should be to fit in where you’re envisioning it. Thanks to our product filtering system, it’s easy to filter by dimensions to find relevant items for your search.
- Your preferred type, style, and material: Luckily, when it comes to shelf types, styles, and materials, there are plenty to choose from. Get inspired by our extensive collection and look for creative ways to make use of different shelving ideas.
Shelving ideas for every room in the house
Choosing your shelving shouldn’t be overwhelming. Every room in the house can benefit from a wall shelf or a shelf unit. Wall shelves in the hallway provide a way to store keys, bags, hats, scarves, or gloves. A wall shelf or a drawer shelf would be a great addition to a bathroom or a bedroom. A floating shelf in the living room can double as a TV stand and it can also be a practical addition to any kitchen. Let’s delve deeper into the topic for even more inspiration:
These are probably the most versatile pieces of furniture you’ll ever find. They can serve as a storage option for your living room CDs and DVDs, but you can also transform them into floating nightstands.
Floating shelves are perfect for storing baskets in the laundry room and they're practical in the kitchen for holding jars, pots, and pans. Moreover, the easiest way to create a focal point in your living space is by using a floating shelf to display items like souvenirs, works of art, ornaments or photo frames.
Wall Cube Shelves
If you want something unique, a wall cube shelf is a perfect piece to adorn an empty wall. You can even make your wall cube shelf into a plant shelf. The invisible mounting system makes it appropriate for almost any decor style, but the cubes provide plenty of space for storage, so don’t think this type of shelf will only serve as decoration.
Wall-mounted drawer shelves
A wall-mounted drawer shelf would look great as floating vanity. The drawers can hold makeup items, hair tools, and other necessities.
Wall-mounted drawer shelves are also perfect for storing children's books, toys, and games. Parents know that there’s never enough storage space in the kids’ room.
Quick tip: Place it lower on the wall for more accessibility.
Wall-mounted TV shelves
This type of shelf is made for storing anything from books and magazines to AV components, and gaming systems. It’s just as great for keeping remotes and chargers in decorative baskets. You could always transform it into an accent shelf and express your personality by decorating it with your favourite items.
Bookworms will love these. Use a bookshelf to create a mini library or a cosy reading corner for your children or yourself. Do you want it sturdy enough to hold a huge book collection? Then go for a bookshelf made from quality engineered wood and metal.
If you love collecting cooking books, how about displaying them in your dining room to have all of them within reach?
Wall corner shelves
Corner shelves made of tempered glass are the perfect choice for big and small bathrooms. They’ll conveniently hold your shower gel and shampoo bottles. Or maybe you’d prefer a melamine shower shelf.
A sleek glass floating shelf is excellent for holding baskets with toiletries, toilet paper rolls, or cleaning products. All the above-mentioned types are available at vidaXL along with many other options.
Shelving options for small spaces
Storage shelving units can be life-saving but you need to have enough space for them to work. That’s not the case if you live in a small apartment. You’ll need storage and organisation solutions. And we’ve got them for you! At vidaXL, there are more than enough shelving options for small spaces.
You need wall shelves to add to the room without taking too much from your limited floor space. From simplistic bookshelf boards and wide wall-mounted shelves to floating corner shelves, all get the job done. We recommend using storage boxes or basket sets if you need to store a lot of items on a shelf.
You don’t need to get rid of your CD collection just because you live in a studio flat. You can always install a practical CD wall shelf. Another trick to maximise your floor space is to go for a floating wall display with compartments.
Make the best use of the corners in your house by mounting a wall corner shelf with a unique design. Not only does it have a space-saving design but it will easily become the focal point in your room. Our wall corner shelves come in a variety of colours to suit every home style.
Colourful shelves you'll love
If you’re tired of black and white furniture and you feel like your home needs a touch of colour, why not use a wall shelf to fix that? Colourful wall shelves can be fun!
Your art pieces would look ten times better displayed on a bright red hanging shelf, don’t you think? But how about mounting a playful wall cube shelf in your children's room or in the playroom? We bet your kids would love that and it might even be a good birthday surprise idea. Naturally, you should choose shelving in their favourite colours. Try different colour combinations.
If you want to give your tiny apartment a lively appearance, U-shaped wall shelves in bright colors are the ideal choice. These hanging shelves feature an invisible mounting system and you can mount them separately or together.
Colourful shelves work just as well in larger rooms and you don’t need a big budget to give your living space a unique character.
From classic whites and beiges to glamorous greens and purples, at vidaXL you can find shelves in a wide range of colours. We also have multicoloured and transparent shelves for even more versatility. Go see for yourself!
