Using Shelves to Organize Your Office
Office shelves can have a transforming effect when utilized correctly. They make you more productive, your office more attractive and put together, and of course they help you to organize your working life.
Office Shelving is meant for storage, filing, and display. In all of these areas the right shelf can truly improve your quality of life at work. At Smart Furniture we're we carry thousands of shelves from the most thoughtful designers in the country - each shelf has its own unique qualities, functional and aesthetic, that can be applied to your workspace. Let's look at some examples of how shelves can help you organize and define your office:
Your desk is the heart of your office space. Whether you're in a cubicle sharing space with co-workers, the desk is the first essential area to organize and square away. Office shelves can be the key to doing just that.
Office shelves have to be flexible and adaptable. Ideally, a single shelving unit serves not only as fantastic filing system, but also as a space for display and more casual storage (think books, printer paper, general office ephemera. The best will also provide space for office equipment like printers and fax machines. When it comes to putting shelving on or around your desk, your options are a bit narrowed, and you have to be a bit creative.
One of the best options is Cubitec shelving. Cubitec shelves are small, compact, and square - so you can make use of more than one surface. They can be mixed and matched, stacked and placed side by side. They can also be used to create barriers between certain parts of your desk, or between your desk and the rest of the office. They can fit snuggly underneath many desks, and on top or beside any desk you could choose.
Cubitec is colorful and customizable, giving your desk space that extra touch of personality so many office spaces could really use. Other great options include floating shelves that can be mounted on walls above your desk (or onto the side of the desk itself in some cases), rolling shelving units that can fit underneath your workspace and be rolled wherever they're needed, and larger bookshelves that can flank your desk or char.
Storage and filing is essential to running any office well. And shelving units are one of the primary ways of accomplishing both ends in a simple, attractive, space-saving package.
This type of office shelving (in general) needs to be able to close and conceal certain stored items (important files, tax forms, etc.). Open systems like Cubitec or Smart Shelving won't always work for strict storage and filing purposes (if those are the only purposes of the given unit).
A great choice here is the Eames Storage Unit, in all its glory. Attractive and classic, it gets the job done with aplomb.
This storage unit is large, and capable of holding many different types of material. It has spaces for secure storage as well as for display and decoration - it's multi-purpose and multi-form. One of these office shelving units will satisfy a lot of different needs all at once, none more effectively than storage and filing.
If this type of shelving is not to your liking, there plenty of other options more suited to pure storage and filing. Units that can fit under desks or serve as combination storage and work surface, or wall shelving and bookshelves (for less sensitive files and storage materials) that can hold huge volumes of material.
