5 Ideas for indoor and outdoor shelving

Shelving must surely be the most versatile storage solution. Even better, shelving works both indoors, in any room, from the living room to the dining room, to the bedroom and bathroom. In the hallway, it solves a myriad of storage solutions too. There are also shelving solutions for outdoors too, making it perfect for the patio dining area to clustering herbs and plants.

Stylish shelving options

Shelving is the perfect storage solution for so many reasons. When it comes to space, if you don’t have a lot to play with or the dimensions and shape are awkward, you will find a shelving unit to fit.

The open nature of some shelving units is also perfect when space is minimal. The open flow of the shelves doesn’t block off space although you can use a wood bookcase, open or closed back, to zone spaces too.

Style is paramount. You may think of a storage unit or ladder bookcase as not being the star of the show – it doesn’t need to be – but as a supporting player, it is perfect.

Indoor storage solutions

For example, a combined storage approach of cupboard and shelving is ideal for many a room. The Mitcham oak bookcase certainly has stylish aplomb, perfect for the industrial style living room but is also perfect in the hallway too.
