Corner Shelf Bookcase Whether in a spacious corporate office, a cubicle, or a home office, space is usually at a premium. It is essential to keep office space clean and organized, and a corner shelf unit can assist in that task. They are available in a variety of materials and colors, and provide much-needed extra storage space without taking up too much room. The corners of an office space are often underutilized. In many cases, they are available free space, but the awkward shape makes it difficult to use the space efficiently. A corner shelf solves this problem. The units are designed to specifically fit into a corner, and are available in many sizes. The shelves are a great place for storing a variety of items, from office supplies to computer equipment or books. If you are located in a cubicle at work, a cubicle accessory which will greatly enhance your storage abilities is a convenient corner shelf unit. Shelving units are available as either standalone pieces of furniture, or as individual shelves that must be hung up on the wall. When looking for a corner shelf unit, one will find that some are already assembled, while others come in a box and must be assembled after they are purchased. In many cases, the units that need to be assembled are less expensive and the time needed to put it together is usually minimal. Corner shelves are available in many colors, materials, and styles, making it possible to find one that will complement the décor of any office. Most units that require assembly are made of wood veneer, or other manufactured materials, while assembled units can easily be found in solid wood. Metal units can also be found, and may be a good fit for an informal office space where function trumps style. If customers or clients regularly visit an office, it may be worth investing in a higher quality corner shelf unit in order to present a professional image. Like most furniture, the shelves can be bought in a number of different stains; shelves made of manufactured material can also be purchased in colors such as white or black. The size of a shelving unit needed depends on the amount of additional storage space required. One can purchase a single corner shelf, or a shelving unit that extends from floor to ceiling and offers multiple shelves. No matter what size is bought, a corner shelf unit is a great piece of furniture to have in any office. It will expand your storage capabilities and will make the most of your limited office space.
Solid Brass Shelf Brackets - Strength and Beauty For the Home As an architectural element a shelf bracket serves an important function: assisting in the support and carrying of weight. Most brackets have a simple L shaped design of two "legs" with one side attaching to a wall and the top leg extending outwards to support overhanging objects. There are a variety of materials that can be used to construct a bracket including wood, stone or metals. Since a bracket is expected to carry a large amount of weight it is important to choose a high quality material that will not bend or snap under pressure. Choosing new brackets for a shelving project in the home is a simple process when it is broken down into a series of questions. 1) How Many Shelves Are Being Installed? A shelving system can range from one shelf to however many will fit in a given area. Take into account what will be stored on the shelves (books, knick knacks, tools, etc.) and consider any additional space certain items may require. 2) What Material Will the Shelves Be Made Of? Shelves can be metal, wood, glass or even plastic. The type of material is especially important to consider when storing heavier objects such as books or home hardware. Thinner materials will bend and can possibly break under extreme weight so choose a higher quality material such as wood if needed. 3) How Many Brackets Will It Take? This will depend greatly upon the size of the shelf - a good rule of thumb is the longer the shelf, the more brackets each shelf will require. If you shelf length exceeds 30 inches plan on using at least 3 brackets - it is important to provide adequate support for longer shelves to prevent sagging or breakage. 4) Where Should They Be Installed? Shelf brackets should always be installed into a stud - do not mount a shelf bracket into drywall only because it will get torn off the wall when weight is added. A stud finder is a simple and inexpensive tool available in most home hardware stores and a good investment for all homeowners. If brackets are being installed into a solid wall such as brick or concrete, wall anchors will need to be used. Installing these anchors into weak areas (such as mortar) will cause the same problems as installation directly into drywall over time. 5) How Much Weight Can One Shelf Carry? This will depend entirely on the material the shelf is made of and what it is carrying. A glass shelf will typically support no more than 50 pounds while wood and metal shelves can carry anywhere from 200 to 400 pounds depending on thickness. Solid brass shelf brackets offer added strength and durability over time and come in a variety of ornate designs to add beauty to any shelving system. A bracket is a focal point of design and a unique shelving bracket will transform a boring shelf into a decorative element in the home. Shelf brackets can be matched with other existing patterns in the home or stand alone as a new and exciting change from the ordinary.
