Shelves & Storage
Clutter is one of the main barriers to productivity. To create a home that’s conducive for studying or working, ensure your home stays organised and clutter-free with shelving and storage solutions from Comfort Furniture, Singapore.
Our productivity and efficiency are both directly influenced by the state of our environment. A clutter-free zone is beneficial for our focus and energy levels if everything is filed away neatly in cabinets or shelves. Undeniably, homes in a space-strapped city like Singapore offer limited space for setting up a home office — especially with your desk, study chair and other study room furniture already in place. To combat the potential threat of clutter, here are some quick tips of what to look for when choosing suitable storage and shelving options for your study room.
Type of Item to Store Away
First, identify what items you’re trying to stash away. Not all storage and shelving options are created equal, so you’ll have to decide if the selected shelf or storage furniture is more for storage or style. Some storage options such as shelf racks are built to withstand the weight of heavier items such as work folders and books. Some may even come with in-built dividers for work files, while others are great for keeping smaller items such as stationery and snacks organised and within reach. There’s also the option of wall shelves to maximise wall space in smaller homes in Singapore. Do consider if you’d prefer a cabinet that has doors to keep out the dust often generated due to the hot Singaporean weather, or an open storage rack that allows you a clear view of the contents.
Castors or No Castors?
Size, weight capacity and style aren’t the only things you should consider when selecting shelving or storage options for your study room. There’s also the matter of whether you opt for castors or not. Some shelving and storage options have castors while others have either legs or flat surfaces which would rest fully on the floor. Each type comes with its own sets of pros and cons.
Castors enhance the mobility of your chosen unit and give you the option of shifting your shelf rack or cabinet around to better suit your home office layout, a feature that can come in handy for smaller homes in Singapore. Additionally, space-strapped Singaporean homeowners can opt for mobile pedestals with castors to make the most of the space underneath study tables. Meanwhile, shelving options with legs give you extra space to store boxed items beneath them. Those with flat bottoms provide plenty of stability.
Whether you’re looking for sturdy storage cabinets, shelf racks or wall shelves to make the most of your urban home space in Singapore, you’re sure to find it all right here at Comfort Furniture, Singapore!READ MORE
