Racks in the interior

A shelving unit is a practical and convenient piece of furniture that can be installed in almost any room. It can be used to store decorative items, books, toys and souvenirs.

Recently, this piece of furniture has become quite popular. This is due to a number of advantages:

  • simplicity of construction. There are prefabricated models, which can be equipped according to the needs of the occupants;

  • cleaning. Taking care of the racks is very simple: it is enough to wipe off the dust from them during normal cleaning;

  • a wide range of choice of different shapes and designs, which allows you to pick up a variant exactly for your interior;

  • ease of use. The presence of several segments allows you to divide things into categories, preserving order in the environment;

  • mobility. Depending on the layout of the room shelving can be installed close to the wall, and it can serve as a kind of barrier between the separate parts of the room, which opens up many possibilities for zoning the room;

  • relatively low cost in comparison with cabinets and modular walls.

Selection criteria

First of all, it is necessary to decide on the place of installation of the shelving unit. So, for example, models for the living room are unlikely to be suitable for the children's room — because of the height or the presence of small components in the design.

It is also very important to consider the design of the room. Racks should harmoniously complement the interior of the room. After all, a minimalistic metal model is not suitable for the living room, made in the luxurious classical style. If there are difficulties with the choice, it is better to consult with the designer.

It is important to consider the practical component, so when buying it is necessary to pay attention to the number of shelves and size — the more these indicators — the higher the capacity. In addition, not only the height and width, but also the depth is important. If you plan to store books in the rack, the models with the index of 25-30 centimeters will suit best. If you intend to store decorative items or souvenirs, you should pay attention to the rack with a depth of 15-20 cm.

And, of course, you need to consider the design and material from which the furniture is made. Unassembled racks are usually used in the room, in the planning of which they have already been inscribed in advance. If such an element was not provided, then we advise to pay attention to the prefabricated model, which can be transformed to suit any situation.

Often prefabricated shelving units are made of metal or plastic.

Wooden products most often have a non-dismountable design, which reduces its versatility. Therefore, special attention should be paid to the choice of model.
