14 Standout Shelving Ideas For Your Home

Whether in the kitchen, bathroom, or living room, most homes have some sort of shelving. They’re not really something we give much thought to, though – they’re just there to put our books, ornaments, tableware and such on. We consider them to have a purely utilitarian purpose, yet they can have a design function in the home just as much as any other decoration or item of furniture. Here are a few interesting shelving ideas that you might want to try yourself.

If space in your home is limited, making the most of every nook and cranny is essential. Corner shelves do just that, and are a great storage solution.

Rope shelves

Rope-hung shelves are easy to make and well suited to the more rustic looking home. They’re also particularly attractive when hung in front of a window, allowing light to shine through any glass jars you may have.

Take the concept of triangular shelving to the next level with a triangle bookcase – it’s a design feature that would certainly be eye-catching in any room.

How about a shelving unit with a deliberately disorganised appearance? It’s fun and quirky and would certainly throw off anyone who enters the room!

When looking to repurpose an unwanted item or piece of furniture, shelving is a good way to go as it’s fairly uncomplicated to create – and it can be adapted from almost anything, like this old door for example.

For something a bit more eccentric, there’s always the option of shelves made out of vintage suitcases – practical and a talking point!

Pipe shelves

Exposed plumbing pipes doubling up as shelves? Why not? There are probably many things in your home that could be turned over to a dual purpose.

Invisible shelves

Okay, so how about no shelves at all? Or at least none that are visible. These books aren’t stuck to the wall, rather they have been stacked on invisible shelves – genius!
