To keep offices, schools, restaurants and homes uncluttered it is necessary to have sufficient storage space and there are so many options to choose from today. Storage space can be designed beautifully around the area that you require it for and for its function.
Racks are used in the workplace, factories, schools, restaurants and homes to save on floor space as these can be easily assembled against walls, not to say that you can’t get stand alone racks – it all depends on what they are utilized for. They come in various materials such as wood, steel, plastic and now in thick glass shelving and steel frame work which is very modern. If used in a industrial setting you would have to use a strong framework such as steel, especially if it’s a tall structure – and you may even need to get Forklift Guys to hoist the goods down for you! In a home setting you can really use any of the materials (provided the goods you are storing are of average weight and size). Should it be used around water or where there’s a build up of condensation, then you would not opt for wood for example, so choose the correct material for the surroundings, weight and what it is intended for.
Cabinets are an all-time favourite and with the designs they have today you can really have so much fun designing cabinets to suit your needs. Cabinets can also be used in areas that are wasted space, for instance a flight of stairs, cabinets can be built beneath the stairs and take its form and shape to be used as a storage space, that would otherwise have gone to waste. There are so many different kinds of cabinets used for different areas. Cabinets don’t have to be seen, they can be built into a wall and they can be decorated as a feature, no more plain boring wooden cabinets.

Label your boxes so that when you are looking for something you will find it without having to unpack every box until you find what you are looking for.
