About this deal

When choosing your shelving units keep in mind where your shelves will be placed. There are several factors to consider, including purpose of the shelves, the weight of the items you plan to store and the available space in the room. We made our shelving to hold ten dowel rails, but this project is entirely custom to your spaces and can easily be adjusted for your requirements. Use the same principles to create deeper or half-depth slatted shelving. Shelving systems come in various shapes, sizes, and materials, such as metal, wood, and plastic. While there are many different types to choose from, the type of shelving unit that someone prefers depends on their individual needs, preferences and style.

Depending on your home décor and storage needs, shelving systems can be freestanding, wall-mounted, or mobile. Some come with additional features, such as drawers, cabinets, and hanging rods. If you plan to store heavy items, such as large books or bulky tools, you will need to make sure your shelves are securely anchored to the wall and can support the weight. For safety, we recommend wearing protective goggles, a dust mask and heavy-duty gloves when using a chop saw or drill. We used a custom spacer in this project for fast and accurate spacing, however, you can also use a tape measure to mark out measurements in the same way.Primarily used to house hot water tanks and even combi boilers, airing cupboards are often an underutilised storage space. If you’re short on storage or without a utility room, an airing cupboard with fully flexible and custom shelving is ideal. Air duvets, store boxes and hang your linen, washing and towels to warm through, out of sight.

As we worked on one long length of timber making multiple markings, we recommend using a pencil to mark through zones as a visual guide. Crosshatching an area that you shouldn’t work in, or circling drilling holes where lines intersect can be especially helpful. A chop saw or circular saw will ensure that your timber is cut accurately with precision speed. If you don’t have access to power tools, this project can also be completed with a universal saw. Ensure your timber is securely clamped, then slowly cut along your scored line with a clean and sharp saw blade. For a more organised and clutter-free look, closed shelves are the perfect solution to store items out of sight. Customisable cabinets and drawers are a great option to keep items hidden from view, while still allowing for easy access when needed. Inspect the cables and blades of your power tools before they are plugged in to ensure they are in good condition. If any of the elements need to be replaced, make sure this is done before construction begins. If your airing cupboard still has a hot water tank or combi boiler in, it’s vital that your shelving doesn’t prevent access for servicing. Safe ventilation and good airflow between your hot water tank or boiler and storage area is also vital. You should allow for good clearance to ensure air circulation is efficient.

These unit types can be a great option for displaying decorative items, such as plants, picture frames, or art pieces. Cube-shaped shelves are a popular open shelved option for those who wish to display their items or store them in decorative bins and baskets.
