Types Of Bedroom Shelves
Shelving in a bedroom can be a stylish way to create open storage for clothes, shoes, wardrobe accessories, books and decorative pieces along an otherwise unused wall space. There are many bedroom shelving types to choose from, depending on the type of storage needed, the overall use of the shelving, and the size of the bedroom. Bedroom shelves generally consist of stand- alone book shelves, desktop shelves, wall shelves, closet shelves, bed storage cabinets, and bed headboard shelves. A popular type of shelving is wall shelf units, which can be hung on bedroom walls. These also come in a wide range of styles, finishes, and dimensions to suit any type of bedroom décor or storage need. There are bedroom shelving pieces that come as one large shelf, or those that come in individual “floating” shelves or wall boxes, which can be hung in a variety of ways. Some wall shelves for bedrooms hang on metal tracks affixed to the wall so that they are adjustable for users.
Bed storage cabinets also can sit at the bottom of any size bed. These are also sometimes called bed benches or footboard shelving units. Wood types and finishes can be matched to existing bed headboards, dressers, and other items to coordinate the look. The footboard cabinets generally have deep drawers for storing extra blankets, books, and other items needed to make a bedroom environment comfortable.
