Office shelves create storage space without taking up much space

Anyone who works a lot at home in their home office or in addition to the hours in the office needs a tidy and orderly study in order to be able to work in peace. With office shelves you can create storage space for folders, important documents and papers and thanks to the open compartments you always have everything in view and ready to hand and don't have to search for a long time. Study shelves are available in different designs and variants. Most models are very compact, so they take up little space but still provide plenty of storage space.



Study shelf: These versions are available

Office shelves are available as narrow or wide models, half-height or high, with or without castors, as corner shelves, as modern wall shelves or in filigree designs suitable for minimalist furnishing . Here you will find a description of the different variants:


  • The rollable office shelf

Mobile containers are particularly practical thanks to their wheels: you can easily move them around in your study. Therefore, they are ideal as a study shelf. They are usually equipped with several drawers in which office supplies such as hole punches, staplers, pens and other smaller utensils can be found. The shelf on top offers space for your calendar and other things that you need to have close at hand.


  • The rotating office shelf

Rotating study shelves create ample storage space without taking up much floor space. These shelving columns are available in a height of up to two meters, so you can store a large number of papers and documents. The rotating function also allows you to reach everything from multiple sides.


  • The office shelf with doors

The practical thing about a study shelf with doors is that there can be a little disorder here. Because it simply disappears behind opaque doors. Here you can stow away loose documents that have not yet been filed, without the whole study looking chaotic and untidy. A model with lockable doors ensures that you can store and safely store important documents there that you don't want anyone else to have access to.


  • The office shelf as a corner shelf

A corner shelf is particularly space-saving because you can use otherwise empty corners sensibly with such a model. You can store folders, books and other documents in the various compartments.


  • A heavy-duty shelf as an office shelf

If you have to store a lot of older documents in your study or have heavy equipment, a heavy-duty shelf is suitable as a study shelf. These shelves are usually up to two meters high and can carry a weight of up to 175 kg.



  • An office shelf on the wall

A narrow shelf that is attached directly to the wall creates storage space in places that would otherwise remain unused. A black metal shelf next to the desk is also an eye-catcher and a great place to store pens, pads and anything else you want to have close at hand.


Small or large: Which office shelving fits in which study?

Not only office shelves are available in different designs, study rooms also differ in floor plan and size. If you don't have a study, you often have to switch to the living room. In the following you can read which office shelf is suitable for which study and which shelf is used to create a work corner in the living room:


Office shelf creates storage space in small offices

The space under the desk can be optimally used with a mobile container. You simply push this under the table top and you can use the storage space in the drawers. A high corner shelf with a height of two meters creates space for files and compartments on a small footprint of just 40 x 40 cm. With an additional console table in black, more storage space and storage space can be conjured up in the study. These tables are usually very narrow and therefore very space-saving. You can also store documents in the open compartments and there is space for writing utensils, your calendar and photos of your loved ones on the top shelf.

Relaxed working atmosphere in large study rooms with matching office shelves

Entire walls of shelves fit into a large study, in which file folders, boxes with old documents and books can be accommodated. These study shelves can take up the entire wall and go all the way to the ceiling. A large study is also suitable for a rotating column that can be placed anywhere in the room. If you use a few shelves for decorative items, vases and picture frames, you will loosen up your study and create a pleasant working atmosphere. Half-height shelves or smaller wall shelves are also suitable for decorative objects – metal shelves in beige, for example, are currently popular.

Delimit a working corner in the living room with office shelves

To create a working corner in the living room, wide office shelves with a width and height of two meters are suitable. With such a model you can visually separate the work area from the living area. If you use a deep, open shelf as a room divider, you can fill it with office supplies from the office side and use it as a bookshelf from the living room side.


With the right study shelf, you can create enough storage space in your study or you can create a cozy work corner in the living area. In this way you ensure order and an atmosphere in which it is good to work.
