Q. What are shelves?
A. Shelves are items that will be fitted to a wall to create additional storage instead of using a storage unit. They will be straight and manufactured from a variety of materials.
Q. Why should I choose shelves?
A. Shelves are a great storage option for a number of reasons. As there is such a wide variety of sizes, types and materials, there's sure to be a shelf for your needs. Maybe you just require a small glass shelf to go above your basin to hold your toothbrushes and cup, or perhaps you require a heavier duty large wooden shelf for serious amounts of storage for larger bathroom items.
Q. What style should I go for?
A. This will depend upon the style of the rest of your bathroom, and what you are intending to use the shelf for. If you have a traditional style bathroom then a glass or metal shelf is probably going to work better, whereas a large, contemporary shelf would be perfect for a modern bathroom. If you just need a little shelf for tooth brush holder etc then a small accessory shelf would be ideal, but if you are wanting to store towels, soaps, lotions, or some decorations, then a large wooden shelf would be a much more suitable option.
Q. What things should I consider before purchasing shelves?
A. You will need to consider the application of the shelf, and then the size of space that you have. You will also need to consider things like colour, style and budget. A big thing to think about is the fact that when you use shelves for storage nothing will be hidden, everything will be on display. So if you are looking for storage where you can pop lots of bits out of the way, shelves are not the right storage solution for you.
Q. Are shelves suitable for use in a cloakroom bathroom?
A. This will depend on the size of wall space that you have available, and the size of the shelf. But providing you have enough space and a suitable wall then this could be a perfect storage solution for a small space where floor area is limited.
Q. Will I need anything else to go with my shelves?
A. They are a standalone item so you won't need anything else to go with them, however you may need to purchase the correct fixings for your wall.
