Many entrepreneurs enjoy working from the convenience of their homes. For every business there are trade books, reference books and other items. Home office shelving is the perfect place to place these items and transforms the area of the home into a more business like with a real business atmosphere.
One thing to consider about home office shelving is the amount of area that you have for your work. You can use shelving that is compact or hangs up on the wall to save space if area layout is limited. If you are using a walk-in closet for your home office area, you can use the shelving often already present in these.
Another great asset to your home office is a computer cart. Computer carts save space and allow more room for shelving in your office area. Many popular types are located at stackandstacks.com with a large selection of prices.
Some people prefer to build their shelving to create a look that is unique and fits their present office décor. The first step is to select your wood. After wood selection, you will want to cut two identical pieces of wood of the same length and thickness. You will want to get medium grade and fine grade sandpaper to sand the shelves. It is important to sand the surfaces and edges to prevent splinters and have a smoother coat of varnish or paint on the finished project. After cutting and sanding the wood, you will want to either paint the shelves to match your office walls or apply varnish to have a shiny texture to the shelves while showing off the wood grains.
Once the custom cut shelves have been painted or varnished it is time to get them ready for mounting. The wood shelves need holes punched or drilled into them for the mounting ropes. You can use a drill bit or wood hole puncher to accomplish this. Form two holes on each end of the shelves. Select some very long rope. You will need to cut four pieces of rope that are approximately twelve inches long each. Cut four additional pieces of rope to twenty-four inches. The ropes will mount the shelves in a balanced position to hold all the books and items that you have in your home office.
For each shelf that you will be hanging, you will need four ropes. For two shelves, you need a total of eight pieces of rope. It looks best to mount the shelves in a stair-like appearance. For the second shelf you are going to use the longer set of routes you previously cut.
Take the 12 inch rope set and tie into the wood holes on the first shelf that you will be mounting. Repeat this process with the second shelf using the 24 inch rope set. You are almost finished with mounting your shelves. The difficult part is complete.
The final step of attaching the shelves is to take eight screw hooks and place into your ceiling. Make sure to space these to compliment the shelf holes. Tightly tie and loop each rope to the hooks to have a stair-like appearance and new shelves.
Your project is complete and your home office shelving will be a nice accent to your home office area. You will have space to store items and have not sent too much money.
