Home office shelves can be both useful and decorative when installed. There are a number of different types of shelves to suit different needs, from inexpensive freestanding shelves to customized, built-in shelves designed to complement a specific space. When creating a workspace at home, it is important to keep it organized and functional to circumvent some of the challenges that automatically come from working at home. Many people also want to design their home offices to match the rest of their home; as a result, the selections for home office shelves range from traditional to more contemporary depending on personal taste.

Freestanding home office shelves are some of the most common for a variety of reasons. Book shelves or stackable cube shelves are some of most popular choices because they are very versatile and used for a number of different purposes. Stackable cube shelves are a bit more modern in appearance, but they are also a great choice because they can be moved, customized, or added to as needed. Bookshelves can be used for more than just storing books, and also make a great place to display decorative knick-knacks or picture frames. Depending on where these home office shelves are purchased, they can be very budget friendly as well.

Wall-mounted home office shelves are another option. These may feature multiple shelves, or simply a single wooden or glass shelf. Though these are not as good of an option for storing heavy items, but they are great for displaying decorative items or for holding lighter things such as computer gadgets. For individuals who own their homes, wall mountable home office shelves are a good option; for people who rent, however, and may not be allowed to drill into the walls, freestanding office shelves remain the best bet.

For people who own their homes, and have more money to invest in their home offices, customized or built-in home office shelves represent another excellent option. For anyone who will have clients visiting them at their home offices, built-in shelves also give a very professional appearance. These can be mounted on top of a desk, or installed floor to ceiling. The sizes and shapes of the shelves can be customized to suit specific needs or to accommodate particular items. Regardless of the home office shelves that are selected, it is important to choose ones that are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing for the home.
