Reimagining Your Living Space

Reimagining Your Living Space

In the ever-evolving landscape of our lives, our homes need to adapt just as we do. Whether it's accommodating a growing family, a new housemate, simply working from home more, or less than you used to or perhaps you're simply seeking a fresh perspective. Whatever the reasoning, having an interior layout that can be easily adapted is key to making the most of every inch of your home, big or small. At Shelved, we believe in the power of reimagining your living space through versatile interior design, and one of the key elements in achieving this transformation is through strategic incorporation of modular shelving units.

Zoning Your Space

Zoning a room to create intimate lounging or dining areas can make a space feel cosy and inviting, while still allowing for an open and airy feel. An effective way to achieve this is through incorporating an open modular shelving unit. Not only will it help to section the room, but it also maintains the flow and connection between the divided areas. To avoid creating dark or gloomy corners opt for a shelving unit that allows light to filter through, glass partitions are an ideal choice and will still allow for a subtle division between areas.

A broken plan layout doesn’t mean that each zone should be noticeably different, in fact, a cohesive interior scheme will create a welcome flow and allow for furniture layouts to easily be adapted when needed.

If creating zones is key to reimagining your interiors, consider switching up flooring materials to draw attention to specific areas, for example, a cosy deep pile carpet or rug in the living room could transition to a hardwood floor in the dining room. This in turn offers a visual guide for other items of furniture such as seating and shelving.

Think about Storage

Storage plays an integral part in keeping your home free from unwanted clutter, so should be carefully considered when planning the layout of a new interior scheme. By integrating storage from the outset, you will avoid having to make do with storage options which simply don’t complement your new design. Remember to maximise storage potential by utilising vertical space. Floor-to-ceiling shelving units and wall-mounted storage systems make the most of available space, keeping the floor free for additional furniture if needed. Modular storage solutions allow for easy organisation and concealment of clutter, consider closed cabinets, or pull-out drawers to keep belongings neatly tucked away.

Incorporating Your Personal Touch

Finally, storage provides an opportunity to add personality and visual interest so don’t forget to incorporate your favourite artwork, plants, curated book collections and trinkets to your open shelving, this will help to bring your interior scheme together.

At Shelved, we understand the importance of reimagining your living space to align with your evolving needs and lifestyle. With our versatile shelving solutions, you can transform your home into a sanctuary of comfort, functionality, and style.
