Space is a huge issue in our home office life. There are so many gadgets and gizmos, whose-its and whats-its galore – yet we always seem to want more! But where to put them all? If you need help finding space to store all your tech and related accessories, sometimes a simple shelf can offer the best option to optimize and organize a tech-filled life without the purchase of major furniture.

Shelving comes in many different shapes, styles and colors. There's no wrong or right, it's all a matter of style and vertical square footage. It's important to select shelves that are right for your needs – not all are created equal and each shelf works for a different task. Some are meant for heavy books, while others are meant for displaying lighter weight items.
