16 wall-mounted shelving units to give you extra storage without sacrificing floor space

They’re a neat way to clear some clutter, or just display your favourite pieces.

Sometimes our home storage can be frustrating, making you feel like you need a bigger kitchen, another chest of drawers in your bedroom, or a whole bathroom revamp to tackle the problem.

However, sometimes just adding a little extra storage can make a big difference, giving your existing storage a little more breathing room and making everything work more harmoniously.

Wall-mounted shelving is great for this, because it creates storage on an otherwise unused wall area, without taking up any precious floor space, particularly important for those of us who live in smaller homes.

It can also be a great way to display favourite items in a living room, or maximise a tight hallway by providing a place to leave keys and hang bags. Here are 16 options if you’re considering adding some wall shelving to your home.

Living room

Sector Shelf, Ferm Living, €298, Maven

Whether you want something large for your book collection, or favourite ceramics, or just a place to put a few plants, there’s plenty of styles to suit any space.

Kitchen

Sturdy and practical options will provide extra space in the kitchen to keep spices to hand, somewhere to hang utensils, or a place to stack everyday tableware.

Bedroom

Metal shelf black, €59.50, Smallable

If you don’t have space for a bedside table, a little shelf can be just as handy. There are also some gorgeous options if you just want to add a decorative touch.
