The Problem with Deep Shelves

Posted on October 14, 2011

Many people assume that buying deep shelves is the best way to store as much of their stuff as possible. And many times, it can work. But more often than not, it ends up hurting more then helping.

Why?

Because when the depth of a shelf is too deep, it’ll cause your items to get pushed back, buried and hidden, making things harder to find. Isn’t that the opposite result you were going for? One way to avoid this is to store smaller items in bins or containers to keep them from getting lost in the shuffle. Another solution is to have shelves made just for you!
