Shelves: The Secret to Staying Clear of Clutter

Is clutter making the rooms in your home look and feel smaller than they really are? There is a solution. Shelves are the perfect way to contain or display mementos, books, pictures, magazines, CDs, paperwork, flower vases, etc. When used with a little flair, shelving can also give a space some personality. Usable in home offices, linen closets, pantries and living rooms, the variety of shelves are limitless.

Shelves can be used individually, in sets or as whole units. Available in different styles, colors and finishes (wood, metal, marble, glass), they can easily be found in chains like Crate & Barrel, Bed Bath & Beyond and Target for decorative purposes or The Container Store or Home Depot for function.
