Shelving Units Going To The Ceiling
A shelving unit that goes up to the ceiling is a great idea: it provides much storage space, it makes your space look visually higher and more whole. There's a ton of ideas from a wall, which is taken by a built-in shelf totally to a standard shelving piece in white plywood. Order or make a shelving piece that perfectly fits your space in size and style, it's very important to keep your space harmonious.
If you want more privacy, go for closed storage units and cabinets, if you want an airy look, prefer open shelves. Combine both to make a unique look and let light through. A pass through large shelving unit is a creative idea that will also fit many spaces but it brings a more bulky and less airy feel.
Lower Shelving Units
Lower shelving units are also a nice idea but keep in mind that they won't add visual height to your space, which means that if your ceilings aren't that high, it's not a very good idea. If you want an airy feel, prefer a thin shelving unit of metal and glass or acryl, if you feel like more privacy, go for a shelving unit with baskets or boxes inserted. Try modular box shelving to create your own configurations or make changes as often as you like.
