Wood printer stand is convenient for keeping items that you need on hand for day to day tasks. But just hammering a few shelves and stacking things on them looks messy and unplanned. Determine what you can best use the space for and then choose shelves that work well and look even better.
Narrow picture printer cabinet with doors that hold pressure or mounted samples are ideal for a home office with a focus on design. Photographers, graphic designers, clothing and decorators can all use visual inspiration or a way to keep track of ongoing work. Framed pictures, small bulletin boards dressed in fabric or wallpaper samples, sketches, drawings and other visual instructions are just a glance from the computer screen and can be replaced for new art as needed.
An office in a large printer stand usually has more vertical space than horizontal. Maximize the use of the area closet, keep reference materials within reach and avoid hassle with color and a high shelf or two. Paint the entire wardrobe interior a matte color. Black is dramatic, suggests deep and looks sharp, but dark tin, pale vanilla cream or some shades that complement the interior can work. Install a shelf for books and magazines that run around the entire wardrobe interior and set another shelf above it for larger items, files and speakers. Anchor the shelves properly because they will support a lot of weight.
In a converted garage, wind or outhouse, visible support beams can be expanded to create a shelf system. Tuck a desk under a window and paint the walls and beams a solid, bright color or white. Use existing exposed support framing to keep books and storage boxes. Add some extra beams or slices for more storage under the window or between angled beams. Shelves can be hung in a front-facing cabinet that opens up above the computer desk. Paint exteriorizes to match the wall and meet cabinet with cork tiles. When the cabinet fronts are down, the shelves are hidden, although it takes a few seconds to reveal them. Cork tiles keep reminders, ideas, lists, drawings – whatever the office requires. Maximum storage can be pressed from a small space without risk of mess. And you never have to dust the shelves.
Whatever material you use to build your desk, you will probably want to paint or color the surface. Use a color recommended by the manufacturer for the material you used either plywood, wood or MDF. The color is applied with a roll, with a larger role for large areas and a smaller scroll for edges and corners. Also, consider adding a coat of paint to protect the painted or colored surface from scratches from a monitor stand, mouse or keyboard.
