Modular storage is a big hit with the condo class, occupying space in units across cities like Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver.
They combine convenient, portable design with modern trends in interior design and offer a flexible, affordable way to organize wardrobe and more.
If you’re considering adding some modular organizers to your home, here is a quick pros-and-cons list.
Pro – Flexibility in Design
Modular storage can be used for anything from storing clothes to shoes, books, toys, and household plants. They’re very flexible in function and design, many pieces of modular organization allow for some customization.
Pro – They Save Space
If you aren’t fortunate enough to have the storage already built in on your unit, you can easily add it yourself. Modular shelving can be placed almost anywhere in a condo, apartment, or home. Fit them neatly where you need storage the most.
Con – Heavy Isn’t Good
Don’t expect modular organization to be where you put your dumbbells and machinery. These shelves can’t necessarily bear the weight of heavier items, especially if it’s made from plastic. Fortunately, there are modular shelves meant for heavier loads. Do your research, look at customer reviews, and consider the added expense.
Pro – Easy to Install
Modular shelves and storage are easy to assemble and disassemble. If you’re a renter, this is excellent. They aren’t going to create any damage to the unit and if you have to move, any modular storage can easily be taken down and with you. No hammer. No nails. For novices at modular storage, there’s not much to it.
Pro – They Look Modern
Modular isn’t your traditional storage option. It looks contemporary, trendy, and urban. Renters adore them in large part because of the aesthetic which holds appeal over more traditional shelving systems.
Con – Some Are Built Cheap
Modular shelves in Canada are very affordable. Sometimes, they can also be built very, very cheap. If you want modular shelves, look for a reliable brand that you trust.
