Hobbyroom storage furniture. Your suggestions

Hello all,

Recently moved into a new place. The hobby room is a pretty decent room size, and I’m thinking about storage.

We’ll be here for a long while, and thus want something pleasant rather than industrial just do a job for a bit kind of thing.

A decent tall cupboard with doors and shelves within.

Any thoughts on something a bit softer than a Jumbo, or Coop Bau solution? Prefer to avoid IKEA this time.

Cheers

Maybe something here? And if not, perhaps some ideas.

I know you said no IKEA, but this book shelf is actually quite nice. I have one in the kitchen and two in the hobby room and am very happy with them. It is solid wood, except for the back. Doors are optional on them.

I think all of these shops are closed at the moment.

Yeah, that is pretty nice to be fair.

My son built a wonderful kitchen in a hobby room for me, to use for my mobile dental hygiene practice (to go to senior homes). It has worked out very well. You can reach him at www.swisscarpenter.com, where he has been working.

Re: Hobbyroom storage furniture. Your suggestions

If you're looking for tall cabinets with shelves and doors, try doing a search for the word "mehrzweckschrank." I wish I had bought something like these for our spare room storage instead of bookshelves, because everything on the bookshelves collects dust so badly.

e.g.

Re: Hobbyroom storage furniture. Your suggestions

You can pick up second hand furniture shelving and cupboards on ricardo.ch for next to nothing. Tutti.ch is normally more expensive.Since they are private sales they are not affected by the current restrictions. There are still people around like me that like to see second hand stuff reused and in the case of furniture it is so cheap because the demand is low and the cost/inconvenience of disposal is high - many sales stipulate that collection is a must.

This is perfect, just what were looking for. Completely agree about dusty bookshelves.

Thanks a lot

Re: Hobbyroom storage furniture. Your suggestions

Very often those cupboards "mehrzweckschrank" do not have shelves which hold the same weight as bookcases. We also wanted storage with doors but wanted shelves with a decent weight tolerance.

Re: Hobbyroom storage furniture. Your suggestions

Long ago an old man told me that unless you really know your strengths of materials, including not just the shelf but whatever they're mounted upon, and the weight of what you're going to store, a general good rule for household goods and for books, is that the shelf should not be wider than 80cm. Longer than that, and they tend to sag.
