Top Custom Shelving related questions

Choosing the best material for your shelves is part of the process you can go through with your Tasker. If you live in an area where the winters are extreme or have fluctuating temperatures too often, you may want to avoid wood since it can crack. Cement won’t be a great choice if you’re only renting since you’ll need to have it demolished when you move out.

Most definitely. Some people are intimidated by the idea of custom shelving because the costs aren’t as upfront as compared to buying mass-produced racks in stores. However, small spaces are best utilised with shelves made to measure! You can be sure that every column and drawer has a purpose. Figuring out how to mix and match with other furniture also won’t be a problem anymore!

A Tasker can gladly help you visualise the custom shelving for your home, office, or store. Since custom shelving is made according to your specifications, you can ask your Tasker to send you visual renders before the actual building process. This will save you money and energy in the long run if something doesn’t look right.

This is something that you will have to discuss with your Tasker separately. Some offer the complete service, from designing to installing shelves in your home. However, some Taskers require that you pick up the shelf from their workshop. You can pick it up with a hired truck or book a separate delivery service instead!

If you are handy with woodwork, welding or construction, this will be an excellent project for you. There are dozens of tutorials online. Most equipment needed is available in your local hardware, albeit often expensive. If your main reason for opting to DIY is to save money, try putting up a task first and see how much Taskers offer for the service! It might be cheaper since you don’t have to invest in your own tools and materials. 

Yes! Whether you are renovating parts of your home or you need a helping hand with your interior design business, hiring a Tasker is a great option to get more done. Whatever your budget is, you might find experienced labourers and furniture designers here on our platform.

What do custom shelving services include?

Furnishing a home or commercial space isn’t always as easy as hitting the checkout button on an online shop. Some rooms aren’t perfectly squared, and not all store-bought racks meet your needs. These instances call for custom-made pieces that are designed for your circumstances. It’s a good thing that you can now connect with professionals offering bespoke shelving near you on Airtasker. Here are some common areas that might need custom shelves:

Bedroom shelves

A bedroom is the centre of a home. It’s where you can rest, relax, and recuperate from the daily hustle and bustle. The bedroom is also where we keep most of our personal items and valuables, such as clothes, mementoes, and jewellery. Having too much clutter can make you feel outright irritated or uncomfortable. After all, clean space can be a haven for a clear mind. Airtasker can match you with designers specialising in bedroom layouts and labourers who can build closets and vanity tables for you. This way, you can maximise your room for both storage and sleep.

Kitchen and bath shelves

The kitchen and bath are also essential areas in every living space. Whether you are looking for someone to repair a dilapidated kitchen cupboard or you need efficient shelving for a rental property, you are in the right place. You can do away with the long hours of searching when you hire someone via Airtasker. You only need to put up a task and let the Taskers in your area send you offers. 

You’ll be surprised at how much custom shelving can change your quality of living. Hide big ovens, store bags of groceries, and organise your cleaning supplies without worrying about how much space they will take. Your Tasker will figure it out for you!

Shopfront shelves

Displaying your products in the best angle and light is so crucial for every shop. If you don’t hang shelves the right way, it will be difficult for your customers to find out what’s available and buy. No one would want to rummage over piles and piles of unorganised items. Plus, placing one thing over another without support can lead to damaging your goods. That’s a significant loss for your business right there. Airtasker can help you connect with designers with experience in visual merchandising or even furniture companies that can build branded racks for all of your stores.

Office shelves

Shelves are needed in every workspace. There are often files, equipment, and inventory that needs to be catalogued. Every wasted square foot in your office is misused capital. Let Taskers build and assemble your shelves in an orderly pattern. This is not only efficient usage of the floor area. It can also lead to faster and more organised work for you and your staff. Custom shelving is an excellent business investment because you can be sure of the quality.
