Versatile & Beautiful Skandia Sometime in the mid-1990⿿s, when we were still living in a 2-bedroom townhouse, we needed to save space for all our ⿿stuff.⿝ After reviewing different shelving systems extensively, we decided on the Skandia because of its versatility. We could choose from four Skandia shelf heights: 35", 50", 67" and 82". We could combine three shelf widths: 20", 32", and 40." We could also decide on a shelf depth of 12⿝ or 16⿝ depending on our needs. We began with a basic library set using 82⿝ tall and 12⿝ deep uprights to hold two 32⿝ wide shelves. We were so delighted with the functionality and good looks of our 64⿝ x 12⿝ x 82⿝ bookshelf that we quickly expanded to a full set of storage shelves in the dining room. Because of the Skandia⿿s versatility, we also decided to set up a computer work station in the living room using the 16⿝ deep system ⿿ which is perfect for computers and other electronic equipment like printers, scanners, and stereo components. The results were amazing! Our computer work station was very functional, and the dining room shelves looked like they had been part of the original townhouse design! In fact, when we tried to sell our townhouse, several buyers wanted to make sure the shelving would stay. Naturally, the shelving was going with us ⿿ it was going to be perfect for my husband⿿s office in our new single-family home. In our new home, we began with the Skandia components we already had and added drawers, saloon doors, and another 20-inch section to complete the shelves for one wall of my husband⿿s office. For the other wall, my husband improved his work station by adding two 12⿝ shelves as pull-out keyboard tray and document holder. Then he added other components to create additional shelving space. We are so delighted with our Skandia purchase over the years and would recommend the system to everyone. The Skandia system is durable: we⿿ve had different iterations of our Skandia furniture for about 16 years, and it has withstood heavy loads, multiple tear-downs for home moving and flooring change, and multiple rearrangements to suit different needs. The system is versatile: we⿿ve made so many different modifications to our Skandia furniture to suit different needs ⿿ add a printer shelf here, create space for a scanner there, put some doors here, shove a filing cabinet under there, install some drawers here, adjust shelves for DVD⿿s there, make a storage area up here for a revolving CD rack, set up the stereo system there, hollow out space for an antique Jesus of Nazarene sculpture, etc. Finally, the Skandia is handsome: its light satin finish ages beautifully and goes well with any color scheme. My husband⿿s office is the best-looking and most functional room in our house because it is so well-put-together ⿿ thanks to Skandia! May 5, 2013

I'm considering adding another upright and shelves and I'm wondering what shelf size to order? And it seems that I'll need another cross bar as well, is this correct? Thanks so much for you help!

An enterprising cabinetmaker decided, rather than repeat the expensive, time-consuming process of building custom shelving on-site for every customer, to design a versatile system of adjustable, solid wood shelving that could be made in a factory and then assembled easily in the customer's home or place of business. Since then, thousands have discovered the incomparable advantage of Skandia Shelving - custom shelving without the custom cost. The Container Store Skandia Shelving offers components in four heights, three widths and two depths. Each of our Best-Selling Combinations can be adjusted in height, depth or width to accommodate your personal needs by simply switching some of the basic components. Contact Us or call us at 1-888-266-8246 for assistance in customizing or creating a Skandia Shelving solution that's tailored to your needs.
