I am always looking for unique cubicle storage options since there simply isn’t a lot of space in my small working space. As a member of Cubicle Nation, I try as best I can to make the best of my work situation. I’m very happy to be employed so I try not to complain about wanting a more spacious office.
So, trying to add some strategic cubicle accessories that work for my office is certainly one of my highest priorities. I found this hanging corner shelf unit made by VerticalMate online and had to have it. I immediately liked the way it could be hung in a corner which basically took no space away from me and added some much-needed storage.
I had a specific purpose for my corner wall shelf and it was to hold my lunch box (see images below). My lunch box has a strap that I used to hang from a cubicle clip on the wall of my cubicle. The only problem was that the lunch container was so heavy when it was full, it was causing a rip in the fabric of my cubicle wall. When I saw this small wall shelf with hooks, I knew I could not only place my lunch box on it, but I could also hang my keys from one of the hooks. What is so great about it is that it is a floating wall shelf so there are no hangers that are visible which gives it a really clean and classy look. I actually found this shelf after I wrote this article which speaks to the many different varieties of office shelves that are available. Well, you can add this floating corner shelf to the large list!

One thing about this particular shelf versus the cubicle shelf in this article is that the stainless steel needles or pins that are used in the cubicle shelf are attached to the side of the shelf with an adhesive backing. With this floating wall shelf with hooks, the clips with the needles that sink into the wall fabric are inserted into keyhole-like openings in the sides of the shelf and hold solid without any adhesive backing. Both methods work fine since I've had my cubicle shelf for almost a year now and it has been solid as a rock on my cubicle wall.
