Creative School Storage Ideas for Classroom & Supply Organization

creative-classroom-storage-ideasSchools often have limited space and little funding to expand their classrooms, which are only getting smaller as the number of students increases. Education professionals, then, need to make the most of the space they already have. Here are a few storage ideas you can use to save space and improve the look and organization of your school classroom, supply room, or science lab.

Classroom Mobile Shelving

For general supply shelving such as textbooks, art supplies, athletic gear, library books, sheet music, and more, mobile shelving is the perfect solution. Classrooms, textbook rooms, and other storage areas in schools are often filled to capacity, but you can easily reduce the amount of floor space you use by getting rid of aisles between rows of shelving. This way, you can use only the space you need, when you need it.

Classroom & Science Lab Modular Casework

classroom-school-storage-ideasWhen it comes to classroom furniture, schools need affordable and functional solutions. Casework provides a solid solution and a fast return on investment that guarantees years of use. Since educational environments are always changing, you can also relocate or reconfigure the casework at any time. This is due to its modular components, which allow hassle-free installation that requires no building modifications. With a variety of finishes and configurations you can design yourself, modular casework is perfect for science labs, computer and technology labs, music rooms, libraries, staff areas, art rooms, and much more.

Smart Lockers

Handling mail for university students on campus takes up a significant amount of time and resources. Between classes, holiday rushes, and limited storage space, there are many opportunities for packages to get misplaced, damaged, or stolen. Smart lockers provide a convenient way for students to retrieve their mail at any time and without time-consuming manual management. When a package is delivered, the system notifies the student via text or email for them to pick up at any time of day or night. Meanwhile, the delivery is securely stored in its own locker that can only be accessed by the student.
