Planning Some Shelves? Can I design my own layout? Sure you can!


If you’re planning on doing the measurements yourself, here are some pointers to help guide you along your way:

  1. Measure everything. This includes your ceiling height and the width of space you want to fill in. Don’t forget to include your baseboard height. 
  2. Measure any components that will fit into your system. (i.e. TV, Radio, or Computer).
  3. Make a rough sketch with your measurements and e-mail Shelf Shop Guy to discuss and prepare a quote.
  4. Be sure to include the colors and type of shelves/cabinets you would like to use.
  5. For a non-refundable fee ($80 main location / $25 each additional location), Shelf Shop Guy will come to your home to consult and measure.
