Yes, you are using the garage for storage already, but the space is not being used efficiently and you can never find what you want. It seems to have become home for all types of sports equipment, tools, machines, and a collection of family stuff. The garage's original purpose for parking the cars and a small workout area seem to have been lost in the mess of it all.
The older corner type shelves used to have a decorative wood or metal bracket that would be visible. Although it was easily seen, it was made to blend into the decor of the room. With the modern corner shelves, they can be hung with out any of the brackets being seen. You can still get a large number with decorative wall brackets, but a floating type design has become so much more popular.
In these cases not only does this storage serve a very useful purpose, in these applications the storage can also take a very decorative purpose as well. When you think of a family room you think of furniture as the predominant feature in this room. The one thing that can add to and sometimes tips the scales of good design in a room largely dominated by furniture are accessories. Many of these design-making accessories, minus pictures, wall hangings and artwork, will need to placed somewhere. That is where shelves for the home can take of a more decorative role in the home. From ornate mantles, to bold and tall bookcases, shelving can be a significant player in a homes design scheme.
