The ultimate guide to tambour units: how to choose the best one for your space

Tambour units are versatile storage solutions that have been around for centuries. From roll-top desks to modern office spaces, these units offer a unique blend of style, convenience, and functionality. However, with so many different types and styles available, it can be difficult to choose the right one for your space. In this article, we'll explore the different types of tambour units available and provide tips on how to choose the best one for your needs.

What is a Tambour Unit?

A tambour unit is a type of storage unit that consists of a series of sliding slats or panels that roll up and down to open and close. These units can be used in a variety of settings, including homes, offices, and other commercial spaces. Tambour units are known for their sleek design and space-saving capabilities, as they take up less room than traditional cabinets or shelves.

Types of Tambour Units

There are several types of tambour units available, each with its own unique features and benefits. The most common types of tambour units include:

  1. Vertical Tambour Units - These units are designed to be installed on a wall or in a corner and feature a vertical orientation. They typically have a narrow profile, making them ideal for small spaces.

  2. Horizontal Tambour Units - These units are designed to be installed on a tabletop or other horizontal surface and feature a horizontal orientation. They can be used for a variety of purposes, including as a desk organizer or storage unit for books and other items.

  3. Corner Tambour Units - These units are designed to fit into a corner and feature a triangular shape. They are ideal for small spaces where traditional cabinets or shelves may not fit.

  4. Mobile Tambour Units - These units feature wheels or casters, making them easy to move around as needed. They are ideal for use in offices or other commercial spaces where flexibility is important.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Tambour Unit

When choosing a tambour unit, there are several factors to consider to ensure that you choose the best one for your space. These factors include:

  1. Size - The size of the tambour unit will depend on the amount of space you have available and the items you plan to store. Be sure to measure your space carefully and choose a unit that fits within the available space.

  2. Material - Tambour units can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, and plastic. Consider the durability, style, and maintenance requirements of each material before making a final decision.

  3. Style - Tambour units are available in a variety of styles, from traditional to modern. Consider the overall style of your space and choose a unit that complements your existing decor.

  4. Functionality - Consider how you plan to use the tambour unit and choose a unit that meets your specific needs. For example, if you plan to store heavy items, you may need a unit with sturdy shelves and a strong frame.

  5. Accessibility - Tambour units can be accessed from the top, bottom, or sides. Consider how you plan to access the unit and choose a unit with the appropriate access points.

Tambour units are a versatile and stylish storage solution that can be used in a variety of settings. When choosing a tambour unit, it's important to consider the size, material, style, functionality, and accessibility of the unit to ensure that you choose the best one for your needs. With the right tambour unit, you can maximize your storage space while adding a touch of style and functionality to your home or office.
