I prefer leaning them against the wall as well - but we're outdoors so eventually they have to be covered.  Currently that means they go onto a stainless wire shelf covered by a tarp.  It seems every time I go to the studio it has been improved with everything organized in yet a new better way, with new containers so each time I get to relearn where everything is.  It reminds me of a bad joke where Helen Keller's parents would punish her by rearranging the furniture.

 

Just leaning against the wall next to the kilns.

 

 

I share my studio with a guy who loves to redesign and evolve the studio into a well organised machine so I know your pain.

 

I very much remember where things are by what I was doing when I last used them, not the type of guy to organise things unless a pile of stuff counts  ;)

 

 

What I would give to have a guy like that!

leaning against the wall, by the kiln.  No room really, for them to be anywhere else.

Vertically on a cart for electric kiln shelves.  Gas shelves vertical, leaning on a wall.  Eventually I will be making some fancy shelf carts like pictured below (I think @Alfred?)

Small 4-wheeled cart that holds the half-shelves (all I ever use) plus a place to store the kiln furniture, Orton cone boxes, a coffee can sized batch of kiln wash, and (if I'm lucky) a cone pack that is ready to go.\.  Just about everything is on wheels in the garagio..except for the wheel (and I just realized how odd that sounds).

Its an old-habit-dies-hard thing, Chilly.  The space was a garage for so long, that it is hard to call it a studio....so, in the meantime it is a garagio  ;)
