Any avid traveler knows the importance of bringing the right suitcase with them. The perfect suitcase should be able to accommodate all the necessities you will need while exploring a new city or simply kicking back in a comfortable spot.
Innovations in luggage design have made suitcases more spacious and maneuverable than ever before. These have added plenty of comforts for travelers. However, a recent development has expanded their functionality to a great degree.
Luggage with shelves is the hottest new trend being embraced by travelers bitten by the wanderlust bug. As their name implies, these are suitcases with folding compartments that double as shelves when the bag is laid down and kept in its “open” position.
This innovation in suitcase design opens up a world of possibilities for travelers, and we feel it is worth pointing out a few of the many unique and exciting ways luggage with shelves can make your next trip extra special. So let’s dive into it!
1. Makeshift Vanity Dresser
Your travels may take you to exotic locations around the globe and give you a chance to interact with different cultures and indulge in unique cuisines. However, each location you stay in may not offer the perks and conveniences that your bedroom would offer. In some cases, you might not even have access to a vanity dresser.
Whether you’re staying at a minimalist guest house, a tent in the forest, or a seaside hut, you don’t want to be left without a place to store your makeup. The good news is that you won’t have to worry about this problem if you have luggage with shelves.
The unique suitcases from Royce & Rocket feature solid and sturdy shelves that are large enough to keep your favorite lipsticks, eyeshadows, concealers, and brushes. Its 31 inch size gives it an edge over the 30 inch luggage offerings from other manufacturers. The suitcase is also designed to handle heavier items, so you can place a hand mirror on the shelves and use it to perfect your look before heading to your next travel destination.
2. Beach Buddy
Visiting the beach in different countries is always a fun experience. After all, no two beaches are ever alike. Whether you’re visiting the white sandy beaches in the Caribbean or the pebbly lakeside beaches in Canada, it is essential to have travel accessories with you to make your experience more comfortable. However, the natural elements can often get in the way of your enjoyment.
This is another place where luggage with shelves could be useful. You can place folded towels on the shelves and keep them away from the sand until you’re ready to dry off after a swim. You can also use the shelves to store your phone, sunscreen, and sunglasses and access them easily.
The suitcase is designed to remain in its open position once the shelves are unfolded, so you won’t have to worry about the wind knocking it shut. This means there are plenty of exciting things to do when you have luggage with shelves with you at the beach.
3. Picnicking in Paradise
Who doesn’t love a good picnic in the Spring or Summer? Picnics are a great way to experience the outdoors and take in some fresh country air. However, bringing along all the necessities and setting up your picnic spot can be a hassle if your goal is to pack light.
You will be glad to know that luggage with shelves can be helpful in this situation too. Our special 31-inch luggage offering comes with numerous packing cubes to help store the different picnic essentials you would like to bring with you. This includes snacks in containers, cutlery, disposable cups, and a variety of food and drink items.
Once you’ve set up your ground cover in your desired spot, you can open up your suitcase and arrange different items on the shelves for easy access. This makes the luggage with shelves a great addition for group picnics where you would like to arrange different items in an easy-to-reach place for your fellow picnickers in the absence of a table.
4. Keeping Your Memories Close
Planning to be away from home for an extended period of time? You can always combat homesickness by bringing photos of your loved ones with you. The shelves on our large luggage offerings are perfect for storing framed photos when you have limited space. The best part is that these shelves don’t take up any additional room in your luggage.
You can open your suitcase and unfold the shelves before arranging your favorite photos on them without disturbing the contents stored in the suitcase’s bottom half. These shelves remain rock steady so you won’t need to worry about your favorite photos falling down as long as the suitcase is placed on a flat and horizontal surface.
5. Drinker’s Delight
If you’re the kind of person that loves making mixed drinks in exotic locations, you can be sure our luggage with shelves will come in handy. You can keep different drink bottles, bitters, glasses, and a cocktail shaker secure in your luggage until you reach your desired location.
You can then use the shelves to arrange your drink accessories and mix your favorite drinks for yourself and your travel companions. There’s nothing quite like mixing your own piña colada at the beach using your own makeshift travel bar. Try this strategy on your next travel outing to an exotic location.
6. Hot Springs Companion
Many people smitten by wanderlust enjoy visiting locations with hot springs. These locations are especially fun to visit during the cooler months of the year. Whether you’re visiting the Banjar Hot Springs in Indonesia or the Yangpachen Hot Springs in Tibet, you can always expect to have a calm and relaxing time.
No hot springs experience is complete without bringing along a few accessories that you can keep within close reach. This includes towels, sandals, sunscreen, and drinking water. Your luggage’s shelves are the perfect place to store these while you unwind in the warm waters of the spring.
7. Airport Lounging
No one likes getting stuck at the airport due to a missed flight or unexpected delays. The good news is that your luggage with shelves can make this experience more tolerable. If you’re planning to spend several hours waiting for your flight, it may be a good idea to find a quiet spot and set up a small lounging space for yourself.
Simply open up your suitcase, unfold the shelves and set up your tablet computer to watch a film or your favorite TV shows. The right setup can go a long way in helping you beat various travel hurdles. Every seasoned traveler knows how to improvise in times of crisis, so don’t be afraid to get a bit creative with your luggage.
