Coordinated cabinets for a traditional space
Coordinated cabinets for a modern look
Secure your furniture to the wall
Always remember to securely fasten any large, tall, or heavy piece of furniture to prevent it from tipping over. It’s an easy way to minimise risks and keep your home safe.
Flexible shelving for any room of the house
Fit any need with a storage system that you can add on to and change as needed.
Get heavy duty garage storage shelves and units with the industrial look of black work benches or wheeled utility carts topped with durable hardwood. Or keep tools and equipment in metal indoor/outdoor cabinets or on a metal wire rack shelf unit.
Easily store smaller things like make-up and clothing accessories in storage trays that keep things organised and are ready to slide out when you need them. Use a combination of drawers, cabinets, and cube storage to neatly tuck away shoes, clothes, and raincoats in the hall closet by the door or in your bedroom wardrobe.
Finding ingredients that you need is easier when they’re smartly stored on wire racks that allow you to see everything. For kitchen pantry storage, there are wire shelving units that combine for several purposes. For instance, you can store kitchen equipment and serving trays on storage racks positioned in between two racks of metal shelving holding your growing wine collection as well as bottles of sparkling water. Use the top racks to hang herbs for drying and, as with rustic wooden or industrial metal shelving units, you can place things on top for additional storage.
Whether at work or at your home office, it’s best to smartly maximise space with smart storage solutions that help you stay organised and keep your space looking clean. Perhaps go with a wooden combination storage solution that has the flexibility to either serve as a sideboard or be placed vertically. The inserts allow you to rearrange cabinets and drawers that keep paperwork and office supplies organised and out of sight, while the shelving units are ready to hold books, plants or awards. Also great for smaller spaces are wall mounted white shelving units with drawer inserts or white stained oak shelving units with metal legs that can hold books, magazines or smart storage bins that slide right in.
Staggered wall mounted wooden storage combinations that run up the wall in different colours are great for keeping towels, toiletries and extra soap and shampoo within easy reach in the bathroom. For tight spaces, go with tall wire corner shelves that can hold everything you need to start your day and stay looking fresh.
Modular shelving units
Whether using freestanding, wall-mounted or as room divider, IKEA smart shelving units are always just the beginning in adding practical convenience to any space. Try combining whichever storage shelf you choose with drawers, shelves, cabinets, or slide-in boxes for simple storage that adapts to your needs.
