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.

Garage shelving

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.

Closet shelving

Easily store smaller things like make-up and clothing accessories in storage trays that keep things organized 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.

Kitchen storage

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.

Office shelving

Whether at work or at your home office, it’s best to smartly maximize space with smart storage solutions that help you stay organized 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 organized 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.

Bathroom shelving

Staggered wall mounted wooden storage combinations that run up the wall in different colors 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 used freestanding, wall-mounted or as room divider, IKEA smart shelving units are always just the beginning in adding practicalconvenience to any space. Try combining whichever storage shelf you choose with drawers, shelves, cabinets or slide-in boxes forsimple storage that adapts to your needs.
