There’s a reason the industrial look is so popular.
Since its conception in the early 2000s, the industrial look has become an interior design industry favourite. A phenomenon that is primarily due to its seamless combination of style and functionality.
And there’s no better way to bring this ultra-modern look to life in your home than with the help of our industrial-grade shelving units and storage!
Are you ready to give your home a modern industrial makeover? Look no further for industrial shelving ideas.
Here are five ideas that will prove to you that industrial shelving units and drawers can fit into the interior design of every room in your house or apartment.
1. A BETTER BOOKSHELF
Horace Mann said, “A house without books is like a room without windows.”
By that logic, the more books you collect, the better your view will become…? While that may not be true, you’re going to need somewhere pretty sturdy to display a library or just perhaps plants and beautiful things you have gathered.
And, that’s where industrial shelving units come in.
If you’re looking to support any library or the amount of soil needed for your favourite plants, our heavy-duty industrial shelving is ideal. Maintain a stylish, contemporary look with our bookish shelving ideas. On top of that, with adjustable shelves, you’ll be able to grow your shelving units as your collection expands.
2. THE ULTIMATE OFFICE SPACE
Are you looking for a desk that’s strong enough to take on your toughest assignments but also looks so good you won’t close the study door?
With a little bit of creativity, you can turn our 4 Drawer Mobile Unit into a sturdy and stylish desk that can help you take on whatever projects come your way.
On top of that, urban shelving units can also help you organise your office once and for all. You’ll have plenty of room to store all your odds and ends and give your office an ultra-sleek and modern industrial makeover with our shelving ideas.
3. HOW TO BUILD A HOMEMADE BAR ON A BUDGET
If there is one thing we have learned from 2020, it’s that having a homemade bar may not be such a bad idea.
A DIY homemade bar is a perfect weekend project, and best of all, it doesn’t have to come with a huge price tag.
Renovating the garage or a spare room is a great option, but it requires a big budget. Using urban-style shelving units – and a touch of creativity – can help you achieve a stylish homemade bar to entertain your friends and family over the weekend, and, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
So, what are you waiting for? Start making your homemade bar plans today.
4. INDUSTRIAL LOOK KITCHENS
If you’re looking to make a statement, an industrial-style kitchen can do just that.
It doesn’t always have to be just about exposed brick walls and wood beams. You can also achieve an industrial look by using heavy-duty shelving and the ever-useful pegboards to give your kitchen an urban aesthetic.
See how pegboards provide a space for everything within easy reach? There are just so many options when you start looking at industrial shelving ideas and other innovations for storing your items.
Industrial shelving units are an easy alternative and are usually a big hit with guests.
5. UNIQUE SIDEBOARD
Sideboards are often generic and are hard to distinguish from one another.
If you agree with that sentence and have been looking for other options, using a mobile storage cabinet might be what you’ve been looking for.
It will make for an eye-catching addition to your living or dining room, achieving a stylish industrial look you can show off to your friends when they visit.

6. ON-TREND, EXPOSED WARDROBE
Finally, there’s no such thing as having too much storage. Especially for those with an extensive wardrobe and (send help) no built-ins!
If you need a little extra help holding all your stuff together, our range of chrome units is the perfect solution. Get organised with a cool, industrial New York loft apartment vibe! We also recently launched a new range of urban wardrobe items in matte black that are so functional but look super stylish as well!
Because you can control the height of the unit, you could go for full wall-to-wall shelving or spread them out as you need.
You’ll have an industrial-chic storage solution that will help you keep your life in order. And if you need more room, you can always opt for one of our shelving ideas.
