Used Commercial Shelving in Your Home | Used Second Hand

The idea of bringing used warehouse shelving into the home for both fashion and functionality is by no means new.  This has long been a craze in the interior design world, and it isn’t going anywhere because it is so useful while at the same time so trendy.

If you like the idea of repurposing used shelving in your home, but aren’t quite sure what to do with it, you’ll be happy to know that it works beautifully in a lot of areas.  Some possible uses are:

Used Shelving for Book Storage

Used storage shelves make for excellent bookcases.  You can either paint them to spruce them up a bit, or rough them up a bit to give a shabby chic feel and really embrace the industrial aspect.

Used Warehouse Shelving for CDs and DVDs

Do you have an extensive collection of CDs and DVDs?  The blend of the modern media with the industrial equipment is visually pleasing and is perfect for that modern industrial look.

Used Metal Shelving for Sewing Equipment

Between sewing machines, over-lockers, fabrics, cotton reels, pins and needles (and their storage containers), sewing equipment and accessories can take up a lot of room.  You want a storage solution that can hold a lot of heavy items, and still look stylish while doing it.  For this, second hand industrial storage is perfect.

Used Storage Shelves for Shoes

Do you find yourself with more shoes than space?  This is a common problem, but one that is easily solved.  Used metal shelving presents a perfect solution, holding a large amount of shoes while making your bedroom trendier.

Used Commercial Shelving for Garden Displays

We are increasingly seeing metal accessories brought into gardens.  Items such as old pull-carts, for example, are commonly filled with soil and used to display special plants and flowers.  With this in mind, used warehouse shelving presents an excellent way to bring metal accessories into your garden.  You could even rough it up with sandpaper to give it that weathered look and then adorn it with plants and perhaps ornamental gardening accessories.
