Posted on Apr 28, 2016 by

When it comes to larger storage solutions in the home, the challenge is often to find something that is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. The Warehouse Home team has scoured some of our favourite sources for the best industrial style storage solutions. From the raw charm of vintage originals to sturdy modern industrial style storage, here are 5 units that will keep your home tidy and give your guests something to talk about.

Sourced from 1930’s France by Turner & Cox, the wooden storage unit below has open frame sides and 9 good sized drawers. It still features its original blue paint, which has become worn with the unit’s regular use, adding to the unique character.

Combining a soft pastel green and classic locker detailing, this metal unit is a great way to channel a softer industrial look. It bears some scratches and scars from its former life, but again these only add to its character.

For a contemporary solution with character, look no further than this industrial mesh cupboard from Vincent and Barn. We particularly like the rivet detailing surrounding the mesh doors.

If space is slightly more limited, this brilliant metal plate rack can hold plenty of items and add an industrial chic edge at the same time. It’s obviously well suited to holding crockery in the kitchen, but it could also be put to use to hold books and other accessories. The galvanised metal racks are available in different sizes and can be hung individually or in a grouping, horizontally or vertically.
