Garden Mile® Heavy Duty 5 Tier

Multipurpose Piece of Furniture

The Garden Mile® Heavy Duty 5 Tier shelving unit is an excellent versatile home storage solution. It is perfect for use in entryways, garages, sheds, workshops, offices, and warehouses. The product features 5 heavy-duty shelves made of 6.8mm MDF boards that can hold up to incredible 180kg. The great news is that it's up to you to configure the shelves as you wish and choose the height between the shelves to your preference. Therefore, you can store there not only all types of shoes (including large work boots) but also some other stuff like tools, bottles, food, pots of paint, books, clothes, etc.

The product is very firm and durable. Even when the shelf is fully loaded, it won't sag under the heavy weight. The only minor drawback is that it comes with confusing assembly instructions. However, you shouldn't worry, as the unit is pretty easy to put together. You won't need screws or nails for its assembly; all you will need to do is insert metal pieces into the notches (you might need a hammer for this).

HOMFA Natural Bamboo

So Functional

If you're looking for a high-quality rack that wouldn't break the bank, the HOMFA 2-tier organiser is an answer. Made of natural bamboo, it's absolutely non-toxic and eco-friendly. The item is finished with varnish lacquer that looks sleek and brings a little nature into your entry hall or any other room. With its smooth surface and rounded corners, the rack is safe for small children.

The product comes flat-packed with clear instructions and all screws with the Allen key included. The assembly is quite straightforward, and even if you have no DIY skills, you can put it together within 20 minutes. Although the rack is very spacious, it has a surprisingly small footprint, which makes it a marvellous addition to narrow halls.

The HOMFA shoe organiser has 2 tiers - each of them can fit 3 pairs of shoes width-wise, meaning you can store up to 6 pairs of shoes on the rack. Of course, you can also put your shoes on the top level, but it's much better to use it as a stand for accessories or as a sturdy bench to sit on and change your shoes.
