How to Style: Wire Shelves

These wire shelves are a must in small apartments. This versatile piece offers both form and function: sturdy shelves whose height you can adjust to fit your belongings accordingly.



1. These shelves are wide and deep, so use baskets, woven boxes, and magazine files to store small items, clothes, and clutter.

2. Think multifunctional, especially if you live in a small space or studio apartment. In our example, the shelves serve as 1 part closet, 1 part entertainment center, and 1 part dressing table complete with jewelry, perfume, and make-up brushes.

3. Keep items you use less frequently on the top and bottom shelves.


1. Smaller appliances that often take up precious counter top space can find a home here. Think toaster oven, blender, espresso machine, microwave, etc.

2. Lay a cutting board, marble board, or tray to allow storing of smaller items like flatware, food items, or salt and pepper shakers. Display your flatware in mason jars instead of hiding it away in a drawer. (Our advice: save drawer space for less attractive items like aluminum foil and plastic wrap.)

3. Hide the less visually appealing items at the bottom (pans, pots, etc.) and place pretty dishware on the shelves that are eye-level.

I will be putting a version of this in my kitchen in about 3 weeks so stay tuned!
