Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love Metro Kitchen Shelving Bought two Metro Kitchen units to create a kitchen pantry in a home with limited kitchen storage. They are compact and sturdy, nice to look at and they hold a ton of food/appliance/cooking items - from a microwave oven to spice racks, bulk purchases and Costco-style cases of food items. Can also add hooks for pots and pans. Gives a nice urban feel to the kitchen. Assembly is easy. All you need is a rubber mallet. No screws!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution! My owner's closet was a mess. I was using stacked plastic tubs for storage and it seemed that, whatever I needed was always in the bottom tub. It was a nightmare! These shelves fit perfectly in my double closet and everything is easy to see and to reach....a perfect solution. I'm now thinking of getting these for my basement. I purchased an extra basket shelf for sheets and a shelf liner was also very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy organizer We moved to a smaller apartment and this place does not have much storage space. In order to better utilize our floor space, it's a must to go verticle. Since we have a lot of belongings in the moving boxes still (and yes, they are heavy), this shelves is durable enough to hold all our books, extra kitchen stuff (plates, bowls, mugs), and so on. We ended up purchase 4 set of special offer units and put them against a wall. Because of this change, our boxes are well-organized. Most importantly, our home is not cluttered with moving boxes and we have gained a lot more floor space to entertain. This set is not cheap but the quality is good. If you are looking for a shelving which can hold your heavy items, you won't go wrong with this unit. For the return of investment, it definitely worth the money as we know these 4 sets will last and go to next home with us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beverage and Mailing Station Wanting to consolidate cases of beverages in our garage, this shelf works wonderfully! The sturdy construction allows for large amounts of weight, rather than a flimsy plastic shelf system. It does take an extra set of hands to put the first shelf one, but once set in place, very easy to adjust the rest of the shelves. On the right top shelf, I added a Large 4-Sort Divider (purchased at The Container Store) to tame shipping boxes of various sizes. The divider is zip tied to the wire shelf for stability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from personal, flexible storage idea I'm not a very organized person,so my garage was a mess. I first saw another friend of mine who is using this shelving product at their garage. I did not know how useful these shelves can be but decided to give it a try. It turned out that I love it; so does my husband. My garage can store more items and more organized. Hence, I bought a second one. I'd recommend anyone to buy an extra shelve (only $25 extra) when the original product only comes with four shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garage storage We bought three of these for storage in our garage. They are very strong and hold a lot of items. They also disappear into the walls which makes the garage feel and look bigger. Assembly was more or less a two person job (really 1.25, but more than one) but quite simple. We are pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Wow, hard to beat container store for overall customer service. I woke up on a rainy Sunday deciding it was high time for a garage cleaning/reorganization and saw these shelves on sale and they seemed perfect. I ordered online, they txted me within the hour my items were ready for pickup, I pulled up to front of store, called them, and they came out and loaded the car. Never even had to get out. Got home and enjoyed my rainy cleanup day. Shelves assembled really fast and easy with no tools. Do make sure to they give you the instruction sheet. Mine was missing so I called back and when she described what to do it was a breeze but I wouldn't have figured it out without knowing. And I did snap clips in the wrong place accidentally a couple time and she was right that a gentle tap with a rubber mallet fixed the problem. Great experience start to finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok These shelves are ok. After we put them together, which was a bit of a nightmare since we couldn't find instructions, and put our storage things on them, one of the shelves slipped down a few inches on one side, but the plastic grip didn't let it slide all the way. We only put light bins on them too. I wouldn't put heavy things on here, I won't be completely surprised if the next time I go to storage, one of these babies has fallen down. It hasn't yet though. I just don't see how the plastic grips can hold much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do you have a garage? You must consider this! If you need your storage room organized then you must consider this! I selected the silver version of this shelving solution for my garage and it goes PERFECT! The silver color is exclusive to the Container Store and it does help camouflage any little dust you may have. At the end it may be a pristine garage, but it's still a garage :) Building it was a breeze, my 11 year old niece could do it herself, no tools needed. A helper may be a good idea, since you will be trying to align 4 posts with the wire shelves. It fits 2 regular size containers in the same shelf side by side. What's not to love here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shelving unit! Our basement can be a little leaky after four days of rain. These shelves allow us to keep everything out of harms way and we don't need to worry about mold. They look great and each shelf can carry more weight than we will ever need to use. We're slowly swapping out our old plastic shelving with the InterMetro units. The initial cost is higher, but the quality of these units will pay for themselves in the long run. Highly recommend !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from InterMetro Shelves Great Product/Great Price As a professional organizer, I have been using these shelves to store hundreds of boxes for the last eight years. I continue to buy them as our business grows, and they are strong, sturdy, easy to assemble and easy to reconfigure. And the starter kit (four poles and four shelves) are a great price. Can't beat the value. The only thing we find we struggle with is sliding boxes across them easily if the plastic box has "feet"...and in that case, it's easier if you purchase the shelf liner to make sliding items on the shelf easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality! Excellent shelving unit for a really great price. I added two more shelves to get a total of five. Very easy to put together. I especially like the sturdiness of this unit. Unlike flimsy cheaper units, I know it will never warp and I know I will have this unit forever. Very wise purchase if you want something that will last and always look good. I also bought the shelf liners - again very high quality. I recommend this unit highly!

Community Q&A

Would this unit be stable enough if bottom shelf is removed to accomodate a radiator that is about 30-36" high?

Asked by: Grandmaof3
This 74-1/2" high unit should be assembled with at least three shelves. Install the bottom shelf as low as possible. For added stability, you can attach 18" Hanger Rails between the front and back Posts. Or, you can attach one 48" Hanger Rail between the back two Posts. See product recommendations below.

I am going nuts trying to fine the simple but *consistent* answer to this question: Which size, of the 3 choices (3,4,5) in inches, would be the correct steel caster for *this* unit ? Not plastic casters, 4 to a pack, thank you. We need the more sturdy of the two materials offered. Once we know which size will support *this* starter unit, I'd be able to place my order for 2 w/brakes and 2 w/out brakes. The plastic casters are too fragile for use on concrete basement floors, otherwise I'd use 4 of the 50+ in every imaginable size we've accumulated over the years, the wheels which accompany other storage units, shelving, cabinets, drawers & don't hold up on concrete. At TCS retail level, staff should be trained to understand more than just where the casters are located. At least post a chart for customers instructing them which caster is appropriate for their unit, InterMetro or Metro Commercial , then break it down from there. Why isn't this info listed in the Accessory Options similar to the clear plastic shelving covers etc ? thanks.

Shelf position(s)

I realize that shelves are intended to be set so that The Container Store logo is right side up but now I'm wondering (ut oh) if it would be possible to install a shelf or two upside down- the goal being to create a ledge. In so doing of course TCS logo would be upside down but that's not of consequence, I'm just wondering if it's even feasible. Also, re: optional wheels ($$) once the unit is fully assembled then I realized "Nuts, I should have bought those pesky wheels, after-all" will I need to dissemble the entire unit to install them or could I put them on very very carefully while it's fully assembled ? I hired a neighbor ,go-to- friend to assemble both units (unit #1 last year) but I know him, he won't re-do anything *ever* not even when it means more (twice) $$.
Asked by: cantusemyname
Our InterMetro Wire Shelves cannot be installed upside down due to the slightly conic design that secure each shelf in place. We recommend our InterMetro Shelf Baskets if depth of storage is the goal. The leveler feet of our InterMetro Posts must be removed before adding casters to them, so it is advised that the unit be disassembled before adding casters.

Does InterMetro rust?

How would these shelves fare outdoors. I live in Los Angeles so no freezing temps and limited rain. Although there is a lot of morning condensation. I’m okay with a little rust but wasn’t sure if it would be rust everywhere.

I bought the inter metro starting unit and the 48" clothes hangar. To get as much length to hang clothes I want to only use the top and bottom shelf.

Is that ok or do I have to use more than 2 shelves? if so, can they be very close to the bottom or the top shelf so I can get the most room for hanging long clothes

An InterMetro two-shelf solution with a clothes hanger rod is certainly a viable configuration. In fact, it's one our most popular garment rack solutions.

I would like to use this shelf in my pantry but want to make sure it will work well with smaller items than are shown in the pictures.

I have done this using the shelf liners. They are clear plastic liners which will prevent things from falling through the spaces on the wire shelves. I am not sure that they are available in all sizes, however - you may want to check that.

can you adjust the shelf heights after the unit is installed or do you have to take it apart to do so?

Asked by: shelfer
You can adjust the spacing of our InterMetro Shelving solutions once they are assembled. Simply loosed the shelf to be moved by tapping up on it with a mallet, reposition the shelf sleeves accordingly and then lower the shelf back into its new position, tapping lightly on it to ensure it is well secured on its shelf sleeves.
