Howards Shelving Systems

Firstly, you can’t underestimate the importance of utilising vertical wall space. Therefore, to achieve that, a good quality shelving system is key. For instance, our buyers have scoured the globe and stand firm is their recommendation that you simply can’t beat Elfa® and Easy Build.


Firstly, there are so many reasons to love Elfa. For example, it’s customisable and flexible enough to be used within any room of the house. Furthermore, it’s durable, engineered to last the distance and has a 10 year guarantee. Finally, it’s Swedish designed and made and it’s just so easy to install and use. For instance, the Elfa system simply attaches to the wall with a single top track from which the other components hang. Moreover, everyone’s needs are different and if you want a system that can evolve with you, a flexible and versatile solution is essential. With Elfa, today’s laundry can be reconfigured to tomorrow’s nursery or office.

Rental Property Laundry Makeover

Here at Howards we love a makeover! Firstly, the joy is in seeing how a few of our simple solutions can completely transform a space. As a result, improve the day-to-day functionality of a home. Therefore, some time ago we teamed up with My Mummy Daze blogger to overhaul her laundry. However, we we’re challenged by the position of the laundry. The fact that she needed a makeover within a rental property and no existing workflow. Hence, the Howards team got to work!

This makeover used an Elfa shelving system, along with Laundry Accessories to create this neat & tidy space.
