Crate expectations: taster ideas to suit any pallet

Upcycling remains as popular a design technique as ever, and one of the staple factory excesses that can be incorporated into design is the humble shipping crate.

From beds, to seating, tables to shoeracks, the flexibility and natural character of the wooden pallets offers refreshing alternatives to a whole host of different interior features.

We sifted through Pinterest to find our own favourites. Here's how these pallets are transforming living and working spaces...


These varnished crates combined with the leafy decor of this apartment bring the outdoors in

Stained columns across this piece give the space a truly rustic, rural feel

This washed-out trio of pallets tie this living room together, matching with the rug & sidetable 

Combining white-painted pallets with these varnished oak surfaces slats makes this table unique

A different take on the table idea shows how the gaps between the pallets can be fully utilised

Another crate-frame that makes the bed itself a stand-out feature in this serene room

By disbanding the initial pallets, the wood can be rebuilt into storage boxes - or plant pots
