If you are in the process of decorating the interior of your home, you might be looking for the best way to display your favorite items. If you are planning to buy new furniture, you have a lot of options. However, if you are looking for something unique, you should consider buying wooden crates. 


Regardless of the house theme, wooden crates can be incorporated into different looks. It is a great way to incorporate some timeless pieces and create something new out of wooden crates. The process of getting creative can be very enjoyable as long as you have ideas.


In this blog post, we will explore the different ideas on how to use ColorWood Latvia crates in the interior to create amazing pieces.


Coffee Table from Wooden Crates

Wooden crates can be used to make a unique coffee table. Stack two or three of the same sized crates and top it off with a piece of glass or wood. This is a great way to make a statement piece for your living room.


The good thing about wood is that it can easily be painted. If you have some leftover wooden crates that can be used for something, simply paint them to match your interior. Then build a wooden table of your choice – the easiest way would be to stack together some wooden crates and call it a day.


It is a perfect way to freshen up your garden setup and create some wooden furniture from a few crates.


Planters for Your Plants

Wooden crates make great planters. Just drill some holes in the bottom and fill with soil. You can then add your favorite plants and flowers. This is a great way to add some greenery to your home colors or patterns and hang them up. 


You can also order some custom wooden crates with personalized engravings or printed text. As seen in the first photo on the left, you can have a name of your plant or anything else that you’re growing in crates. This is a great way to add some personality to your garden crates.


Some rustic wooden crates can really put the whole garden together – with some vintage looking boxes.


Wooden Crate Shelves

Another fun way on how to use wooden crates in the interior is to create shelves. All you realistically have to do is get some wooden crates of your choice. Then simply attach them to the wall. 


Crates themselves will be quite sturdy, since wood can handle a bigger weight. Make sure that the attachment system is safe so you can place heavier items on your shelves too – plants, books, candles etc.


You can even go as far as creating a whole shelving system or unit. As seen in the photo on the right, you can stack many wooden crates together and figure out a way to imply more storage space while not losing aesthetics. This is a great way to add storage to any room without taking up too much space.


A Product Display in Shops and Cafes

If you are a business owner and are looking to spice up your store’s or cafe’s interior without breaking the bank, wooden crates could be an option for you too. Wooden crates can be formed into product display stands or storage space for the back of your business.


Since we already established the fact that wooden crates can fit into any interior just fine, these display stands can be perfect for your store or cafe too. Color Wood Latvia creates all kinds of wooden products, including wooden product stands from crates and not only.


Choosing product display stands from wood is a good choice since wood is timeless and considerably easy to sustain. It is eco-friendly and can also hold quite a heavy weight of products which is handy for storing items such as books, bottles of drinks etc.


Extra Storage Space

Wooden crates are perfect for storage. They can be used to store books, toys, and other items. That way you can organize your space to your needs – each crate for something specific. And since we are talking about including these wooden crates into your interior, they have to be pleasing to the eye as well.


So instead of the basic wooden crates choose ones that look more elegant and beautiful. It is indeed possible because wooden crates are so universally used these days. You will be able to find rustic wooden crates, ones with attached wheels, ropes as holders and so on.


The first wooden crate in the photo on the left is a perfect example of a wooden crate as storage space. It is placed next to the couch in the living room and therefore can hold some extra blankets.


A Unique Pet Bed

And lastly let’s not forget about our beloved pets who take up space in our interior too. There are so many different kinds of pet beds available, yet if you want to create something relevantly simple and unique, a wooden crate or two can do wonders.


You can pick the easiest option and just take one wooden crate that you already have at home. Paint it so that it fits the interior of the room it will go in. After that is done, put something comfy and fluffy and it and call it a day. Your dog will love it!


As for cats, they usually love sleeping in higher places where they can see their surroundings. An easy and fun idea is to place their bed crate on the wall – attach it higher than ground level so the cat can access it through jumping. It will be fun both for your pet and your interior. If you are willing to get more creative, an option in the photo on the right is always an option too.
