Q: We're looking to invest in some Metro shelving (that commercial-looking metal shelving) for our utility room. We'd like something strong and sturdy in a chrome finish, and under $300 for a basic set of shelving. Casters would be a bonus. There are a bewildering number of options out there (Williams-Sonoma, Ikea, Container Store, Amazon, actual commercial Metro shelving and knockoffs at all sorts of other stores-- everyone seems to carry some version of wire shelving, at all sorts of price points), and you have this post, but a dedicated post would be even better!If AT readers could weigh in on what they've found to be the best value and overall experience when purchasing and assembling this type of shelving that would be very helpful to us.
