Songmics Storage Shelf Unit Review and Giveaway.


Hands up if your house is cluttered? Mine is fore sure. I have quite a big house but then still never manage to get it looking neat and tidy. There is only my daughter and I living there and somehow I have still managed to fill it.

I have always looked at neat and tidy house and thought, that is exactly what I want to have. I know that my home will never be perfect. With a 4 year old and 2 cats, there is no chance. But I definetly want my house looking a little tidier.

This is where Songmics can help me out.

They specialise in storage and have many handy items on their website that are perfect in aiding your house to become a lot more neat and tidy.

I got in touch with them to see if they would like me to write about their storage solutions and they offered to send me a storage shelf unit.

With 4 shelfs on the unit I thought this was going to be perfect for getting things up of my floor and stored somewhere near. 

The unit comes all dismantled in a box but it is super easy to put together and took me no time at all. There are instructions but it is pretty self explanatory and it all simply clips together. 


I decided that the perfect place for my shelf unit was my spare room. It is a room that always ends up cluttered. I use it as a storage room and so things just get put in there and put on the floor. Which ends up talking up all your space and sometime I have even struggled to walk in there.

The unit is measured at 46cm width, 34cm depth, and is a height of 147cm tall. I found this a perfect fit for my spare room and it looked great. It didn't take up much space while providing a great amount of storage space.

I got this in a lovely grey colour but a black one is also available.


the next job was to fill it. At first I didn't think that it felt to sturdy. It weighs next to nothing and I even managed to build it downstairs and carry it upstairs myself. As you can see from the photo, the shelves are made from poles and material. I thought to myself that it possibly wouldn't hold much weight at all.

But to my surprise it did. I managed to put books on there and some storage baskets and boxes which were filled with things and it held the weight really well.

I think when the shelf is filled it looks really nice, and if this if for storage in your living room or bedroom you could always place matching baskets on each shelf to make it look even nicer.


I could of used this for so many things in my house. It could have been perfect for Lily's bedroom to place all her soft toys on. It could have been perfect for her playroom to put her smaller toy boxes on. Or I could of used it downstairs to place my shoes on as it would make a perfect shoe rack.

For the price of £19.99 it really is worth paying for the storage problems you could solve.

You can buy yourself one of these from the Songmics store over on amazon.

If you love this storage shelf then your in luck. I have one to giveaway! For your chance to win enter on the gleam app below.
