Three Ways to Enhance Display with Crates
Try using these three simple display ideas to get the most from your display crates.
1. Use to display fresh produce
Using wooden crates to display your products shouts "fresh", "organic", "local". Pile fruit and vegetables inside wooden crates to give the impression they've come straight from the farm. Our crates are also ideal for displaying jars and bottles.
2. Flip and use as display risers
Displays can be overcrowded, especially if everything's all on one level. Simply flip our crates over and you have a wooden riser. Utilise this added height to create a multi-level display. The result - an eye-catching platform for your products.
3. Elevate table service
Use our small and medium wooden boxes and crates to house condiments, cutlery, and everything in between. Combine with natural tableware to enhance the presentation of food and provide an authentic feel.
Wooden Crates & Boxes
Our wooden display crates are solidly constructed from good quality timber. Crates are available in different sizes, styles and finishes to offer exactly the look you need. Our burnt finish crates are particularly popular with retailers looking to create a heritage feel for their business. If you're looking for something more contemporary, our metal buckets make ideal retail props in combination with the natural wood effect.
There are also wooden trays and trugs to provide a variety of display opportunities. Display crates are an easy and inexpensive way to improve the appearance of existing shelves and displays and are complemented perfectly by our range of wicker display baskets and other point of sale products.
We've designed our CrateWall system to help retailers who are looking to create a retail display from larger wooden crate. It's a completely modular display system that you can easily put together yourself, made from high quality materials and at a fraction of the normal price.
If you want to turn a drab display into something rustic and eye-catching, our rolls of natural hessian help you create an attractive backdrop for tables, shelves or display boxes. We even sell the chalk for you to write out your signs.
