10 things you didn't know about Mustard Lockers
We are Mustard and we make lockers. If you're reading this now, maybe you already know this. Maybe you have a locker, or a whole collection of lockers, or you might be waiting to get your hands on one!
If you have just stumbled across us, you may think you know lockers. Except, these aren't the rusty metal kind you remember from back in school, or the grey and boring ones you might find in the gym. Our lockers bring a burst of colour and organisation to your home or workspace, they are the pretty yet practical answer to all of your storage needs.
Intrigued? Read on! Here are 10 things you might not know about our lockers.
one: they are magnetic!
You can use magnets to stick postcards, photos and to-do lists anywhere on the locker! Our super cool Wordbits are the perfect alphabet magnets for leaving funny messages on your locker and actually holding things! We also did a blog post about some of our other favourite fun and functional magnets to spruce up your lockers - you can find it here.
two: they have hooks
Inside the doors you'll find our 'handy hooks' to hang things. The Shorty, Midi and Lowdown have one on each door, and the Skinny and the Twinny have two on each door. Perfect for a little mirror, headphones, a photo frame or necklaces!
Check out this blog post on how to make your own Daisy Mirror, it is too cute! It was made for the hook inside of our lockers, is super easy to do yourself and is absolutely adorable. Let us know if you have a go at making your own!
three: they arrive flat packed
Yep! But don’t worry, we promise they are easy to put together! You can watch our how-to videos here. They also come with paper instructions and if you need any help, we are only an email away: firstname.lastname@example.org
four: they require little to no DIY skill!
You only need to a screwdriver for the two screws for the handles, that's all (fours screws if it is a double door locker!) No other tool required. Everything else slots, clicks and locks into place. Told you it was easy! Our how to videos will walk you through the build so you'll be patting yourself on the back and admiring your new favourite locker in no time.
five: they actually lock!
It's not really a locker if it doesn't lock! All of our lockers have lockable doors and come with a signature matching mustard keyring. But... if you don't want to lock your locker, that's ok too! The doors all have magnets so they'll stay closed with our without locking. Basically, it's a win win situation.
six: there's a whole rainbow to choose from!
There are now ten colours to pick from - we didn't say it would be an easy decision! Our Mustard rainbow has grown and alongside our original Blush, Mustard, Navy, Olive, Slate and White we now have Berry, Ocean, Sage and Lilac!
Can't decide? You can get your hands on colour swatches to help you pick the perfect locker for your space.
seven: they are super versatile
They can fit into that awkward small space and provide maximum storage. Both the Shorty and the Skinny are only 35cm wide by 46cm deep, but can hold a lot - we mean a lot. The Lowdown was designed to fit into an awkward alcove in Jess' house nothing else would fit just right so we made the Lowdown!
Whether you're using your locker as a TV stand, for kids clothes, for office supplies or as a kitchen pantry, you know your locker will keep everything safe inside. The adjustable shelves, colours, beautiful matte finish and wipe-down-ability (we made that word up!) make them so versatile no matter where you put them.
One of the things we love most about our lockers is that they really are good for adults or kids, girls and boys, work or play! Form and function for everyone!
eight: you can hang stuff in them!
The Skinny and the Twinny are the perfect depth for hanging clothes. Did we mention that we sell hangers? One of the nice things about using them as wardrobes is that you can adjust the shelves to fit to size of the clothes you want to hang. As your kids grow and their clothes get longer, just move the shelves down or, if you run out of room just add another next to it!
Our hangers are designed to be slim so you can really make the most of the space you have without compromising on colour co-ordinating style!
nine: they are customisable
You can change up the locker to your storage needs. Don't need the shelves? No problem, take them out! The shelves are completely adjustable or removable. Need more shelves? We can do that too! You can buy extra shelves here. The Skinny and the Twinny also come with removable hanging rails (the Skinny has one, the Twinny has two) which are also removable, perfect if you want to use them but can be taken out if you don't!
ten: they are addictive!
Once you have one, we know you'll want more! You'll find yourself looking at every corner of your home and trying to work out where you can fit another locker or two! Don't say we didn't warn you!
