  • FAQ Spotlight: Displaying and Anchoring to the Wall

    Can I display my Way Basics furniture on the wall?

    Yes, of course you are able to display your Way Basics products on the wall with the support of L brackets or other support hardware beneath your furniture. Make sure to support your Way Basics furniture from the bottom, as these products draw their strength from their vertical construction. The zBoard can be used like other wood products by drilling on its main surfaces, but drilling on the edges is not recommended. Hey, I just came up with a new design idea!

    Many of our customers purchase multiple cubes and piece them together to create a storage solution. We thought we could make it even easy for you and created the Quad Cube. This unit is a single piece with 4 cubicles the same size as our regular cube. Rather than a backing board, we have created a modern checkered looks with a zBoard back board. Great for children's rooms and simple home organization. You can even put it in your closet and or dorm room to store your clothes. Got toys, socks, or anything you want to store but want to hide? Get the storage bins from JJ Cole to fit perfectly into each cubicle.

  • Why choose Way Basics?

    Brand and products are abundant in our consumer driven world. Sometimes there's almost too many choices when we shop. Should I buy the one with bamboo accents or stainless steel? Made in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia, or here at home in USA? Mass market low quality and low price or eco friendly high quality but a slight premium? Our choices are personal and reflect who we are as individuals. Perhaps in these economic times it's a purely financial decision purchasing what we can afford. Other times it could be an emotional connection we have with a brand, color, the design, etc.

    We thought we would ask our customers why they chose Way Basics when there are so many other alternatives out there. What we found out was very heart warming because it's why we started the company and makes us so excited that so many people have embraced our brand and vision. Here are the results from a recent survey...

    Customers enjoy Way Basics for our commitment to sustainability, modern design and making products simple to interact with.

  • zBoard: What's the difference?


    We often get asked what differentiates the zBoard from the particle board, MDF, plywood, and solid wood? Is it cardboard? Is it made from wood?

    zBoards, are created through a patented, proprietary process that's revolutionized paperboard manufacturing. Developing this process took more than 10 years, and it combines techniques of plywood craftsmanship, paperboard composition, and furniture manufacturing. It leads to extremely sturdy yet lightweight boards that hold up to plenty of use. Because we use recycled paper, no no trees were chopped down to producing zBoards. Since recycled paper is used, the process also uses  a lot less water than what is used to make virgin paper. Our purpose is to eliminate as much environmental impact as possible and offer a sustainable product. When you're done with your Way Basics furniture (after its long lifetime), you can recycle it again by simply putting it in your recycling bin.

    Is it strong, will it hold? Yes! zBoards are just as strong as other wood engineered boards like particle board or MDF. Watch this video to see zBoards in action.

    zBoards are made on the beautiful island of Taiwan. Taiwan inherited advanced Japanese paper engineering and manufacturing processes enabling 74% of total paper production to come from recycled paper. Taiwan is also very eco conscious recycling 60% of paper used, compared to 50% here in the United States.

Really nice how they chose Way Basics'z zBoard to display their products instead of using particle board or MDF made product. Great job Bamboo Studio!

  • Customer Care: Feedback Welcomed


    When Way Basics started over 3 years ago, we set out to assure customer service was our top priority. Sounds cliche doesn't it? What does customer service mean? We looked up 'customer service' at and found this:

    "assistance and other resources that a company provides

    to the people who buy or use its products or services"

    Seems so mechanical and impersonal. We've all interacted with customer service in our lives either through a brick and mortar or online retailer. More often than not, the experience with customer service is remarkable in the negative sense. Sometimes it even ruins our day doesn't it? We've all been there.

    We believe in doing the right thing and from the start we set in stone that customer care would be part of our core values. Rather than just servicing our customer, we care about you. We make sure your email, phone call, feedback, product issues, you name it, we attentively service you in the way each person deserves.

    With new technologies evolving the way we interact, the team at Way Basics is wondering how our customers prefer to be cared for. Would you like a phone number to call and speak to someone? How about using Twitter and Tweeting a comment or posting your love, question, or issue on our Facebook Wall? Does it matter which communication medium is used as long as you are attended to in a caring way? How important is response time?

    Our team is always looking for ways to make our lives simpler, products better, and customer care more loving. We would love to hear from you. Use any one of our ways to connect and share with us:
