    Your cat deserves the very best: fun cat furniture that’s environmentally friendly as well, so kitty is safe. And you deserve stylish furniture to liven up your home! Well, Way Basics has some new cat products that could be just purrfect for you and your cat or kitten.

    Check them all out here. Here’s the lowdown on three of our many new cat products:

    The Pet Steppers: Coming in two-step and three-step versions, these mini-staircases are fantastic, safe and easy ways for cats and dogs to get around.

And for their loving owner, it’s attractive and modern, fitting well into any house.

  • Practical Style and Storage with Textured Wall Shelves

    Are you looking for a stylishly simple way to organize your home? Maybe you want extra storage space without buying a bookshelf that dominates the space and takes over your decor. Way Basics has you covered with our selection of textured wall shelves.  Available in two options, the Antigua and the Grenada, the shelves will help keep your home neat and organized while displaying your decor in a trendy way.

    Both the Antigua and the Grenada come in four finishes to complement any color palette; White Ash, Black Ash, Oak and Dark Teak. The key difference is the length of the shelves themselves, the Antigua is 24" while the Grenada is 30". Each provide a simple solution to your every day storage needs. The shelves look great in any room too, offering practical options wherever you need them, simply install them to any vertical surface. It's that easy!

    Why zBoard is a better alternative

    Way Basics also prides itself on providing safe options for you and your family with our revolutionary zBoard. Made from recycled paperboard, zBoard is non-toxic and free of both VOC and formaldehyde. That means you can use it anywhere - a child's room or a nursery - without worry!

    Our Grenada and Antigua Textured Wall Shelf are the perfect lengths, in either 24" or 30", giving you ample room to display knick knacks, pictures or other mementos. They can even hold up to 20 pounds safely!


    • All hardware included (wall bracket, anchors, screws & shelf)
    • Easy to mount to any wall or vertical surface
    • Environmentally friendly & safe for your family (non-toxic)
    • Realistic wood look and texture
  • Monitor stand video review [placeholder title]

    Recently, we received a lovely video review from a happy customer. Amber Pierce reviews our Computer Monitor Stand in this short video:

    Amber appreciates how the Way Basics Monitor Stand's height improves her posture and reduces neck strain. She also says, "I can't tell you how nifty and handy it is to be able to put your keyboard underneath the desktop monitor," showing how easily her keyboard slides underneath the stand. A computer mouse, papers, and more can also be stored underneath. This is a great way to save space when you need to use your desk for something else, such as writing with pen and paper.

    On the product page for the black Monitor Stand (it also comes in pearl white and espresso), you can see more pictures of the stand in action, sent in by customers like you and Amber. The stand features enough space for small knickknacks, speakers and office supplies in addition to your computer monitor. If you don't need space for a monitor, the stand provides extra room for documents, day planners and more. Simplicity and versatility is the Way Basics way.

    Amber also mentions how eco-friendly our products are, and our lifetime warranty. Indeed, all our products are free of VOC and formaldehyde and made from 99% post-consumer recycled paper (which is incredibly strong, by the way--the Monitor Stand alone can hold up to 30 pounds!). And our warranty guarantees lifetime happiness, with personal support offered from our CEO, who can be reached at Check out our comprehensive warranty here.

    Thanks, Amber, for a wonderful review!

  • Introducing zTube Open Bookcases and Shelving


    zBoard was born in 2008 with the innovative technology for a non toxic storage shelving solution. It is simple and made from a material we use in our daily lives... paper! Isn't it incredible that recycled paper can be created into a super strong paperboard used to build modular bookcases, wall shelves, monitor stands, benches and more? The possibilities are endless with paper, and the Way Basics creative team is super excited to announce another addition... introducing the zTube!

    Rather than panels as the sides of a shelf, this collection uses tubes to create a robust frame for an airy open style shelving. This model and timeless design allows for versatile organizing and displaying ideas. Multiple units can align together to create a room divider, media center, shoe rack, closet shelving.... what are your ideas? We can't wait to see your creation!

    Assembling the zTube collection is still just as easy, tool free and hardware free! Like all Way Basics products, our materials are non toxic, formaldehyde free, and VOC free to create a healthy space whether it be in your home or work space. Enjoy building possibilities with Way Basics!

  • Elizabeth Pyo at Being MVP blog loving Way Basics!

    We partnered with Elizabeth for a honest review for the Arlington Modular Organizer so she can organize her children’s play room. Take a look at her review at her site Being MVP. The Arlington helped her unclutter her children toys and be more organized. She found Way Basics very easy to put together because its tools free Elizabeth is enjoying her modern and chic organizer, the way she likes it as you can see here. Her children’s room is now eco-friendly as Way Basics products are sustainably made from non-toxic, VOC and formaldehyde free zBoards.

    how to organize the playroom

    She enjoyed Way Basics so much a few weeks later she reached out to review the Salinas tower to organize her shoes. How could we say no? The Salinas tower helped her neatly organize shoes for easy access so you can easily choose what to wear and also with the different shelf sizes, she is able to organize different shoe styles be it sandals or even boots. Read more about Elizabeth’s experience here at her blog being MVP.

    The Salinas shoe tower is now discontinued, yet here are some awesome alternatives for shoe organizing:

  • We rise by lifting others

    The happiest people are the ones who make others happy and here at Way Basics that’s what we do for our customers, each other, and everyone. We donated several Quad Cubes to Long Beach Elementary School to help students stay organized and to provide each student with a compartment for their school things. We love how creative the students were with the zBoards, mixing and matching the colors to build an even more colorful Quad Cube Don’t you agree?

    The thing about giving is you don’t expect anything in return. When you receive these sweet thank you notes in the mail box from the students it just makes our hearts smile to see their enthusiasm. We are so glad to be part of this and that we had a part in the student’s daily lives and helping them be more organized. Building possibilities together in the classroom!
