One of our favorite things to do is share creative ways to use lockers. Contrary to what you might think, they aren’t only for schools or gym locker rooms. That’s part of what makes lockers such a fabulous storage solution! They are extremely versatile and come in so many different styles and configurations that you can use them in practically any room in your home!

At SchoolLockers.com, we love to hear about our lockers being used for important reasons–but sometimes the true value of storage escapes us because we don’t always hear about the meaningful service they provide. One of our most valued projects involved finding lockers for a local, non-profit Christian organization called Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). This amazing organization partners with another organization called Kids Feeding Kids, and their joint efforts have provided as many as 161,737,104 meals to 50 countries worldwide…can you say kudos?! Not only does FMSC provide numerous meals to impoverished communities, they’ve also helped implement a variety of sustainability programs to provide resources for clean water, agriculture, health care, education, spiritual development and more.

“How much does a locker cost?” We get asked that question pretty much every single day. And the answer? It depends. Our selection is large and varied, full of different sizes, styles and types of lockers. The material a locker is made out of–typically metal, plastic or wood–affects the price (check out our blog post about the differences in these types of materials to find out more). If you’re looking for a bank of lockers (3-wide instead of just one individual locker, for example), that factors into the cost. We also offer custom options and accessories that cause the price to fluctuate.
Taking all of that into consideration, we truly do have lockers to fit every budget. You can spend anywhere from $10.95 (for our Tiny Steel Lockers) to upwards of $2,500 for some of our heavy duty and stainless steel lockers. Here’s a breakdown of some of our more popular styles of lockers in price points on the lower end of most people’s budgets. 😉
When it comes to lockers, metal lockers are definitely the most popular type on the market. They’re durable, economical, secure and work in basically any setting you can think of–gyms, locker rooms, offices, schools, warehouses and even at home in pretty much any room you need extra storage in!
