    There’s no doubt that adding a few unusual pieces to your kitchen is an easy way of personalising it.

    So when I saw these former luggage racks from decommissioned 1960s Metropolitan line tube trains that have been made into shelves by the London Transport Museum, I had to share them with you.

    The racks have been cleaned and customised so you can have a little bit of London history in your kitchen. Plus, as they’re made from light but strong aluminium, and used to carrying heavy briefcases, bags and suitcases, they’re perfect for storing pans, jars and bottles.

    The shelves will be available from the beginning of February on the London Transport Museum website.

    Prices start at £150 for the small rack measuring 45 x 26 x 32cm and £250 for the largest measuring 101 x 23.5 x 33.5cm.
