A friend of mine bought some 3” polyisocyanurate (I think that’s spelled wrong) ... rigid foam insulation NOT the styrofoam type. He stuck it to the wall with adhesive…. and not a lot of it… then built his shelves and stuff in front of it. The shelves sit on the floor and are secured at the ceiling so they aren’t “tippy”. In one area he has a bench with upper cabinets. He built it as a unit and slid it against the wall. It has a 3’4” plywood back. Cabinets secured to that and then once it was in place he also screwed those to a stringer on the ceiling. If you’re creative, you don’t necessarily HAVE to bolt stuff to concrete. :)
