After a year of accumulating clutter, a new year often brings the need for organization and storage. With this in mind, I've pulled together a range of different storage options suitable for different rooms with an array of storage needs. My favorites have to be the colorful shoe storage unit and the mango wood bookcase from West Elm. Which pieces do you like best? Do you have any top storage tips? — Will from Bright.Bazaar
This is a clever storage system because it's designed to meet your individual needs. You can pick and choose from the different box sizes and shelving elements as per your storage requirements.
Purple and yellow always look fantastic when paired together. This color palette and the curved lines of the piece make it ideal storage for a nursery or playroom.
There's something comforting and cozy about a room with a linen cabinet. The Hemnes design at Ikea is one of my favorites.
I like the use of mango wood against the white-painted metal of this bookcase. The wheels are nice industrial touch too.
It would be hard to cover this stylish industrial-style coffee table in books, but there's always the lower shelf.
This side unit is a great investment piece for smaller spaces because it doubles as a desk and a storage piece.
I'm not sure I've ever seen a shoe storage solution as playful and cheerful as this one. You can even arrange the colorful pegs as per your taste and then use them as coat hooks. Double the storage in one unit? Perfect.
This mint-colored filing cabinet proves that office furniture doesn't have to be boring.
A leaning ladder-style bookcase is a great way to bring more storage to a space while maintaining a feeling of openness. This solution works really well if you're looking to store pieces you wish to see like vases and mementos, rather than paperwork, etc.
Color has always been my vice, so I almost felt weak at the knees upon seeing this green and black color combination. I love the surprise of the deep, moody black interior against the vibrant gloss of the lime green exterior.
I like the midcentury modern–inspired design of this bedside table. The crimson lacquer finish on the ash wood brings a beautiful sleekness to the piece.
Not looking for a big storage investment? These willow baskets are perfect for storing odds and ends and transitional items.
I like the French country feel to this dresser. The wooden storage baskets give it a relaxed, provincial feel.
I like the pretty blossom detailing that adorns the doors of this raised cabinet. This design will help keep a feeling of space in a room, as the eye can see underneath big pieces of furniture.
The black walnut in this sideboard brings a great richness and depth to the piece. Each one is handcrafted in Portland.
Low pieces are a great way to bring storage into transitional spaces like hallways and landings. I like the wave effect of this design.
I think these metal storage trunks are a super fun way to bring storage into a space. Placing a lamp on top of them almost makes them feel like statement pieces.
Made from found driftwood, this little cabinet is ideal for a coastal or eclectic scheme. I'm in love with the texture it brings.
It was the asymmetrical doors on this piece that caught my eye.
