Storage units are brilliant space-savers, but they still have a footprint. Take measurements before shopping to find the organizer that best fits your space. Flexible modular units are great long-term, because they can be reconfigured as storage needs change.

Storage cubes typically come in neutral colors, but don’t be afraid to go a little more bold. Many units are available in a variety of colors and wood finishes. If you’re into DIY, interior decorators suggest adding removable wallpaper to cube shelving units for a temporary tweak or spray painting plastic and metal units for a more permanent upgrade.
