Whether you’ve got boxes of unshelved books, a cluttered cave of a closet or a beloved collection of antique globes to show off, cube storage can take your home to the next level. Here are a few tips for getting organized in style.
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.
Who says cube storage has to be flush against a wall? In open rooms, like studio apartments or loft-style living and dining areas, modular units can establish separation of space and make a home feel cozier.
