If you are in the market for a storage cabinet, it is a good idea to figure out where you will place it. Once this is determined, you should measure the area that can be dedicated to it. This way, you can get a cabinet of the perfect width, giving you the most amount of storage possible for the space available. You should also figure out if you will need the shelves to be adjustable in terms of height. Not all models offer this option.

Obviously, how much storage you need depends on how much stuff you have. If your craft has become more than a hobby and has turned into a passion or a way to earn a living, you may be in a situation where you have a lot of craft supplies, and not enough room to store them neatly. There are cabinets that open up and unfold to not only provide a lot of storage drawers, shelves and pouches, but also to make a working area, complete with craft table.

If you’re trying to make your home office look a little less “office grey”, consider buying office furniture in different colors. For example, a steel-grey looking file cabinet can be swapped out for a black office storage cabinet that is not only as functional, but just plain cooler looking. Also, since the storage cabinet is black, you can use it in other rooms as well without it looking too out of place.

When you’re challenged by a small living space, you need to look at items that can perform double or even triple duty. As an example, there are square coffee tables that can also double as additional storage by simply removing the top of the table to use the space within. And then there are coffee tables that come complete with removable storage cubes that can also be used as seats. That is an efficient use of space!

No matter how big or small your living space is, additional storage is always welcome. However, if you do live in a small space, adding furniture like a chaise lounge with storage compartment can be a great way to keep your environment clutter-free while enjoying a lazy afternoon or evening relaxing in style and comfort. Great for storing magazines, books, multimedia remotes and whatever else you can fit in it.
