5 Storage Solutions That Are Actually Attractive
In spaces large and small, storage opportunities are always a concern. Luckily, you don’t need tons of closet space to hide your less-than-attractive necessities. The below items are perfect for storing your items, but they’re still aesthetically pleasing enough to be front and center in your home.
We love the ample hidden storage opportunities that an armoire provides, but these classic furniture pieces are also excellent overall additions to your décor. Armoires with carved doors or ones with inset panels add texture to a space, while their size can help add height to a room that needs some additional visual heft.
We love the worldly appeal that vintage luggage and luggage-inspired furniture bring to a design. Great for textural interest and a wonderful conversation piece, trunks are also perfect for storing items you want to keep within reach but don’t want to see. Use a trunk as a coffee table alternative or stack several suitcases to use as a side table or nightstand.

Save space in your kitchen cabinets and cupboards by transferring dry ingredients like flour, sugar, oats, and cereal into simple glass containers to showcase on open shelves or your countertop. Not only will this add an interesting element to your kitchen décor, but will free up the closed storage space in your cabinets for more unsightly items.
While baskets are a great solution for storing more attractive items, for pieces you don’t want to be seen, utilize lidded boxes as a closed-storage solution. Great on shelves in an office or living room, if they are large enough, boxes can also be tucked under a console or center table to add texture and interest while simultaneously housing your items.
