    27 Storage Options That Aren't Completely Hideous

    Staying organized doesn't have to mean replacing all your fun furniture with gray plastic cubes.

    1. A murphy desk for anyone with a huge amount of work to do and a teeny tiny amount of space to do it in. When you're done toiling, simply close the desk to keep all of your papers out of sight and out of mind.

    2. A set of macrame baskets that are so cute your blankets are going to be fighting for a coveted space in them. But don't worry, the set comes with three, so there's room for everyone!

    3. A wall-mounted grocery bag dispenser to give your typical plastic tornado an orderly system and turns "Ugh, messy," into "Ooo, shiny."

    4. A magnetic organization rack so you can clear off your kitchen counters and give your MVP cooking utensils a place of honor. Surprise! Your fridge has been a storage solution this whole time.

    5. A foldable double hamper because the mesh bag you've been using since high school is probably ready to retire. Plus, it has removable liners you can detach and take your sorted clothes right to the laundry room.

    6. A leaning ladder that's a definite ~step up~ from keeping your stray clothes and accessories on the ground.

    7. A modern, round end table with a storage basket to finally get all of your odds and ends off of the coffee table. Now you can tuck your precious books in with your blankets and let them rest.

    8. A set of three collapsable bins for any of your belongings that just don't have a home yet. When you're done using them — *BAM* — they collapse, basically storing themselves. So meta.

    9. A bed outfitted with a hydraulic system that easily lifts up to reveal an oasis of hidden storage space. Perfect for off-season clothes, linens, and ~valuables~, it has enough storage area to basically be considered a second closet.

    10. A carousel makeup organizer because your cosmetics — your babies! — should be the crown jewel of your bathroom counter. Just spin this caddy and admire the goods for hours. It'll never get old.

    11. A wood and acrylic record holder that's a huge upgrade from the cardboard box you've been lugging your vinyl around in all these years.

    12. An entryway storage station with a bench, hooks, and — most adorably — individual shoe cubbies to keep your threshold nice and tidy.

    13. A set of floating shelves that turns books (the most beautiful things of all!) into storage units in and of themselves.

    14. A nursery organizer and diaper caddy so you always know exactly where your baby essentials are. You've done the "hold a crying baby in one arm and rifle through the room for wipes with the other" thing before, and there's definitely a better way.

    15. A hanging cocktail bar if you want your apartment to be party central, but only on occasion. Now even the smallest studios can have a full bar without it taking up 100% of the kitchen.

    16. A fabric over-the-door pocket organizer that works hard to make the most of *all* the available space in your home and looks good as hell doing it.

    17. A modular wine rack for a modern twist on storing all of your vintage bottles.

    18. A coat tree with shelves to give you more unique storage opportunities than a traditional coat rack. Outerwear, hats, books, baskets, other eccentricities — all are welcome here!

    19. A sturdy, stylish wooden chest that automatically makes anything you put inside it Certified Treasure.

    20. A modern umbrella holder so you don't put a ~damper~ on all the time you spent on your interior design.

    21. A slim bathroom cabinet with a ton of nooks and crannies to keep cleaning supplies, spare toilet paper, tampons — ya know, bathroom stuff — away from the chaos of under the sink.

    22. A set of ceramic succulent containers for your dresser top because this should be the year you finally know where more than one bobby pin or hair tie is at a time.

    23. A spice rack drawer organizer to keep those zesty boys in line. Never again will you have to rummage through your cabinet blindly for cumin!

    24. A tufted ottoman for hiding clutter and creating more storage space. It also makes for a great bed if you're Michael Scott.

    25. An adorable elephant laundry hamper that might actually get your child to straighten up their room. Who wouldn't want to spend as much time as possible with this little guy?

    26. A four-drawer ombré storage unit to add a cheeriness to your desk that a basic wire organizer could only dream of.

    27. And a handsome wood closet system because we're not all blessed with a spacious closet. This will allow you to finally give your clothes a space of their own and show off some of our cutest pieces.

    All of your belongings, safely tucked away where they belong:
