One of the things I never seem to have enough of is storage space. It’s been a pain point in the past, and so, when we were house hunting a little over a year ago, it was certainly on my short-list of considerations. How much closet space is there? Is there room for a storage bench for shoes? Can that wall turn into a spot for built-ins??

Interestingly, even as our home size has steadily increased from an apartment to a four-bedroom home with a basement, my need for storage has increased right along with it. Regardless of whatever size home you’re in, as designer Emily Henderson once said, “There’s no such thing as too much storage.”

Since I’m continually on the hunt for storage solutions, I’ve decided to round up some of my favorite storage pieces: closed-door cabinets. If you need an accessible place that’s aesthetically pleasing to store all the things, this is THE storage piece that you can use in just about any room.

Kids toys, extra bedding, crafts, cleaning supplies—shove it in the cabinet, shut the doors, and voila—an instantly clean and tidy room. 😉

I personally love the look of a wood finished cabinet and you can often find cabinets like this on Facebook or Craigslist (especially older, vintage ones that could be painted or refinished) but if this type of cabinet isn’t your thing or you just don’t want to scour Facebook Marketplace endlessly, I’ve got you covered.

Below are a mix of styles that will function beautifully for storage, whatever your preference may be!

  1. East Bluff Woven Black Cabinet $450
  2. Tall 2 Cabinet $289
  3. Warwick Library Cabinet $350
  4. Grimsby Solid Wood Cabinet $449 (unfinished, this cabinet would look great stained or painted)
  5. Brandeis Woven Cabinet $500
  6. Astoria Armoire $1,499
  7. Ulen White Wood Kitchen Storage Cabinet $499
