Cabinets chests help with decluttering, a common theme for just about anyone who has a space they can call their own. Homes seem to have a habit of acquiring “stuff”. Some of it is useful, some of it is commemorative, and some of it is uncategorized items that could be one or the other or both, but all of which need a home. Cabinets and chests that are attractive do double duty by both protecting and storing all your important things, and even some of your not so important things by providing an attractive and functional space for your home.
What we like: Half-open, half-closed storage
What we don’t like: No smaller drawers or shelves
Not so great for: If you want to hide everything away
Perfect for: Cottage/farmhouse décor schemes
We love the laidback vibe of this cabinet. Distinctly rustic, it is available in six different color options, including dark walnut and brushed white. The top surface will support up to 100lbs, whereas the two shelves within can support up to 30lbs. Usefully, the shelves are adjustable so you can fit what you need inside.
Made of high-grade MDF and laminate with some metal detail, it has been subtly distressed for a more authentic rural look. We think it would look great in an entryway due to its smaller size. The half-open, half-closed storage solution means you can store items in the closed side, and decorate the other.
Vintage Inspired Chest
What we like: Heaps of storage
What we don’t like: Can’t store larger items
Not so great for: Modern homes
Perfect for: Country-style homes
Beautiful and unique, this chest has stacks of vintage appeal. Guaranteed to catch the eye of guests, it is made from solid and manufactured wood. It can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth to remove any dust or marks. The gorgeous antique finish will brighten up any room. Plus, the whitewashed effect gives it even more French country appeal. It features recessed paneling and carved ogee bracket feet for a distinctly rural look.
The best feature of this stunning chest is the amount of storage it offers. Not just for decoration, it features fifteen differently-sized drawers. We recommend using the top drawers for keys or pens, and the bigger ones below for blankets.
Solid Wood Cabinet
What we like: Made fully from solid wood
What we don’t like: Drawers don’t pull out all the way
Not so great for: Traditional homes
Perfect for: Adding retro flair to a space
This four-drawer cabinet is a great way to integrate the retro trend into your home without it looking out of place. You can choose from five colors, ranging from white to deep black. It takes inspiration from mid-century modern designs but with a modern twist.
Moreover, the clean-lined silhouette and tapered, flared legs make it a good choice for a minimalist home. Another brilliant feature of this cabinet is the pull-out panel, which allows you to rest your phone whilst it's charging. All drawers are felt-lined to cushion your clothes, whereas ball-bearing glides will prevent rusting.
Floral Pattern Chest
Laurel Foundry Modern Farmhouse®
What we like: Intricate floral detail
What we don’t like: Only one shelf within
Not so great for: If you have a lot to store
Perfect for: A vintage-inspired living room
Made from a mixture of MDF and solid wood, this chest is full of character and charm. The reclaimed wood finish is available in cream or a natural wood/cream mixture. Featuring one shelf within, we think it would best suit a living room. You can use it to store any consoles or DVDs that don’t fit in with your décor whilst creating a cozy cottage look.
The raised molding and exquisite floral scrollwork on this chest will bring texture and definition to the space around it. In addition, the neutral color scheme will blend seamlessly with many existing décor schemes, from muted to bright wallpaper designs.
Unique Multicolor Cabinet
What we like: Unusual design
What we don’t like: Not as easy to match with décor
Not so great for: Understated spaces
Perfect for: Smaller rooms/hallways
Featuring soft close drawers, this cabinet is crafted completely from solid wood. The birch wood veneer and beautiful antique walnut color give it a subtle sheen. Sure to stand out, the unique nature of this cabinet comes from its five drawers. Each one is a different size and color, ranging from red and green to humbug stripes. Plus, the turned feet and Queen Anne-style skirt make it a truly unusual piece that will impress visitors.
Because this cabinet is narrower, measuring just over thirty inches in width, we recommend it for a small living room. Or, place it in a cramped corridor to create a much-needed storage space with heaps of character.
