Cube storage is an excellent choice for children’s picture books, craft items, display items or other possessions that might not do well on wider shelving. The cubes can be made from various materials, but the most common are press wood or metal wire. Rattan or cloth-covered drawers can help organize items that might become disarrayed or that would look messy when simply placed on shelves. Cube storage might be a unit, but more often it is modular, making it easy to accommodate different kinds of spaces. A cube unit might be placed against a wall, be free-standing, or even have wheels.

Minimalist Cube Storage
What we like: Easy-to-match design
What we don’t like: Can’t hold heavy items
Not so great for: Rustic-style homes
Perfect for: Minimalist spaces
We love the simple and understated design of this cube storage. You can choose how many cubes you want, from five to eleven. Five color choices are available, from all-white to bright pink for a pop of color. Made from engineered wood, the price is extremely affordable. Because of this, it would be a great option if you have just moved into a new place and are trying to save money.
As the cubes are different sizes on the right and left, you can organize your items in detail. The larger slots will hold coffee table books or plants, whereas the smaller cubes are ideal for everyday small objects.
Large Cube Storage
What we like: Stackable aspect
What we don’t like: Narrower spaces won’t fit as much
Not so great for: Larger shoes
Perfect for: Storing children’s shoes/outdoor items
If you find your family’s shoes are always getting lost in the morning rush, this cube is an excellent way to solve the problem. Crafted from manufactured wood that has laminated detail for a subtle shine, the clean white finish will brighten up any hallway. It is divided into twenty-five equally sized cubes and would best suit an entryway or a living room.
We recommend it for smaller shoes, as the cubes won’t hold a whole pair of larger ones. Or, get creative and store hats, gloves, and other winter essentials in the cubby holes. That way, they’ll always be to hand for a snow day.
Small Cube Storage
What we like: Good cube depth
What we don’t like: No smaller cubbies
Not so great for: If you have a lot to store
Perfect for: A studio apartment
If you don’t have much space to spare, this slim unit is for you. Although it only has three cubes, the generous depth of each one means you’ll still have a decent amount of storage. Moreover, it can be used horizontally or vertically depending on your floor space. We recommend using it as a place to put shoes and bags near your door.
Helpfully, a tipover restraint device is included so you won’t have to worry about what your pets are up to when you’re at work. Plus, the finished back means you can use this cube as a handy room divider to help split your studio into distinct areas.
Wood Cube Storage
What we like: Raised legs create an elegant look
What we don’t like: Unfinished back
Not so great for: Ultra-modern homes
Perfect for: A farmhouse or rustic décor scheme
Featuring six units, this cube storage is charming and sophisticated. The perfect finishing touch to a farmhouse fresh décor scheme, the five color options range from antique white to vintage black. You can use it in your living room as a place for gaming consoles and controls. Alternatively, bring a touch of elegance to your hallway and double it up as a console table.
As the shelves are adjustable, you can customize them to fit what you need to store. Each shelf can hold up to 25lbs. However, the unfinished back does mean you will have to place this unit against a wall at all times. Otherwise, it could look untidy.
Metal Cube Storage
What we like: Clean-lined industrial look
What we don’t like: Open sides may cause breakages
Not so great for: If you have pets or children
Perfect for: Narrow spaces
The sleek, clean-lined design of this cube storage would look great in a contemporary home with an industrial-inspired décor scheme. Available in four colors, it has thin metal rods on each side. The five shelves are made from manufactured wood and can hold 15lbs each.
An advantage of open sides is that they will always make a space look bigger. Nevertheless, due to this openness we would not recommend this unit if you have pets or lively children. This is because lighter items could easily tip over even when someone is running past. Of course, you could just store sturdier items like books to prevent this from happening.
