There's a huge choice of fantastic coffee pod storage units to choose from. Struggling to find one to suit your home? Here's a rundown of the most common styles to help you match your coffee pod storage unit to your kitchen decor:

Classic Under Brewer Drawer

Compact, yet with space for up to around 24-36 pods, your classic under brewer coffee pod drawer saves space and keeps your kitchen counter uncluttered. Smaller designs hold less but protrude less from under your brewer, with chunkier models either adding an extra tier or spreading out a bit wider.

Best for: often available in black or white, these discreet under brewer drawers work well in modern style kitchens. For minimalist homes, store them in your cabinets for clear counters.

Large Drawer

Wide, with plenty of space for every family member's favorite blends, large drawer coffee storage units can either be designed to go under your brewer or some versions are open style to fit inside your kitchen drawer.

Best for: choose an open drawer insert style for a minimalist look and place it inside your kitchen drawer for a clutter-free finish and easy accessibility and visibility. Otherwise, large standard drawers can look good in a variety of kitchen styles, although they tend to best complement a modern look.

Best for:contemporary kitchens work well with bamboo coffee storage units where they stand out as a contrast to man-made materials and bring warmth. Bamboo also looks good in traditional decor, where it can tie in with other natural pieces.

Metal Carousel

Discreet and minimal, a metal carousel is perhaps the least obtrusive in terms of looks, with a small footprint. It all depends on the pods you're storing, different bright colors liven up a metal carousel, while one type of pod in a dark shade is less of a feature.

Best for: use with bright colored pods and a variety of blend in a contemporary kitchen or modern decor. Used with less colorful pods, a metal carousel can work in a more industrial style kitchen or even a farmhouse style.
