Drawer Storage Organizer Ideas That Minimize Clutter or Hide It

Not having enough storage space is a struggle that most people face. Even when you have a big house, you often find stuff lying around and want to get it out of sight quick but also in an organized manner. Today, we are going to address this issue of always bumping into things by offering you some amazing drawer storage solution suitable for multiple types of home decors.

How to Choose the Right Drawer Storage

When you’re out looking to buy drawer storage, there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure that you’re actually spending money on the right product for you. The things that you have to pay attention to when choosing drawer storage include:

Available Space

The very first thing that should be in the back of your mind is where you’re going to place your new storage unit. In general, people choose to place their drawer storage next to a wall, but there is a matter of both width and weight to consider. You can always opt for tower drawers if you’re low on space, as these unit sacrifice width in favor of height determined by multiple drawers stacked on top of each other.

Construction

It’s great to see that storage drawers are available in so many different constructions options, ranging from wood and all the way down to plastic (not that plastic is the worth possible choice, but it’s often the least aesthetic one). The different materials are important to consider when you think about the whole room where you want to place the drawer unit in. For instance, wooden drawers aren’t always a good idea for bathroom where the air humidity is often high and might damage the wood. Plastic options are more suitable for kitchen, especially if we’re talking about clear plastic that allows you to see the contents of the drawers. With a product like that, you can store your fruit and vegetables and always know what to reach for in the middle of a cooking session.

Number of Drawers

The number of drawers will determine how much storage space you actually get, but also how efficiently you will be able to organize your space. It really depends on what you’re looking to store inside the drawers as well. For instance, if you’re interested in-drawer storage for an office, you might want to consider a unit with multiple small drawers, so that individual drawers can serve different object categories. For crafts, it’s also best if you choose smaller multiple drawers than a unit with three large ones. For storing towels or kitchen items/foods, you want to go for larger drawers that can hold multiple larger items.

Accents

Paying attention to drawer accents is important if you’re interested in the visual appeal of the drawer and the room where you’ll be placing it in. Accents are also important in a sense that they can help you get a better experience when using the product. For example, it’s always best to choose drawer storage units that have accents matching the existing hardware that’s already in the room.
