It’s time to keep your stuff in line! The miscellaneous items you need in life can interrupt the clean lines and sleek look you love, but we’ve got some midcentury storage solutions that will have you living the clean, modernist life in no time.
A Little Minimalism Goes a Long Way
Perhaps the simplest solution is to pare down your stuff. You don’t have to be a full-blown minimalist to appreciate how much lighter and accomplished you’ll feel when you weed out the stuff that just collects dust. You’ll save money on storage solutions by having less to store in the first place. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have a better idea of how to get organized.
Sideboards and Credenzas
Midcentury sideboards and credenzas are staples of the style and provide good storage space. Look for maximum drawers to help you keep things out of sight. While you want to avoid a cluttered look, the surface area on top is another great place for storage.
Use a Danish teak wood magazine rack to corral your papers, files or magazines. Use a teak wood roll-top box to store small office supplies. A vintage sewing box is another handsome and handy midcentury storage solution with lots of compartments that also looks great in your midcentury home!
Modular storage with square cubes will be right at home with geometric, linear shapes and comes with the ability to keep things out of sight. If you’re successful paring things down, you could leave a few shelves empty to give it some breathing room.
