Storage comes in all shapes and sizes, and small cabinets can be a really effective way of adding storage solutions in places where you have less available space, as well as offering surface space and style solutions.
Sideboards, bookshelves, dressers, and wardrobes all offer large storage areas in various rooms of the house. But sometimes you don’t have the available space for a larger format storage solution. Bathrooms, home offices or entryways all need storage options too, but might not have the floor space to accommodate a bigger piece. That’s when small storage cabinets are the ideal solution. A small bathroom cabinet or small file cabinet can fit in narrow spaces or under desktops, providing much-needed storage space for smaller items. Small entryway cabinets are ideal for narrow hallways where depth is an issue and bedside tables can be really useful next to the bed.
Small can be useful too, and well-made small storage can still add a stylistic element to any space, as well as offering cupboards, drawers, and tabletop space. A small sideboard cupboard next to your dining table can be ideal for glassware or occasional service wear. Or a small locking cabinet can be a welcome addition to a home office. In an entryway, a small cabinet with drawers can be the ideal place to keep keys, phone chargers, or other small items you may need when leaving the house.
Big may be beautiful but great things come in small packages and small cabinets can cover a huge range of design styles and material choices. Everything from white to black and all the colors and tones in between are an option, made in a choice of materials including glass, wood, and metal. Whatever your overall design or color scheme, there will be a small cabinet for your space. Match to your sofa color in your living room, choose a material that works in your kitchen or create the ultimate welcome in your entryway with a stylish small cabinet.
White and black are always popular as they can work in more or less any colour or design scheme. Natural wood tones are also a fashionable choice, showing off the build quality and adding natural materials to your space.
Wood is a tough and durable material that often looks better with age, although it can chip and dent. Metal is a very solid material but can dull over time if not treated correctly. Essentially, it’s all down to your preference but a bit of care and attention and choosing good quality products will always help.
Buy from reputable retailers who offer good quality products and look for material choices that offer the best quality, such as hard woods or treated metals.
