9 Creative And Convenient Uses For Storage Cubes

Project Nursery

Storage cubes are the new storage solution as far as I’m concerned, because they’re great for holding way more than just books and knick knacks, and they don’t take up nearly as much space.

From DIYing your very own wet bar out of them to turning them into a desk with plenty of storage, there are a whole lot of ways that you could be using storage cubes around your home that you’ve likely never thought of before.

See 9 ways that you can get your home even more organized today!

1. Rolling Bar

Adding legs or wheels to the bottom of these shelves can instantly turn your storage cubes into a mobile wet bar. Cheers to you and your adorable new mini bar!

Using storage cubes as a media stand is a much more minimal way of keeping everything in its place. Because who has space for one of those giant entertainment centers, anyways?

9. Storage Bench

If you’ve got an entry way or a mud room where people can stop to take their shoes off, why not use a storage cube unit as a bench? It’s a great way to keep things tidy and have a comfy place to sit. Simply turn on its side, add a cushion to the top, and you’re all set.


Get ready to make your home way more organized and functional by simply readjusting the way you’re using your storage cubes.
