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.

8. Media Stand

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.
