A wardrobe works well. The Island Wardrobe (left, $2,990) and Bay Wardrobe (right, $2,890) are from Maine Cottage. Get the look for less by painting a thrift store find.

A storage bench can hide out almost anywhere: in an entryway, at the foot of a bed, under a windowsill. This is the Cube Cutout Storage Bench from West Elm ($239 - $349).

Put small blankets and sheets in a shoe cabinet. It has a small footprint and just a little bit of depth. These are from IKEA: Sandnes ($129), Trones ($39.99), and Innvik ($79.99).

It's not hard to find a good-looking sideboard, and credenzas are so multi-functional that they work almost anywhere. Above: Bjursta Sideboard from IKEA ($249) and Blu Dot Modulicious No. 1 ($529 - $629). Below: Concord Credenza from Room & Board ($1,999), Reve Dresser at Design Within Reach ($2,500).
