Top tips for finding the right storage furniture online


We all know the importance of clever home storage – especially for growing families or those of us with lots of treasures and knick knacks (or a growing wine collection).

The longer you live in a home, the more you accumulate. One of the best things you can do as a homeowner or renting tenant is utilise smart storage to ensure your space is kept clean, and your items are safe and sound.

Your storage needs will depend mostly on what you need to store and for how long. This will then determine the quality and the size of the storage furniture you would need.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Are you storing by room or quantity?

Are you organisng new storage based on room, or based on how much stuff you need to store? It’s important to consider your storage needs now, but also for future – you never know what’s around the corner!

Before you browse online, try visualising the storage item your house and see whether it will work for your space or storage needs. You’ll know straight away your desired aesthetic for the space, and what storage you’d like for your items.

What will you be storing?

There’s different storage furniture for different needs. If you are planning to store clothes, then an armoire would be perfect for a small to medium bedroom, especially open ones where you can easily browse clothes. But if you’re storing technical gear, or lots of valuable items something sturdier is best for you.

Above all else, decide on the purpose of the storage furniture you’ll be looking for. This will make the browsing process a lot easier (it’s so easy to get sidetracked!). 

What’s aesthetic are you going for?

Consider your existing style throughout your space before jumping right in. Maybe you’re starting fresh and creating a new aesthetic – which is exciting in itself! Bedroom storage furniture and industrial storage furniture can be easy to place in most scenarios if you plan accordingly and measure your space. But office storage furniture online can be hard to get right if you’re buying in bulk and organising more than one piece, but we make it easy. 

Maybe it’s modern:

If modern design is your style, then applying this to your storage is important to consider – not essential, but worth keeping in mind, as storage is not necessarily the hero of your space. That being said – if it is the hero, and you’re adding storage to your living room, then it should match your overall aesthetic. 

We have many options to suit this style at Vavoom, it’s just about finding the right fit for you!

Industrial loft inspired:

The industrial loft-inspired look is a favourite for many – with accents of timber paired with rustic metal and exposed joinery, this style works beautifully for large open spaces, or to create a cozy space smaller space – such as this cute (and handy) wine cabinet.

If this is your style, opt for wooden storage furniture that utilizes the space well and furniture with exposed steel or metal joinery. You can easily find something to match this style amongst our huge collection of storage furniture online – we have you more than covered!

Go Scandi:

If you prefer a more simplistic design aesthetic, then go for storage furniture that’s in line with this – sleek and neutral with less frills. This might mean a crisp white wardrobe or neutral beige entertainment unit. 

Finally – consider your material:

The choice is always yours when it comes to home storage furniture, including the material you select! You want to ensure the material aligns well with both your needs and aesthetics and of course – is sturdy enough to store everything you need and will stand the test of time!

Timber and natural materials blend in seamlessly and create a warm look and feel. Use of iron, steel or other metals are much sturdier but can be seen as a harsher or more industrial aesthetic. Browse our full collection to find the right material and storage unit for you.
