How to style your storage

Tame living-room clutter by building your storage around the new-look BESTÅ system. Its modular design lets you plan a layout that’s perfect for your space, and the choice of doors and legs mean you can customise to your style. It’s the perfect make-it-yours solution!

The new VASSVIKEN honeycomb door covers give the BESTÅ storage unit a modern twist. Maximise the way you use the space inside with boxes to organise things by activity or type. It makes it easy to grab the box you need, without emptying out the whole cupboard.

With BESTÅ as your base, you can add to your storage with wall-mounted shelves – mixing in open storage keeps the space feeling light and is a chance to make a visual statement. Keep it balanced – group things by colour, type, material. And remember the stylist’s tip of displaying objects in odd numbers – it’s said to be more pleasing to the eye!

Use the tops of storage units as an extra surface for displays. Start with a focal point, like this EVEDAL table lamp. Then build up a display around it using objects and artwork of varying heights and textures. Unsure about mixing colours? Stick to one colour palette to tie the display together.
