Small Accent Storage Cabinets, Consoles, Sideboards (Sources + Organizing Inspiration)

Accent cabinets can be placed throughout a home to provide storage and style. I’m always rearranging furniture to figure out what works best for us, so accent cabinets have been a versatile solution for us in every home. Plus they give you another surface to use for a lamp or seasonal decor!

They help you to get organized and work well as a place to tuck away useful/decorative/seasonal items that tend to end up as clutter on counters or tables when not in use. I love them for so many reasons! I’ll share some tips and ideas below.

In this post you’ll find sources for several cabinets my girls and I have in our homes as well as other suggestions.

A few ideas for how to use accent cabinets:

  • In a dining room for entertaining supplies – use little bins or baskets inside to store things like napkins and napkin rings, shelves for wine glasses etc…or for dish storage
  • In a living room or bathroom to store extra pillows or throws (also great spot to put a table lamp to warm up a dark corner)
  • Entryway – use a drawer or containers on shelves (store gloves, dog leashes etc), shoes, reusable grocery store bags, etc
  • Kids’ toys
  • In a bathroom for towels, bath supplies, toiletries
  • In an office as a printer stand and/or to store office supplies

Here are accent cabinets in our homes, and graphics with lots of sources linked below!
