This wiki has been updated 20 times since it was first published in March of 2018. A set of storage drawers can take an area that feels like a cluttered war zone and turn it into a neat and tranquil space you can enjoy. The options we've gathered for this list will give you a way to consolidate and organize everything, from kitchen gadgets to toys to linens to office supplies, while, in some cases, adding a little style to your home at the same time. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 25, 2020:

There is no one-size-fits-all storage solution that works for every need, so we wanted to include variety in this list, while also keeping a focus on quality. We like the Cerbior Wide Dresser because it looks as attractive, and is as functional, as any other dresser you might put on display in a bedroom or other living space, yet comes for a fraction of the price of those. At the same time, it could just as easily be used to organize a closet, without feeling like you are hiding an expensive piece of furniture. The Household Essentials Victorian is also an attractive option most wouldn't mind leaving on display in areas guests might frequent, and its vertical design means it doesn't use up too much floor space.

While it isn't designed to accommodate nearly as much stuff as the above two options, the Kate and Laurel Apothecary 209260 boasts a rustic appeal, with its classic metal hardware and solid wood construction. It is perfect for keeping small items organized, like desk supplies or your favorite essential oils.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have basic, plastic models that you might not want to leave out in a living room, but are more than suitable for keeping office and art supplies organized, such as the Iris Cart, Sterilite Small White, and Honey-Can-Do CRT-01683. When it comes to versatility, the Iris Cart is a winner, as it comes in six options, ranging from 3 to 10 drawers, so there should be one to fit every need, whether in a classroom or home. The Sterilite Small White also scores marks for flexibility, since the six units can be stacked or used separately.

If you simply need something to help you keep items contained when slipping them under a bed, the Sorbus Foldable will do nicely. The units can also be slipped into more permanent drawers, such as those in your bedroom dresser, and used as organizers for your socks, underwear, and other small accessories.

Special Honors

The Container Store Grey Opaque Modular Stackable Drawers An extremely versatile and useful option, these modular drawers from The Container Store come in six sizes and are sold as individual units, all of which can stack on top or alongside one another. This allows you to buy as many or as little as you need to create a truly customized storage solution.

Ikea Moppe If you need a mini chest of drawers to keep small items organized, the Ikea Moppe is a decent option. It can be placed on top of a desk, table, or other surface and has a total of six compartments, in three sizes. It is made of untreated wood, which you can leave as is for a more rustic appearance, or paint or varnish in your color of choice if you prefer.
