Office Boxes and Bins for Stylish Storage


We all need to keep our work spaces organized. Having plenty of office boxes and bins on hand can help, with bonus points if they look good while doing the job.

This was my home office in our last house. I chose a calming color for the walls (try Bluegrass White for a similar look) and painted the trim and woodwork (Crisp Linen White is a favorite—creamy, but still reads as white). The shelves offered tons of open storage, and I maximized the organization by filling the bottom row with baskets that fit perfectly.

A little surprise is that some of those boxes were filled with toys! I work from home, and having some toys nearby to keep my kids busy worked well for me.


Storage Boxes


I like to bring a little neatness and order to even the smallest of spaces too. My desk drawer used to be a jumble of pens, binder clips, cords and more, until I added a shallow drawer divider. It was sold as a jewelry organizer, but it’s great for separating all those little things that otherwise get lost and end up smushed way in the back.

So much better than having everything all loosey-goosey! If you’re on the lookout for some office boxes and bins of your own, I’ve gathered up a dozen for you to choose from.
