Here are my top home office storage solutions to get you started – happy organising!

I just love the beautiful colour of the Light Blue Metal Cabinet. This piece has been inspired by the vintage industrial era and has been built using textured metal. The item has been distressed so it looks more authentic and will get even better when you’ve worn it in. With nine easy access drawers, you have enough space to organise all your office sundries. You also have room on top of the cabinet to sit your printer or reference books. It stands upon slim legs with rounded ends. The measurements are 76cm wide, 76cm high and 34cm in depth – £280 from Urban Outfitters (UK).

The Kare Six Basket Cabinet is fun. You get six basket drawers which have been authentically aged for that industrial touch. The baskets come in assorted colours and styles for interest with numbers on the front. These are housed within a metal frame which stands upon casters so can be rolled around where needed. This storage unit is great because you get visibility of the contents. It would also work well in the kitchen for fruit and veg storage. The measurements are 55cm wide, 100cm in height and 47cm in depth – £350 from Urban Outfitters (UK).
