If you have a tiny home, then you know that any storage item you bring into a space has to be a multitasking pro. But before you buy another boring plastic container, know that there are tons of chic options out there that can do double-duty with much more style. From wooden inlay boxes and rope baskets, to pegboard organizers and storage bins, you can find a chic option that works for every room. Just be strategic about what you group together, and get imaginative about what something can store. Here are 13 options that will help you put everything in the right place.

Metal Pegboard Organizer

Need a storage item that you can easily adjust and rearrange to fit whatever you want? Look no further than a pegboard — this super sleek option from Einadesign ($63) is all metal. If you’ve got it in your kitchen or work station, you can hang up all of your tools and still have room for a shelf or two.

Acrylic Case

An acrylic set of drawers from Muji ($38) is the perfect accessory for your desk. Fill a few drawers with office supplies, and use the others to corral important papers and mail. If you don’t have a lot of drawer space in the bathroom, this can also be filled with makeup and jewelry.
