If your living space is like mine, there is always more stuff lying around than actual places to put it. And that goes pretty much for every room. Near the doorway, it’s mail, a pile of catalogs I think I will eventually peruse and kiddie bric-a-brac. In the dining room, extra tablemats, homework detritus, random out-of-circulation salt-and-pepper shakers. In the den, mysterious remotes I am afraid to throw away, magazines, kids games and many lost parts of kids games. If only there were a way to neatly house all this peripheral stuff to keep it accessible but, more importantly, out of sight?
Well, there is and it’s called an accent cabinet. Accent cabinet? You might say, doesn’t that sound slightly exotic and a little offbeat? It does and that is what’s so great about it! An accent cabinet is anything you want it to be in any space you want it to be. A place to park your entryway paraphernalia? Check. An overflow storage vessel in the dining room? Check. A mini media console in a spare room? Check!
Best of all is they come in so many unique and eye-catching styles — you can literally spend days trawling the Internet for just the right one. But now you don’t have to, because we have narrowed it down for you!
