Ikea Besta units - I love the idea of a complete wall of units.Could be used in any room including a kitchen or playroom. The glossy finish reflects light back into the room and would hide a multitude of clutter.
Wicker storage unit between the washer and dryer. A little light weight for heavy detergent, but a perfect spot for missing socks and dryer sheets. It could also work well for small tools and home maintenance items.
