October Spotlight: Storage

Another month is upon us…how is it October already?  The air feels crisper, the days are getting just a little bit shorter every day.  Thoughts of fall, Halloween, soup, and fires are swirling around our head.  Football is playing in the background and we wonder what the long winter months ahead of us will bring.

As sad as it may make us, it is time to switch out that summer clothing and swap it with a more seasonally appropriate wardrobe.  I actually enjoy this task.  It is a little refresher for my closet, a time to purge the things I no longer care about and rediscover some hidden gems.  But in order to successfully manage this undertaking it is necessary to have the proper storage.  Oak for Less has you covered in this department.  Check out a few of the great options we offer that are stylish and functional for all of your additional storage needs.

Contemporary Oak Blanket Chest

This is a versatile piece that can be used for blankets, clothing, toys, or anything else you might want to stash away for later.  It can be utilized in a common living space or at the foot of the bed.  The beautiful blanket chest is available in ten different color choices and the materials are oak solids and veneers over plywood with no particle board.  It comes fully assembled and ready to use.


Mission Oak Blanket Chest

If you are looking for something with a few more details or pizazz than the contemporary chest, this solid oak piece offers a few more design elements that may appeal to you.  With a variety of color choices, you can enjoy added hardware details and a rimmed top.  This can easily be used as a bench for additional seating in any room.

Antique MC Collection Solid Wood Armoire


Sometimes we need more than just closet space.  This amazing armoire adds a rustic flare with lots of extra storage and a mirrored door.  All of the beautiful ironwork is hand crafted and it is solid pine construction with no veneers.  The finish is slightly distressed and the unique wood is highlighted by natural variances and characteristics that make it a one-of-a-kind piece.

Sedona Rustic Petite Storage Bed

Storage is an important commodity, and unfortunately many houses and apartments are not built with this in mind.  If you find yourself short on space, this platform style bed with a bookcase headboard and pedestal drawers might be the perfect fit for your bedroom.  Its unique design features natural slate inlays and a lightly distressed rustic finish.  And if that wasn’t enough additional space for you, the footboard has two door extra storage as well.

Each month we like to bring you some insight into the wide array of furniture that we offer at Oak for Less.  Some of our pieces are classic while others may have an unexpected contemporary or modern design.  If the antique aesthetic appeals to you, we have that too.  A home that functions well is a better way to relax.  We hope these storage ideas help with your organization and design style.
