Hauga cabinet with two doors

Ikea’s Hauga cabinet is plain and simple: It has one upper shelf and two lower shelves behind two cabinet doors. This pantry cabinet is great for small kitchens at only 27-1/2 by 45-5/8 inches, so if you live in a small apartment or with just one other person, it’s ideal. It comes in white or gray, so you can choose the color that best suits your kitchen’s interior. Place this handy, inexpensive Ikea kitchen cabinet tightly next to your existing counter space and organize away!

Havsta storage combination with glass doors

A taller, fancier option, the Havsta storage cabinet includes four levels of shelving behind glass cabinet doors. Its lower cabinetry is similar to the Hauga. The Havsta is your best bet if you want to display special dinnerware plates, mugs, wine glasses — you name it. In this way, it can sort of double as a china closet, if you so choose. The dimensions are 31-7/8 by 18-1/2 by 83-1/2 inches. In addition to white and gray, the Havsta is available in a dark brown color. Corner this cabinet or place it flush against a wall and get to optimizing your storage!

Its dimensions are 35-3/8 by 77-1/2 inches, so triple-check your measurements so you know you have enough space.
