Storage benches just make life easier. Place them by the front door, and they give you a comfortable spot to lace up your shoes or slip on your coat. Put them in the living room or den, and they become an extra seat while keeping pillows and blankets within arm's reach. And if the nursery or playroom is always a mess? A storage bench can help reduce clean-up time. (And restore some parental peace of mind.)

Suffice it to say, storage benches are the ultimate cure-all when it comes to clutter — and we've found the best for every room in the house. Scroll on to see our favorite pieces and relish in the instant organization.
