Boxes are home must-haves as they can serve as great storage pieces for your space. You can even stash them anywhere—under the bed, on top of shelves, or leave a neat pile in one corner of the home.

How do you choose the right boxes for your space? “When looking for boxes, choosing the best ones depends on where you'll use them, and what you'll put in it," design consultant Elle Uy shares.
