... a nice storage unit/bookcase? I've decided before I actually start minding that I need more storage, and the only place I have to put it is in my conservatory. It is for the children's books and toys, so the children need to be able to access it, but I don't want it to look particularly like children's storage, I want it to look like a nice unit. I do want it to have doors so that I can shut the mess away. It needs to be a modern unit as my house is quite modern. I don't want to spend more than £200 really. Can anyone offer me suggestions please?

But we managed to get them alot cheper in the sale we have had them for 2 years and they were alot cheaper then.

I like the chunky storage units from Ikea with square boxes in them... i have baskets in mine so all out of sight and they look really nice if you like baskets!

the units were £59 each and the baskets area tenner each, with eight slots in each unit.... they can go either upright or on their side, so versatile for making displays on top or ocovering a whole wall!
