Go with a compact cube.
A modest, modern unit with a tiny footprint--great for a kitchen or studio apartment.
Meet its many uses:
•cubby for a computer hard drive or printer
•file cabinet (fits legal or letter-size files)
•laptop living quarters

Take the zen minimal route.

•removable shelving makes for easy conversion to a TV cabinet

An extra-roomy organizer makes good use of often-wasted corner space.
How to repurpose it:
•slide-out keyboard ledge
•two tiers of superdeep shelves
•lower cabinet is great for hiding unattractive things behind closed doors
