I would suggest cabinets. Shelving without doors are just dust collectors.
Drawers inside the cabinets are even better. Preferably full pull drawers.
Hanging tools on the wall is nice if you do not have that many tools but hopefully you will get to the point that this solution is no longer efficient and uses up too much space.
Rolling storage is a great way to be mobile and provide additional work surfaces. If they can roll under a work bench, then you have doubled your work surface area. I can roll out a couple of storage bins and slap a portable work surface across them for even more bench space, if needed.
Layout and measurement tools should be kept in one safe place that is easily accessible.

Try to think stations. A station for the drill press, once for the RAS or chop saw, one for the router stuff, one for the band saw, table saw, power drill station, etc. You really want to be able to keep track of all the different accessories for each of your power tools.
