Living in a small space forces you to be clever when it comes to creating proper areas for storage. Although there are loads of products designed to help you get your home organised and your items stored, many can be quite costly. No need to fret—there are plenty of fun and creative DIY storage ideas that’ll help your manage your small space. From everyday household products like tension curtain rods that can be used as cabinet dividers to an old magazine rack to keep your pot and pan lids neatly organised, there are numerous ways that you can easily organise every room in your house. Here is just a sample of the unique DIY storage solutions for your home.
Shoe Organisers: Not Just for Footwear
It’s always great when you can use storage solutions designed for one type of organisation for another, and that’s why the clear shoe organiser is the perfect item for multi-faceted organisation. Hang it on your pantry door, label the pockets with colourful tags, and use it to store various kitchen utensils and supplies. Use it in your bedroom to hold your jewellery or other small accessories or cut it in half and turn it into a toiletry organiser that can be hung on the back of the door in the loo. What’s more, you can use these organisers to store art and office supplies, mail, or bills. Browse the Container Shop for shoe organisers and other storage tools.
Wardrobes that Aren’t For Clothes
Wardrobes are the perfect solution for lack of closet and storage space and, with the latest styles and designs, wardrobes can be used for more than just a place to keep your clothes. Get a few tier hangers or hanger trees to drape accessories, such as scarves, hair bands, bracelets, and necklaces or screw hooks into the back of the wardrobe and hang your handbags and purses. If you’re in need of more shelf space, forgo the closet part all together and add your own shelves or attach plastic bins and baskets that can be used to hold smaller, lighter items. You can find the latest wardrobes and sturdy storage pieces at Dreams UK.
Stylish Shelving Installations
Whether you make your own custom shelving unit out of galvanised-steel pipes and wooden shelves or you mount old, hardcover books to your walls, there are a variety of ways you can craft your own unique shelves to add both style and additional storage space to your home. The chic, rustic design of the industrial do-it-yourself shelving project will give any space a cool, modern touch. Plus, you can easily find all the necessary supplies at any home improvement store. If you’re not that handy or don’t have the time to invest in an extensive DIY venture, use simple items like old hardback books or a no longer used ladder (which can also double as charming magazine rack) to make easy, yet brilliant shelving installations. Not only are these shelves fully functional, but they also make engaging conversation pieces.
