DIY Storage Solutions For An Organized Interior Space

A busy home often means your stuff seems to multiply overnight. Whether it’s the kids toys, your sentimental items, or your seasonal clothing; they all need a home, and that home shouldn’t be on the floor. Storage can become your best friend, and for an organized interior (most of the time) you need to think of the areas of your home that aren’t currently being utilized.


Neglected corners, spaces under the stairs, and even your attic can all become functional spaces that look great and provide a neat home for your family’s belongings. Store-bought pieces of furniture may not squeeze into the nooks and unusually-shaped areas of your home, and bespoke storage solutions can be an expensive investment, especially as the holiday season approaches (that’s crept up quickly). Therefore, it might be time to give yourself and your partner a DIY job or two, so that you can create simple, effective, design-savvy storage in your home. The following are some ideas, inspiration, and tips for those ready to spend a weekend in overalls for a neat and organized house.

Get Equipped


You’ll want the flexibility to create a storage space that can be as discreet, or as eye-catching as you like. Many utilize large areas of shelving as display areas, and they can house an array of your decorative, special, and sentimental items. Therefore you need to ensure that the wood you use fits in with the rest of your decor, or can be painted a color of your choice. You’ll need to visit sites like GetReciSaw.com so that you have the tools to cut your materials accurately, and it’s always worth heading to a DIY store for some expert advice on the best-suited wood for the job.


You’ll need equipment to sand and smooth edges, accurately measure spaces, and the fixtures and fittings to secure the shelving within the space. Look into sites like Pinterest.com and discover some of the best ways to paint and stain wood, and give your room the designer edge.


Choose Your Space


`Whether you’re creating a fun storage solution for your kids and their toys, or you want a hidden space where you can put the Christmas decorations away for eleven months of the year; it’s all about picking the perfect spot. If you’ve got your wood, tools, and the rest of your equipment; you can be as creative and imaginative as you like. Perhaps your kids could have shelves and cupboards on wheels so that they can maneuver their toys around the house with ease. Or those space above your wardrobes would make excellent places for those annual items that need hiding most of the time.

For some clever storage ideas take a look here and begin to think about how you can incorporate the ideas into your home space. Write a list of what you’ll need, gather your things together, and roll up your sleeves this weekend; you’ll have a happy, clean, and organized interior in no time!
