DIY Storage Projects for the Weekend
There are numerous options and designs for storage cabinets and organizers in your home. And lucky for you, there are lots of things you can do by yourself and would not even cost you much, if at all. Consequently, these DIY projects will keep your stuff totally organized in a precise and organized manner for any area and any room in your home.
Whether it’s the office, washroom, living room, bedroom, kitchen, or your garage, there’s always a way to make the best use of your place and organize your things in a smart and functional way that still retains an aesthetically pleasing style.
Systematic Desk Organization
Spruce up your office desk with various sized organizers for your supplies and files. Use as many file trays and cases as you may need, with labels of course, and suitably sized boxes to store receipts, postage stamps, envelopes, paper. You could repurpose mason jars or racks for your office supplies, e.g. staplers and staple wire, pens and pencils, scissors, glue, etc
Keep your documents in one compartment or shelf for your household’s essential documentations, filed in many different folders with appropriate labels. Make sure to separate them into utility bills (phone plan, water, electricity, and Wi-Fi subscriptions), financial statements, receipts for huge purchases (appliances, car, large furniture, general home enhancement purchases), dental and medical records, tax file returns, insurance policies and pension plans, and of course, employment and enrollment details.
Reorganize your wardrobe cabinet with multi-layered racks with separate, adjustable shelving and cabinets along with rod systems to fit all of your clothes. You could individualize your storage space with old boxes and baskets you can repurpose and redesign to serve as drawers for your socks, delicates, and bed linen.
Handy Bath Supplies
Use the empty space above your toilet and create a compact cabinet for in-bath storage for lotions, linen, shaving cream, perfume bottles, and all the hair or body products you use in your daily routine. You might also want to think of mounting a medicine cabinet to store your bottles of pills and other items that might not necessarily match your bathroom’s aesthetic.
Elevate Your Furniture
When you’re running low on storage but don’t exactly have the space to bring in more organizers, take a good look at your existing furnishings. Figure out where you can add in a few roll-out organizers and storage containers or bins to create space where people wouldn’t think to look.
You might want to use the lower part of your dining chairs, sofas, benches. You could also restructure your kitchen cupboards and closets to stock more stuff inside or put in storage cabinets under your coffee table or nightstand.
Make the Most of Your Garage
It’s always a great idea that when you have no more room to stash your things, nor any free space in existing furnishings to make storage space, just place them in your garage. Needless to say, make sure that you keep your stuff organized in a well-kept manner and won’t give you a difficult time when you’re searching for something in your garage.
Like any room in your home, make great use of your wall space, especially to hang hardware and handyman tools, and maximize your shelving options, especially if you want to park your car in your garage with ease.
Kid-Proof and Kid-Friendly
Contrary to popular opinion – if you have kids, you don’t stop modifying your furniture after they’ve surpassed their terrible two’s and three’s. In fact, it’s an ongoing process until they’re able to organize their belongings by themselves (in their rooms, of course). Your children will be more likely to organize their toys and things if they can actually reach the shelves, and it would help if they’re able to distinguish the drawers according to their needs and interests.
Because of that, it’s strongly recommended that you modify your kids’s closet shelves and hang rods to kid-friendly heights, and label their drawers and cabinets as appropriate to their age (e.g. pictures for toddlers and labels for kids who can read).
Restructure Your Cabinets
You may believe you already have your shelves and racks ironed out, but we can almost guarantee you – you don’t. Whichever the room, you can always organize your cabinets in a neater, more sorted manner with stackable and roll-out drawers and repurpose jars and containers for different-sized things in your cabinet.
One great way to do this one by one is to first clear the space, divide and conquer. Sort your things by type or by function and use drawers or baskets for each and every category, and pack them with racks and bins if you have to divide them further by size and maximize your space.
Utilize Your Walls
Whatever the room, it’s always a great idea to make the best use of your wall space, and an efficient way to do this is to set up shelf walls, cabinets and hanging containers to increase your storage space without crowding your home.
To thoroughly maximize your space, you can suspend shelves above the thresholds, windows and tall furniture (e.g. fridge, bed headboard), flank your doorways with bookshelves, and add storage ottomans below windows to level it out. Put functional but decorative objects on the upper racks and equip the shelves with drawers and containers to save vital items for each and every room.
Make the most of Your Vanity
Do NOT belittle how cluttered and untidy your small jewelries and accessories can make your table. Get appropriately sized containers and bins for tiny objects and hooks on your vanity or mirror to keep your necklaces and long accessories untangled.
